Over 1000 members of the opposition party National Democratic Congress (NDC), including former Constituency Executives such as Former constituency organiser (Frank Obey Gyata), former Constituency Elections director (George Mensah), former Deputy Constituency Secretary (Mark Dadzie) and some members of the party has vowed to vote for NPP parliamentary candidate Hon. Goerge Boahen Oduro the MP New Edubiase Constituency who doubles as the Deputy Minister for Agricultural in the Ashanti Region.
Their organization called, Aggrieved NDC Members of New Edubiase Constituency stated in their press conference that, the party has imposed their parliamentary candidate Abdul Adams Salam on the Nine Hundred and Thirty Six (936) delegates across the constituency and deprived them from enfranchising their right and also disqualified his contender with no tangible reason.
Again, The Candidate Abdul Adams Salam in 2016 elections preached skirt and blouse against the then NDC MP Hon. Enerst Kofi Yakah after losing the primaries.
Below is the statement presented to the media by the group.
Friends from media, ladies and gentlemen, you are wormly welcome and thank you for honouring our invitation and making time with us this morning to this press encounter.
We are using this opportunity to extend our greetings to the regional and National executives committee of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
You may —call,we involved you all here to New Edubiase on the 22nd day of August, 2019 when we expressed our disappointment and displeasure over the choice of parliamentary candidate of our great party National Democratic Congress (NDC),here in New Edubiase constituency.
Inspire of all the plea, grievances and reasons we’ve put forward for election to be held in choosing candidate were ignored. However, some few members of the constituency executives and opinion leaders bulldozed their way through and have succeeded imposing Mr Adams Abdul Salam over the entire constituency as candidate, depriving Nine hundred and thirty six(936) delegates across the constituency to enfranchise their right.
In accordance with Article 46 clause (8) section (b) which frowned on “Anti party conduct that interfere and that put the party in ridicule, hatred or contempt” which some of the current and former constituency executives as well as the parliamentary candidate for 2020 himself have violated in 2016 general election by preaching “skirt and blouse”,some of whom were visibly seen paying loosing bonus against the then parliamentary candidate,Hon.Ernest Kofi Yskah. Yet remained in the party as loyals.
Friends from the media, today Tuesday 15th September, 2020.We wish to settle the dust that has been blowing in the air for over a year now for peace and tranquillity to prevail in the party.
As a group, we have pondered thoroughly over the misunderstanding that has engulfed the party in the constituency and decided to do the honourable thing considering the Article 46 of the NDC constitution and its implications.
In line of this, the group deemed it highly to stay away from the party to enable them re–lunch and embark the journey of skirt and blouse that was borned four years ago(2016) in New Edubiase constituency which saw our first and ever lost of the parliamentary seat.
We wish everyone in this contest Good Luck and stay blessed.
