The Concerned Youth for the New Patriotic Party NPP in the Northern Region have called on the leadership of the party in the region to ensure the nomination forms are available to all interested persons in the region to enable them contest for the polling station positions.
The group said this at a press conference held at the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium today Thursday, February 24, 2022.
“In the case of Northern Region, it turned chaotic. And Zogbeli, there was a serious pandemonium. The polling station elections that was supposed to be conducted in a peaceful, transparent, free and fair manner has been muddied by the incompetent, diabolical and corrupt Chairman Samba and his team”, the group told the journalists.
“The Samba team is hoarding the forms to prevent persons who are not their loyalists from picking same to contest for the polling station executive positions (which we are asking them to make available)”, they added.
Since the party opened nomination on February 19, there has been agitations across the country by supporters of the NPP in various constituencies, who feel the incumbent executives are making moves to retain their positions.
This led to series of press conferences by the supporters in Northern Region ; Nanton and Tolon to be precise.
While some of them are accusing the regional executives, the rest are blaming their counterparts at the constituency levels for the attempts to deny them the opportunity to constest.
