Members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Tro-bu Constituency have protested the disqualification of Edward Lincoln Addo from the party’s upcoming parliamentary primaries in the Constituency.
They have therefore sent a petition to President Nana Akufo-Addo, registering their displeasure over the disqualification.
Reading out the petition to the media on Thursday, May 21, 2020, a polling station Executive within the Constituency, Albert Assumadu, says the constituents were requesting for the President’s intervention to reverse the disqualification decision.
He says it was key for the President to act in order to prevent aparthy fomenting among party members during the 2020 parliamentary and presidential elections.
He stated that they will support any candidate who emerges victorious in the primaries through a democratic process and not through disqualification.
He expressed disappointment in the Greater Accra vetting committee for disqualifying Edward Lincoln Addo.
He recounted that the ‘skirt and blouse’ reared its ugly in the Constituency in 2020, with then presidential candidate Akufo-Addo garnering 50,000 and the incumbent MP managing 48,000 votes.
He said if care is not take the NPP could lose the Tro-bu seat.
