Some Branch Executives of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Techiman South Constituency are calling on the party’s executives to withdraw their 2020 election petition from court.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate for the 2020 election is in court to challenge the results of the election.
Mr. Christopher Bayere claims he won the elections but the results were manipulated by officials of the Electoral Commission in favour of NPP’s Martin Adjei Korsah who is now the Member of Parliament for the Constituency.
But addressing the press, NDC Branch executives led by one Kojo Agyei indicated that the party is wasting time in court when there is turmoil and misunderstanding in the party that needs to be handled.
To the Executives, it will be wise on the part of the Parliamentary Candidate to withdraw the case from court and rather focus on building the unity of the party for the 2024 election because the continuous focus on the court case will weaken the ranks of the NDC in the constituency.
“Why I’m addressing the press is that there was some misunderstandings result of 2020 election. Somethings happened at the collation centre and as a result, the issues to been sent to High Court. But how things are going at the court we are very worried. We the branch executives are really worried that apart from the court case, there are issues within the party that needs attention but have been relegated.”
“Ben laden has a problem with Mosquito, Constituency Chairman has a problem with the regional chairman, so our plan as branch executives is that we are pleading with our leaders to look at our toil in 2020, look at the misunderstandings that exist from the 2020 election and withdraw the court case so that we rather focus on the party to bring unity so that the NDC can face 2024. They should call Ben Laden and Christopher Bayere who are in court at the Wenchi High Court so that they forget the case.”
“There is an issue between the party’s electoral officer Ben laden and Chairman Nuhu which needs to be addressed. So we are pleading with the Regional and National executives to make it a point to ensure that these issues are addressed,” he said.
