Ashanti Regional Executives Can’t Determine Who Goes U …
The General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu has hinted that the Ashanti Regional Executives can’t determine who goes unopposed in all the 44 constituencies in Ashanti Region.
“There is nothing wrong for the MPs to plead for another term in office from the delegates. You can go to everywhere cry, it is up to those who are contesting you to decide whether to discontinue or continue to contest the primaries, but beyond that as a party, we will open nomination and if nobody comes to pick nomination forms out of sympathy then you can go unopposed,” he clarified.
“This time around, we will zone the country into 4 and get national officers to join the region and constituency to conduct the vetting. After that, we will determine what to do next, and so if you are going to kneel, cry and beg delegates at this time, I think you are wasting time,” he indicated.
“Anybody with doubt in the Ashanti Region should be rest assured that their doubts are wrong. Most of the things you have heard of which others have taken them seriously are rumours. It can’t be that all the 44 constituencies, one person can determine who should go unopposed and those that can be contested; where can this be done?” he said on Okay FM.
The Member of Parliament for Bantama Daniel Okyem Aboagye has allegedly gone down on his knees to beg the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, to allow him go unopposed in the upcoming NPP parliamentary primary.
Mr. Aboagye came under the spotlight after reports emerged that he knelt and begged Chairman Wontumi, to declare his constituency as one of the areas where parliamentary primaries should not be held.
