Tension is brewing within the New Patriotic Party (NPP) at Bantama in the Ashanti Region as some polling station executives complain of intimidation by constituency executives to flush some names out of the delegate’s album.
Mr Ebo Boison addressing the press last Friday alleged that ,the Constituency Chairman in the person of chairman Fiifi Mensah has been engineering ways to remove names perceived to be against him just to ensure some people to go unopposed in this year’s congress.
We have been subjected to serious intimidation by Chairman Fiifi,” he said.
“Now five polling station executives have been hauled before Disciplinary Committee just because they do not side with the Chairman. If you are not with him, then they victimize you. This is what we are going through.”
Despite the thorough explanation by the Chairman, the polling station executive is of the view that Chairman Fiifi Mensah knows very well he might lose the upcoming constituency elections hence his resort to removing names from the delegate’s register to ensure his smooth sail.
But, he said, they have vowed to resist any attempts to disenfranchise some delegates for his parochial interests.
The aggrieved Bantama delegates further alluded that already some regional party executives have disclosed intentions to go every extent to ensure he sails through unopposed.
They believe what the Constituency Chairman has begun is a clear example of sabotaging the system for their interests.
Mr Ebo Boison , who seemed angry, told Broadcastergh.com that with this growing attitude of intimidation and perceived agenda, it may be very difficult to ‘break the eight’ in Bantama.
