NPP Condemns Altercations During Parliamentary Primaries

Published

on


The New Patriotic Party in a statement has condemned issues of altercations which took place during their just ended parliamentary primaries.

A statement issued by National Chairman, Freddie Blay described the incidents as unacceptable and revealed investigations are underway.

“The party is already initiating moves to investigate them thoroughly and if necessary apply the appropriate sanctions. We must also discourage the unfortunate escalating occurrences of alleged influence-peddling and inducements across the board, acknowledging that these definitely constitute a threat to Ghana’s fledging and young democracy,” the statement read.

It asked all members of the party to close their ranks and focus on winning the 2020 elections.

Read the full statement below:

On behalf of the National Executive Committee of our party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP), I express my sincere appreciation to all contestants and delegates for their efforts in seeing to the successful organization of the just ended 2020 NPP Parliamentary Primaries conducted in most constituencies where we have NPP members of Parliament.

I also thank the officers of the Electoral Commission for yet again rising up to the occasion of supervising the elections in a fair and transparent manner.

We equally thank our friends from the media who have given comprehensive coverage and reportage and generated much interest in this year’s Primaries, even in the face of COVID 19 pandemic.

By all standards, the primaries have been a well-conducted and keenly contested one.

The contest has demonstrated the vibrancy and attractiveness of the NPP.

As we conclude this phase of our internal parliamentary elections, I will urge all contestants who won to be magnanimous in their victory celebrations and those who lost to be gracious in accepting their loses and personal setbacks, the NPP and our country Ghana remain the ultimate winners.

Those who may still have disagreements and complains with the process are encouraged to activate the Party’s laid down procedures for redress and reconciliation.

As a party, let us all endeavour to guard against giving ammunition to our opponents, for vicious and character assassinating attacks.

Reported cases of Altercations in a few polling stations are unacceptable and the party strongly condemns that.

The party is already initiating moves to investigate them thoroughly and if necessary apply the appropriate sanctions. We must also discourage the unfortunate escalating occurrences of alleged influence-peddling and inducements across the board, acknowledging that these definitely constitute a threat to Ghana’s fledging and young democracy.

Rather than dividing our ranks, I believe the successful outcome of this Parliamentary Primaries which has been in the spirit of family competition, friendly hostilities and sportsmanship, be used by all aspirants to energize the grassroots, mobilize our supporters for the compilation exercise of the EC’s new voters’ register and galvanize our energies towards the December polls.

Day in day out, the New Patriotic Party, continue to set new standards in confronting challenges with the development of our constitutional democracy. Indeed, we have demonstrated beyond doubt, that as a people, we can overcome the limitations this COVID 19 pandemic poses to our society and manage it in a manner that enables us to continue to carry out our constitutional privileges, economic activities and social lives.

Just as the President, H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo indicated, the NPP cannot let the good people of Ghana down after voting overwhelmingly for the party in the 2016 general elections.

The Ghanaian electorates have confidence in the visionary and exemplary leadership of the President and are largely convinced that the New Patriotic Party has what it takes to bring about prosperity and dignity to the good people of Ghana.

Therefore, our conduct and activities as party members must be geared towards sustaining that confidence.

Obviously, we must acknowledge that the president is delivering well on his mandate, however, we must bear in mind that we are not out of the woods yet.

The undoubting task of nation-building lies ahead of us and this is inextricably linked to our December 2020 national elections victory.

All in all, I sincerely thank you.

‘Hypocrite’ Chief Justice Should Rather Be Dragged To Disciplinary Committee, Not Ayine – NDC MP

Published

on


Lawmaker for Tamale Central, Ibrahim Murtala Mohammed has slammed the Chief Justice for dragging Bolgatanga East MP, Dominic Ayine to the disciplinary committee of the Ghana Legal Council for some comments made.

Speaking to Citi TV, Murtala Mohammed said the Chief Justice, Kwasi Anin Yeboah is guilty for the same purpose of which he had dragged Ayine to the GLC.

According to him, the Chief Justice had also participated in programmes that sought to attack a decision made by Justices of the Supreme Court on a specific case.

“The hypocrisy of the Chief Justice is telling. Just a few weeks before this petition, the Chief Justice participated in a similar political programme that was considered to be attacking a decision made by the Justices of the Supreme Court. The purpose [of the programme] was to challenge the decision of the Supreme Court. I am just exposing the hypocrisy- that he participated in a programme that sought to attack the decision of the Supreme Court in the Re: Akoto case,” Murtala Muhammed explained.

Dr Ayine at a CDD roundtable discussion on ‘Presidential Election Petitions and their Impact on Africa’s Democracy’ reportedly questioned the independence of Ghana’s judiciary.

Dr Ayine said: “I expected the Supreme Court to apply faithfully the rules of procedure to – in terms of adducing evidence – prove the petitioner’s case and so on. What we saw was a Supreme Court that was constantly putting hurdles in the way of the petitioner in terms of adducing evidence to prove the petitioner’s case.

However, the statement did not go down well with the Chief Justice, Anin-Yeboah who referred to the General Legal Council for investigation comments made by the former deputy Attorney General.
