Kade NPP MP raises red flags over aspirants

The NPP Member of Parliament for Kade in the Eastern region has accused party executives of sidestepping requirements for contesting parliamentary primaries.

Ofosu Asamoah alleged that two out of four aspirants contesting the constituency parliamentary primaries were not card-bearing members of the party and therefore were unqualified to contest the primaries.

He said regional party executives were aware of the incident but were silent on the matter.

He told Joy News the development was against the constitution of the party.

The Eastern Regional Chairman of the NPP, Samuel Yaw Annoh however, said he was yet to receive any petition on that allegation.

He said the vetting committee cleared all aspirants after thorough deliberations between the national, regional and constituency executives.

Meanwhile, the General Secretary of the Party, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie has said the nationwide primaries will be held on April 30.
