The General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu, says the party’s national office is opening its doors to persons who feel victimized and are unable to pick nomination forms at their constituencies.
His call comes midst accusations that some constituency executives of the New NPP are stifling the hopes of some aspirants who want to contest the party’s upcoming primaries.
“We have just about three days to ago. What we are saying is that henceforth from today [Tuesday] from 7 am to 6 pm, our national office will be opened and we will be available,” Mr. Boadu said.
But it comes with a condition.
“Anyone who comes with evidence of having being denied [the forms] at the constituency and the regional level, we will deal with the situation,” he told the media in Accra.
The Party opened nominations for its internal contest to select candidates that will become lawmakers in Ghana’s eighth Parliament.
However, some aspirants are sweaty to get the forms to officially announce their candidature for the internal race, which in the Ashanti Region is the main race to become an MP.
