Aboagye Didieye will get only one vote – Allotey Jacobs

Central Regional Chairman of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) has advised the Member of Parliament for Afram Plains North who is also aspiring to be the National Organizer of the party to throw in the towel.

He said Emmanuel Aboagye Didieye has lost his political clout even at the constituency level hence will suffer the humiliation of his life if he goes ahead to contest the national elections if the court rules in his favour.

The Afram Plains North MP is praying the court to stop the NDC from holding its December 20th National Delegates Congress to elect new national executives.

Aboagye Didieye argued that the party’s Vetting Committee unfairly disqualified him from the race he is more likely to emerge winner.

But Allotey Jacobs on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem Tuesday, scoffed at the seeming confidence of the legislator.

“Aboagye Didieye is just going to add to the numbers; he will get one vote because as an MP he automatically becomes a delegate,” he added.

The NDC Central Regional Chairman said the MP is running away from his own shadows because “he knows he will lose the parliamentary primaries”.

He indicated that the competition is between Deputy General Secretary, Kofi Adams and incumbent, Yaw Boateng Gyan so “he [Didieye] will laugh at the wrong side of his month”.

Allotey Jacobs maintained that in spite of the court injunction, the congress in Kumasi will go ahead as planned.
