NDC Disqualifies Parliamentary Aspirant In Odododiodioo Who Defected From NPP



Odododiodioo Constituency Faces Political Turmoil Ahead of Primaries

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has officially disqualified Michael Nii Yarboi, a parliamentary aspirant in the Odododiodioo Constituency, citing his recent defection from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as a violation of the party’s constitution.

The decision, reached by the party’s Functional Executive Committee (FEC) following a report by a Special Committee investigating violence during the vetting process, has sent ripples through the local political landscape.

The FEC, in a press statement released yesterday, declared that Mr. Yarboi’s disqualification is rooted in his failure to meet the eligibility criteria outlined in article 41 (8) (b) of the NDC’s constitution. As a result, he is barred from participating in the upcoming parliamentary elections in Odododiodioo.

Adding another layer to the political drama, the FEC imposed joint surcharges on the other two aspirants, Alfred Nii Kotei Ashie and Emmanuel Nii Kotei Ashie. Their supporters were found to be responsible for the property damages that occurred at the vetting center, creating an atmosphere of chaos during the candidate selection process.

The committee’s findings pointed fingers at the supporters of these aspirants, alleging that they were the culprits behind the violence that marred the vetting proceedings.

In a gesture of accountability, the NDC issued a public apology to Akosua Octhere, a journalist who fell victim to the chaos, being manhandled during the vetting. The party pledged to work closely with her to cover all medical expenses incurred as a result of the unfortunate incident.

In response to the unfolding developments, the FEC has directed its election directorate to take immediate steps to organize the parliamentary primaries for the Odododiodioo Constituency. The move signals the party’s commitment to restoring order and conducting a transparent and fair selection process for its parliamentary candidates.
