Some aggrieved members in the Manhyia North Constituency of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have accused their regional executives of deleting their names from the voters’ album which the party used for the last Saturday constituency executives’ elections.
The members who won in the polling station executives’ re -elections which was characterised by several chaos, went to the voting centre last Saturday only to be told that their names were not in the newly- created album for the constituency.
Instead, they claimed, others who lost during the polling station elections had their names and pictures in the album a situation they said can affect the NPP in the national elections if not checked.
The Ashanti regional Chairman of the party Mr. Bernard Antwi Boasiako and his Deputy Regional Organiser Daniel Boateng were the most vilified as the aggrieved members pointed accusing fingers at them as the main architects of the incident.
Consequently one Madam Ama Bozen of CS polling station cursed the executives.
She could not understand why her party leaders were always on the heels of the Electoral Commission (EC) but could not show same when it came to internal elections.
Some others also invoked the dreaded Antoa deity and other water deities in the Ashanti region to avenge the expulsion of their names from the album which has rendered them incapable to vote in their parliamentary primaries.
Meanwhile the newly-elected executives have vowed to work hard to retain the seat and as well increase the presidential votes of the party’s flag-bearer, Nana Addo Dankwa-Akufo Addo.
The new executives are, Chairman- Mr. Kwaku Oppong, First Vice Chairman- Kwaku Amofa Sarpong, 2nd Vice Chairman- Ernest Kwaku Agyei and Secretary- Tony Ameyaw Gyamfi. The rest are, Dep. Secretary- Francis Anane, Organiser- Isaac Boakye, Treasurer- Fred Addae, Women Organiser- Mrs. Margaret Baawuah and Youth Organiser- Moro Awudu.
