The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said its investigations reveal that its flagbearer for the 2012 elections, Nana Akufo Addo was prevented from entering the Koforidua Midwifery College per the express instructions of the Regional Director of the Ghana Health Service.
The flagbearer of the NPP was prevented from entering the Midwifery colleague in the Eastern Region to deliver a talk to the students as part of his 'Restore Hope Tour'.
The First Vice Chairman of the NPP in the region, Alhaji Umar Bobinga told Citi News the party was not allowed to use the premises even though they had served notice several days back.
He said 'we know by the Constitution of Ghana, we practice politics in tertiary institutions, we sent our application to the principal of the school and he accepted seven clear days before Nana's arrival.
'Yesterday, around 9 o'clock we had information from the midwifery school that there is a directive from above that they shouldn't usher Nana Addo into the campus."
He added: "We went on further to ask the principal, she said we know she is under somebody. This instruction was carried and communicated to her through the regional director of health service.'
