Moro Sakyiama Yakubu, an aspirant in the NPP primaries in the Fanteakwa North Constituency, who was disqualified by the Parliamentary vetting Committee of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the constituency has announced his decision to go independent.
His declaration comes at the back of warning by the Eastern Regional Executives of the NPP that the party will physically or legally deal with any aspirant who goes independent.
Moro Sakyiama Yakubu was the only contender who was challenging the incumbent Member of Parliament Kwabena Amankwa Asiamah but was disqualified. His disqualification sparked a lot of outrage among party faithful who lamented the decision.
A week ago, over 300 Polling Station and some Constituency executives held a press conference calling on the National Executive Committee of the NPP to reconsider the decision to let their Member of Parliament unopposed.
Some Party members who are of the belief that Mr. Moro was not treated fairly by the constituency executives, have announced their intention to vote “skirt and blouse”.
