Some irate NPP youth in the Northern Region today May 15, 2018, attacked workers of the Ghana Highways Authority over claims that road contracts have been awarded to NDC contractors.

The leader of the NPP youth group identified as the Kandahar Boys in Tamale entered the premises of the National Highways Authority and requested from one Alberta Akorogo to see the director of the authority who is currently in Accra for a meeting.

According to the Director's Secretary, the leader of the NPP youth group left only to return a few minutes later with a number of irate people with weapons who assaulted her and other workers of the Highways authority.

The Secretary, Alberta Akorogo stated that the group alleged that the Highways Authority was only awarding contracts to NDC members while NPP members in the region hardly get any contract.

According to reports, the group scattered office documents and some very important files after they forced their way into the main offices. The workers had to flee for their lives after the group became agitated and more aggressive.

The workers at the Authority mentioned that this is not the first time such an attack has occurred but no arrest has been made yet.
