Curse invoking NPP Supporters In Trouble After Being Summoned By Chiefs For Performing Rituals In The Offin River

Published

on


Some supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) are to face the Offinso Traditional Council after the former had performed rituals in the Offin River.

The Council had summoned the protesters and leadership of the NPP in the Ashanti Region over the incident. The aggrieved NPP supporters on Thursday took over the streets of the Offinso South Constituency after reports emerged that two aspirants had been disqualified from contesting the party’s parliamentary seats.

According to the supporters they do not agree with the sitting Member of Parliament (MP) going unopposed therfore party leadership should allow the aspirants to contest.

Videos which circulated on social media showed some of the aggrieved NPP supporters slaughtering a ram while others poured liquors in the River Offin as they invoked curses on top NPP executives.

“All that we want is peace. All that they want is for the elections to be held for peace and justice to prevail. So we are pleading with the national level to allow peace to prevail in Offinso. For the ritual, it is because we believe in our gods to give us justice in the community. It is not because we want to fight.”

“There is going to be an election in Offinso South. There won’t be anything like someone is going to impose someone we don’t want on us. If they do, we will boycott the election,” a supporter said.

However, in reaction to the incidence, the Offinso Traditional Council said the action by the NPP was ‘unwarranted’ and ‘needless’. They also rubbished claims the Paramount Chief of Offinso, Nana Wiafe Akenten sanctioned the act.

“When the Paramount Chief heard the news he sent a delegation to reach out to the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the NPP but he ignored our invitation. And let me state on record that the Paramount Chief, Nana Wiafe Akenten knows nothing about this. Nobody sought permission from him and he wouldn’t even sanction this,” a member of the Council, Nana Kwaku Wiafe noted.

Another member added: “We are a committee which look into such matters; and so we have been tasked by the Paramount Chief to summon them[the protesters]. Invoking curses and performing such rituals will not be tolerated. They are natives of Offinso and they know the consequences of their actions. We will not let them go unpunished.”

Meanwhile the NPP’s parliamentary primaries is scheduled for June 20, 2020 after being postponed from April 25, 2020 due to the outbreak of the Covid-19.

After a steering committe meeting held on June 1, 2020, the party agreed to hold the election in electoral areas rather than at the constituency level in order to ensure social distancing.

Published

on


The National Youth Organiser of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Henry Nana Boakye, known as, Nana B has expressed contentment with the judgement by the Cape Coast High Court on Wednesday, July 28, annulling results of the 2020 Parliamentary Elections.

According to him the judgement is a victory for rule of law.

Addressing the press after the ruling, Nana B said “today is another victory for rule of law. This a petition that was filed by our own friend Michael Ankomah-Nimfah.

“Today the court, after almost six months has upheld our position and the petitioner’s position for that matter. We had repeatedly said Honourable Quayson at the time of filing his nomination to contest as an MP was a Canadian and also a Ghanaian.”

Meanwhile the National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo has described the judgment as a travesty of justice.

Addressing the press after the ruling, Mr Ampofo said the judges’ decision came as a shock to the NDC and its lawyers.

According to him, parties to the case knew that a ruling by the Supreme Court on Tuesday, July 27 directed that due processes are followed to transfer the case to the apex court of Ghana for hearing.

Ofosu Ampofo Reacts To Shocking Cancellation Of Assin North Parliament Results Victory; Says It’s A Travesty Of Justice

National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo has described the judgement by the Cape Coast High Court on Wednesday, July 28, annulling results of the 2020 Parliamentary Elections as a travesty of justice.

Addressing the press after the ruling, Mr Ampofo said the judges’ decision came as a shock to the NDC and its lawyers.

According to him, parties to the case knew that a ruling by the Supreme Court on Tuesday, July 27 directed that due processes are followed to transfer the case to the apex court of Ghana for hearing.

The court presided over by Justice Kwasi Boakye, ordered for fresh elections to be conducted in the Assin North constituency.

The case of the petitioner is that the MP at the time of filing to contest the 2020 parliamentary elections, had not renounced his Canadian citizenship and thus held dual nationality.

Handing his judgement on Wednesday, the judge said the MP, Joe Gyaakye Quayson violated constitutional provisions and other statutory provisions that guide Ghana’s elections.

The NDC has expressed their intention to contest the judgement by the court.

NPP Likely To Contest Bagbin’s Election As Speaker Now That Assin North MP Has Been Driven Away

Published

on


The New Patriotic Party is likely to initiate steps to contest the election of Alban Bagbin as Speaker of Parliament after the election of NDC MP for Assin North, Joseph Gyaakye Quayson was annulled by the Cape Coast High Court.

The NPP, on the dawn of January 7 when the 8th parliament of the 4th Republic was being ushered in, conceded the speakership of the house to the NDC’s Alban Bagbin under acrimonious circumstances.

The NPP had failed to get their preferred candidate, Prof. Aaron Mike Ocquaye elected as speaker following a heated election that saw the military called into the chamber to restore order.

Majority leader, Osei Kyei Mensah has since insisted that his caucus decided to concede the speakership to Mr. Bagbin in order to foster peace in the house.

However, now that the NDC is one seat short in parliament, and with NDC MP for Jomoro, Dorcas Affo Toffey also likely to lose her seat due to the same circumstances, it is increasingly becoming likely that the NPP caucus in parliament might attempt to aim for the seat of the Speaker.

The coming days will be very interesting indeed.
