No executives have resigned in the Eastern Region
Reports claiming that some thirteen constituency executives of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) at Akwatia in the Eastern Region have resigned from their positions, are not true and should be disregarded, Prince Yaro, Election Committee chair for the party in Akwatia, has said.
The reports claimed that the executives resigned citing unfair treatment by former Member of Parliament for the area, Baba Jamal and the party’s National Vice Chairperson, Anita De Soso as reasons for their disenchantment
According to Henry Boakye Yiadom, Constituency Vice Chairman, notwithstanding their sacrifices and efforts for the party over the years, they are being accused falsely and threatened with suspension.
Their decision follows a disagreement between them and Ms. De Soso at a meeting to resolve disagreements surrounding the party's branch elections in the constituency.
Mr Jamal and some followers petitioned the party to suspend them, accusing them of contributing to his defeat during the 2016 parliamentary elections.
Mr Yiadom, popularly known as Okoyo, said the disgruntled executives are not happy with the conduct of Ms. De Soso.
But Yaro told Accra News’ Naa Astei Oduro on Wednesday, 2 May that: “As a part, we haven’t received any official resignation letter from those executives, and, so, we are not aware of their resignation.
“As far as we are concerned, they have not resigned, and, so, we want the general public to disregard the reports making rounds in the media.”
