We will burn the car and hijack the party office if elections are not conducted, NPP members warn

There is an uneasy calm in two key constituencies of the ruling New Patriotic Party in the Ashanti region (NPP). Bantama and Oforikrom are the two constituencies.

These are the most recent constituencies to be rocked by internal election controversies. The party is trying to play it safe in their world bank, but the problems aren't going away.

Oforikrom constituency

Members in the Oforikrom constituency are furious with their constituency executives, whom they accuse of attempting to retain certain polling station executives.

They claim that their leaders are attempting to handpick people for polling stations and threaten to burn the party car and lock up the party office if the executives carry out their intended plan.

Mohammed Lameen, who spoke to Citi TV on behalf of his colleagues, stated that they want the election to be held within the time frame set by the national executives.

When a Citi TV correspondent contacted the executives of the Oforikrom constituency, they responded that they were working hard to set a date for the election.

Bantama Constituency

Members of the Bantama constituency who are dissatisfied with the recent election are calling for it to be annulled and new elections held.

They claimed that the constituency executives fraudulently printed party cards and gave them to non-party members in order for them to vote.

They claimed that the use of cards is strange to the party and violates the party's constitution, indicating that all members on the party register in the constituency should be allowed to vote. They say they are not afraid to be contested by others, but want a level playing field for all and dare the constituency executives that if they felt they did so well, then they should not be afraid to come down and campaign for their re-election.
