Sources within the Regional Executives confided in this portal that an emergency Regional Executive Committee meeting scheduled today Sunday 18th August, 2019 at the residence of Chairman Wontumi is set to announce the decision.
Some party supporters who are not enthused with plans by Chairman Wontumi and his cohorts to hijack the party and impose candidates on them, have vowed to resist his autocratic leadership.
Manafi Ibrahim has declined comment on the matter days after his vetting which went well awaiting the outcome before the primary at a later date.
Meanwhile, has described her suspension as bogus and a slap in the face of democracy orchestrated by the Regional Chairman who is gradually ruining the reputation of the party in the area
Ms Ndoma in a response to her suspension said “I find the decision as contained in the said letter of my indefinite suspension to be surprising and illegal” – she stated.
In her opinion, the suspension is part of what she described as a grand scheme to get her out of the competition. “I suspect my illegal indefinite suspension is all part of the grand scheme to obstruct me from contesting to become PC and believe it is a plot in accordance with your resolution to present your preferred candidates uncontested” – she alleged.
She insisted that she will continue to hold herself as constituency secretary of Ejura Sekyere-dumase. Per our independent checks, it appears she is not ready to badge to the pressure from the regional office of the party though she declined to comment on the matter.
