The National Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party(NPP) Henry Nana Boakye, popularly known a s Nana B has refuted claims that he had gone to campaign in some Senor High Schools in the country.
Nana B, who who was caught on camera having an interaction with some students in the SHSs despite the Ghana Education Service(GES) putting a ban on such visits said, he had only visited the schools to monitor the registration exercise but not as being speculated.
The National Youth Organizer explained that, he was formally accredited to check the exercise being organized by Electoral Commission .
“For the records, I never campaigned in any of the schools I visited. I visited these schools as an accredited party official and I received the official accreditation from the Electoral Commission. Indeed, all political parties obtained the official accreditation from the EC and some NDC members also visited the SHS campuses.”
The Electoral Commission registered students in the various SHSs on the 10th and 11th of July respectively.
This was necessary as students were not allowed to go out per the COVID-19 protocols instituted by government which had led to a ban on student outings by GES.
