NPP Race: Nine Aspirants Disappointed In National Council For Dismissing Petition To Centralize August 26 Congress1 min read
The former Member Of Parliament for Manhyia North, Collins Owusu Amankwah says the nine aspirants who petitioned the National Council of the party to centralize the August 26 congress are highly disappointed in the National Council for dismissing their petition.
The nine flagbearer hopefuls excluding Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia argued that a centralized election would be more efficient and transparent.
They insisted that plans to allow only 900 delegates to vote at the regional level do not sit well with them.
However, the National Council at a crunch meeting on Thursday, July 20, 2023, rejected the petition resolving to implement what is in the party’s constitution.
Addressing journalists, General Secretary of the NPP, Justin Koduah said the party will go ahead with its planned decentralised election.
Hon. Collins Owusu Amankwah in an interview on the Ama Ghana Morning Show on Time FM, he said he is equally disappointed in the National Council.
He bemoaned that it is worrisome for the National Council to reject the views of the nine aspirants.
The former Manhyia North Lawmaker cried when he recalled that he was hated for nothing after some people were able to investigate that he voted against Akufo-Addo during the 2014 congress.
