The Northern Regional Executive Committee of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) will hold a crunch meeting later today May 8, 2017 to determine the fate of two constituency women orgainsers of the party as well as the Deputy Regional Women’s organizer Hajia Safia for allegedly breaching party rules.
Mynewsgh.com can report authoritatively that the three have been cited by the regional hierarchy of the party for attending a meeting called by the Minister of Gender and Social Protection Madam Afisa Otiko Djaba at the Modern City Hotel without recourse to party structures which amounts to wrongdoing.
According sources, Suraya the Tamale Central Constituency Women organizer of the party and her counterpart at Tamale South are being accused of violating party structures with the open endorsement of the Deputy Regional Women’s organizer by attending what has been described as an illegal meeting.
Northern Regional Chairman of the NPP Daniel Bugri Naabu, believes the meeting with Madam Otiko was meant to undermine his authority and therefore insists the three must face sanctions for their conduct.
The three were reported in a release after the disruption of a meeting with the party’s National Women Ograniser to have also accused the NPP chairman of peddling falsehood.
“We Constituency Women Organizers of the Northern Region described as lies being peddled by the Northern Regional Chairman of NPP Bugri Naabu.
The Gender Minister was in the region to represent the first Lady Mrs. Rebecca Akuffo Addo on the celebration of International Midwives day,being the national women organizer of NPP Madam Otiko Afisah Djaba decided to meet her women organizers.
We want to state categorically clear that the meeting was only for the the minister to thank her women for working very hard to achieve a resounding victory and moreover to assure us of her commitment to see to the welfare of the women.
We want to clear the air on the purported lies in the news by the regional chairman that the minister came to introduce school feeding coordinators to them.
We are solidly behind our Gender Minister and therefore we will not agree with any individual who will undermine and disrespect her. The general public is therefore informed that the meeting was a successful one”
