Yendi: NPP supporters threaten to disrupt internal election

According to reports, the confusion between the party chairman and the area's MP, Farouk Aliu Mahama, over the removal of certain names from the register has prompted some party executives to threaten to disrupt the process if the MP's purported voters register is used in the upcoming constituency elections.

Tamimu Abdul Hamid, the deputy Nasara coordinator for Yendi has called on the national executives of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to come to the rescue of the party in light of the growing tension over the alleged elimination of some names from the internal party register.

Speaking to Asaase News, Abdul Hamid said: “It will surprise you to know 70% of the 2020 campaign team members of the party in the Yendi constituency led by notable personalities are against the purported album… This is a clear indication that the said album is a recipe for disaster.”

“We, therefore, call on the leadership of the party to avail themselves and stop this unjust. We have communicated the injustice by the MP to the constituency but hasn’t been addressed by the party conclusively. This is against the party’s principles especially now that the party is breaking the 8,” he added.

Disruption

According to reports, the confusion between the party chairman and the Member of Parliament for Yendi, Farouk Aliu Mahama, over the removal of certain names from the register has prompted some party executives to threaten to disrupt the process if the MP’s purported voters register is used in the upcoming constituency elections.

Abubakar Sadique, NPP chairman for Yendi has said he will resist any attempt to impose the album on the constituency.

“We need to come out in our numbers to protect the constituency. We are saying ‘no’ today and tomorrow to the album, and if they make a mistake and bring that album to the election centre we will resist.”

“I won’t sit down for my opponent to beat me, I won’t agree. We have all decided to maintain the old polling station, why did they remove 123 names from the album. I won’t sit down for him to cheat me, No, over my dead body,” he said.

The party executives also presented a petition to Ahmed Abubakari, the Yendi municipal chief executive

Abubakari urged the group to remain calm and not to take the law into their hands.

“Dialogue is the only way we will be able to break the 8, we can’t break the 8 in disunity,” he said.
