Some governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) delegates in the Juaben Constituency of the Ashanti Region have invoked curses on the national executives of the party for disqualifying their preferred candidate from contesting in the parliamentary primaries.
The National Executive Council (NEC) of the party, according to the aggrieved delegates who spoke to Kumasi FM’s Elisha Adarkwah, disqualified Mr Francis Owusu Achiaw, their preferred candidate and another aspirant without any tangible reason, to pave the way for the incumbent MP, Ama Pomah, to go unopposed.
The delegates, numbering over 200, do not understand why Mr Francis Owusu Achiaw has been disqualified because, according to them, he successfully got vetted in Kumasi.
Unhappy with the circumstances of the disqualification, the delegates wore red armbands and marched to a river called “Asuo Abena” located at Nobowam in the constituency with schnapps and a sheep to invoke curses on anyone who was involved in disqualifying their candidate especially, Mr F.F. Anto, the first national vice-chairman of the party.
