Nana Akomea, a prominent New Patriotic Party (NPP) member, has asked Alan Kyeremanten’s campaign team not to use the media as their first port of call if they have any complaints about the forthcoming National Delegates’ Conference.
According to the Managing Director of the State Transport Company (STC), the party has established a system to address any potential problems.
Therefore, Nana Akomea said on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem, it’s crucial for the teams to use and exhaust all internal procedures instead of turning to the media as their first port of contact.
“It is an internal party process, and it is not everything we need to come out and let the public know, and we are even disgracing the party. They should have dealt with the internal mechanisms,” he urged.
Nana Akomea made this statement in response to irregularities that Mr. Kyerematen’s campaign team claimed to have found on the list of delegates for the forthcoming Special Electoral College on August 26.
In the Upper East, Central, and Volta Regions, the campaign team highlighted the names of four deceased people, of whom two have been replaced and two are still included on the register.
In response to the development, Nana Akomea stated he didn’t see any reason for concern.
“It may be their style to always come out in public, but it is not the best, so they should pull the brakes. It is just about three or four names and that does not warrant this public outburst.
“I thought it was about 200 out of the 900 names in the register. It is because of such things that we have been given the register, so we don’t have to fight over this,” he appealed.
Aspirants have been warned not to tamper with the election procedure or the systems set up to ensure a fair and transparent election by the NPP National Election Committee.
Additionally, the committee has warned that it will deal with any candidate who approaches the press without resorting to it.
