Election 2020: Angry NDC Members In New Edubiase Threaten To Vote ‘Skirt And Blouse’

Published

on


Some members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the New Edubiase Constituency in the Ashanti region have vowed not to vote for the party in the impending elections.

The group at a press conference said they will not vote for the party’s Parliamentary candidate, Abdul Salam Adams if the leadership in the constituency does not change him.

The group calling itself the Aggrieved NDC Members in New Edubiase who claim to number over five thousand said they would rather vote for the candidate of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) than vote for the NDC Parliamentary candidate.

The NPP candidate is the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for the areas who is also a Deputy Minister of Food and Agriculture, George Boahen Oduro.

They claimed at the press conference that the candidate was imposed on the nine hundred and thirty six (936) delegates of the NDC in the constituency.

This, they said is an affront on democracy and hence insisted that they won’t cast ballots for him in the December elections.

At a press conference led by the group’s Chairman, George Mensah who also doubles as constituency Director of Election in the NDC said the imposition is in breach of Article 46 Clause 8 of the NDC constitution.

“This is a breach of Article 46 clause (8) section b of the NDC constitution which frowns upon anti-party conduct that interfere and that put the party in ridicule, hatred or contempt against the current crop of the party’s executives in the constituency and the candidate, Mr Abdul Salam himself,” he read.

“In light of this, the group deems it highly to stay away from the party to enable them re-launch and embark the journey of skirt and blouse that was born four years ago (2016) in the New Edubiase Constituency which saw our first and ever lost of the parliamentary seat”, the statement read in part.

The New Edubiase Constituency until 2016 had been a stronghold of the opposition NDC in the Ashanti region but lost the seat for the first time since 1992 to the NPP.

Several visits to the constituency in 2016, the construction of New Edusiase Town Roads and a sports stadium by the then President and flag bearer of the NDC, John Dramani Mahama could not help the parliamentary candidate, Ernest Kofi Yakah to win a fourth term.

The NPP won the seat for the first time with George Boahen Oduro polling 18,477 representing 56.47% of valid votes cast against NDC’s Ernest Kofi Yakah’s 14,050 representing 42.94%.

The group has vowed to extend the margin between the NPP and the NDC by 10,000 votes if the opposition party goes ahead with Abdul Salam Adams as its parliamentary candidate for the 2020 elections; they would, however, vote for the party’s presidential candidate, John Dramani Mahama.

Mahama Was Sharing Nose Masks, Not Money – NDC Reacts To Alleged Money Sharing

Published

on


The NDC campaign team has reacted to a video making rounds on social media which sought to create the impression that the NDC flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama was sharing money on his tour of the Bono Region.

In a video widely circulated on social media, the former President could be seen occassionally reaching for his pocket and giving out something which was not so clear in the video to random supporters.

Though the NPP had alleged that the NDC flagbearer was sharing cash on his campaign, the NDC campaign team has officially debunked those assertions, insisting that the former President only gave out branded Nose Masks.

Below is the full statement issued by the NDC campaign team………….

PRESS STATEMENT

DISREGARD FAKE REPORTS OF MAHAMA SHARING MONEY

The JOHN MAHAMA 2020 Campaign has become aware of false, misleading and malicious publications by certain online portals, which claim that the presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr John Dramani Mahama, shared money to his supporters on Monday when he resumed his tour of the Bono Region.

The said reports are untrue and completely borne out of the desperate and fertile imaginations of the author(s).

For the records, and as it has become typical of Mr Mahama on his tour of the regions, he shares JOHN MAHAMA 2020 branded nose masks to people and occasionally talks about how to stop the spread of the coronavirus disease. This morning was no exception when Mr Mahama shared several hundreds of his campaign’s branded nose masks, aprons and T-shirts.

The general public is therefore entreated to disregard the piece of fake news and lazy journalism, which unsuccessfully attempts to turn Mr Mahama’s act of kindness into a weapon against his campaign.

The BNI Has Informed Akufo-Addo That He Will Lose The 2020 Polls – Dr. Apaak Alleges

Published

on


The MP for Builsa South in the Upper East Region, Dr. Clement Apaak has claimed that President Akufo-Addo has been informed by the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) that he is going to lose the 2020 elections.

According to the legislator, the president has been informed he will lose the polls through a number of research works and surveys conducted by the BNI and other institutions.

Dr. Apaak believes that the President in a bid to save himself from defeat has started implementing some of the manifesto promises of the NDC but that will not be enough to save him.

NADAA knows full well that if the December elections are free, fair and transparent he can’t win,”. He said.

Asiedu Nketia Invites Peace FM And Kwame Sefa Kayi To Sit Down And Resolve Their Differences

Published

on


The General Secretary of the opposition NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has extended a letter to the management of Media giants, Peace FM inviting them to a meeting to resolve their recent differences.

The NDC officially severed ties with Peace FM’s flagship program, Kokrokoo a few months ago after their attempt to get the Station to withdraw their former Central Regional Chairman, Allotey Jacobs from the program failed.

Though veteran Journalist, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako alleged on the show a couple of weeks ago that the NDC was begging behind the scenes to be allowed to return the show, the NDC issued a statement through their communication’s directorate that they had no intentions of returning to that show.

Following the NDC’s statement by Sammy Gyamfi, Peace FM issued a formal apology letter signed by their Managing Director, Fadda Dickson, begging the Party to let sleeping dogs lie.

Writing to officially acknowledge receipt of Peace FM’s letter, Mr Asiedu Nketia applauded the Media giants for the conciliatory tone of their letter, while also inviting the management of the station, together with the host and production team for a meeting to trash out their differences.
