The Coordinator of the National Youth Employment Agency (NYEA) of Karaga District office says his life is in danger following threats on his life.

Baba Janga claims the Constituency Chairman, Abdulai Ziblim have threatened to kill him for not recruiting his people into the agency.

The embattled Coordinator has taken refuge in the Northern regional capital, Tamale for protection.

Baba Janga was attacked by some alleged supporters of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) after they accused him of being discriminatory in the recruitment exercise.

The office of the District Chief Executive was also shut down while the motorbike of the coordinator was set on fire early Wednesday morning.

Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Thursday, Mr. Janga said he has escaped over 20 attacks all masterminded by the chairman.

But Mr Janga said his office only recruited those who were qualified for the job.

“Those I recruited are our party members…I can mention each town and those considered and nobody can contest it,” he said.

“The issue is that with NYEA before you are employed you have to apply and only those who applied and were scrutinized were picked,” he added.

Mr Janga said although only 18 people were allocated to the district to be considered, he intervened for the number to be increased to 26 because of the huge number of applications.

He accused Mr Ziblim of frustrating efforts of office holders because his preferred candidate was not considered for the DCE position among other positions.
