Some NPP youth in the Kwabre East Constituency have locked the party’s office located in Mamponteng in the Ashanti Region.
According to sources, the action of the youth was necessitated by the disqualification of one Lawyer Anthony Osei Poku from the NPP Parliamentary aspirant contest for the constituency.
The angry youth showing their displeasure at a press conference held in Mamponteng stated that, some of the constituency executives and some regional executives are pushing the agenda to allow the incumbent Mp, Hon. Francisca Oteng Mensah to go unopposed.
Addressing the media, the spokesperson for the youth, Kofi Agyapong Bismark said, they have seen the list of the constituencies that have been cleared by the National Executive Council of the NPP to allow contest in the various constituencies except Kwabre East.
They are therefore “sending a strong signal to their party leaders; should they try to impose a candidate on them” – He said.
Ending the press conference, the leader of the youth led them to invoke curses on anybody that has anything to do with the supposed illegalities.
