Kwamena Duncan surprised at ‘curses’ invoked by NPP supporters

The Central Regional Minister, Kwamena Duncan has asked aggrieved members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to use the appropriate mechanism in dealing with their grievances.

He bemoaned a recent development in the party where some NPP members rained curses on executives for disqualifying their preferred candidates; saying that is not the nature of the NPP.

Some party members, a few days ago, undertook various forms of protest over reports that their preferred aspirant had been disqualified.

Armed with eggs and bottles of Schnapps, some of the agitators carried placards and called out the names of some people who were on the vetting committee and invoked curses on them. 

Expressing surprise at the act, Mr Duncan during a panel discussion on Peace FM  asked executives of the party “not to take it lightly”.

He also urged party members not to tarnish the image of President Akufo-Addo and give ‘ammunition’ to the opposition party.

All is set for the parliamentary primaries of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), slated for Saturday, June 20, 2020, to elect candidates for the remaining 168 constituencies for the upcoming elections.

The primaries will be held in constituencies where the party has its sitting Members of Parliament (MP), to complete the selection of candidates to represent the party in the elections.

As the party goes through this crucial national exercise, the NPP Belgium chapter extended its good wishes to the parliamentary aspirants and entreated them and delegates to respect the rules of engagement.

In a statement signed by the chapter secretary, Mr. S. D. Oduro admonished the national executives and the Election Committee to ensure fairness and transparency during the electoral process.

“We entreat all delegates to vote for the best candidate, one who is bold, decisive and visionary,”  the statement stated.

“Most importantly one who is more appealing to the generality of Ghanaians and also who can unify the whole constituency.

It is also prudent however that we elect candidates who will sell the core message of the party,” it noted.
