Despite the earlier protest against the Sagnarigu District Chief Executive (DCE) nominee, Mariam Iddrisu, was today (Monday), overwhelmingly confirmed.
All 33 assembly members voted Yes.
She is the first confirmed female DCE out of four among the 26 Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives in the Northern Region.
The remaining yet to be confirmed female MMDCE nominees, are Hajia Ayishetu Seidu for Savelugu/Nantong, Hajia Amama Shaibu for Tolon and Alele Veronica Heming for the Bole districts.
The Northern Regional Minister, Salifu Saeed, duly inducted Mariam Iddrisu into office. The Sagnarigu DCE thanked the assembly members for giving her the nod and called for deeper collaboration.
There was heavy security presence at the assembly premises to avert any untoward situation.
