The Greater Accra Regional Organizer of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) is proposing party members fomenting trouble in the Klottey Korle constituency be “dismissed” from the party.
According to Anthony Nukpenu, the suit and counter-suits against the parliamentary candidate, Dr. Zenator Rawlings could scuttle the party’s agenda for a landslide victory in 2016.
His call comes after incumbent MP for the area, Nii Armah Ashitey and aspirant, Nii John Coleman filed a suit praying the court to declare the elections null and void.
They are also demanding Dr. Rawlings be disqualified from the race because she is not a registered voter and card bearing member of the NDC.
But Anthony Nukpenu on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen Programme Friday called the bluff of the two plaintiffs.
He said Dr. Zenator Rawlings is not an “outcast” thus will not allow “selfish” people to treat her like an outsider.
“I don’t think this people are true NDC people. I suggest they be dismissed from the party because we are focused on winning the elections and these things are drawing us back,” he fumed.
Anthony Nukpenu stressed that the delegates in the constituency have chosen their candidate and no court can overturn it.
He advised the incumbent MP and his colleague to go independent if they think the party is not treating them fairly.
“The NDC is not the property of anyone so if you [Nii Armah] don’t get it, you can go independent. You can’t continue to toil with our chances of winning the elections,” he stated.
The NDC Regional Organizer expressed shock at the conduct of the incumbent MP who hitherto has been the major beneficiary in the constituency.
Anthony Nukpenu said he will personally lead a campaign to ensure Nii Armah Ashitey and Nii Coleman are dismissed from the party if they pursue the court case.
“We need to take a decisive action to deter people from going to court to distract our agenda in 2016”
