NPP Primaries: Western North Ready For Saturday's Election - Regional Secretary
The Executives of Western North Region branch of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) have put in place all the necessary measures and precautions to ensure the successful election of parliamentary candidates in three constituencies where the party has sitting Members of Parliament.
Mr Samuel Kofi Abiaw, the Regional Secretary, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency, said Veronica buckets, soaps, tissue paper and hand sanitizers would be provided at the various electoral areas to ensure delegates adhere to all protocols aimed at fighting COVID 19.
On the candidates, he said, Dr Kwaku Afriyie, Member of Parliament for Sefwi- Wiawso and Mr Alex Djonoboah Tetteh, Member of Parliament for Sefwi- Akontombra were going unopposed.
He said the two members of parliament would meet delegates at their various electoral areas for acclamation.
The Regional Secretary said there would, however, be voting at the Bibiani Anwhiaso Bekwai Constiuency which would be held at 36 electoral areas, adding that another electoral area would be created for constituency and council of patrons.
Mr Abiaw called on the rank and file of the party members to unite to ensure a resounding victory for the party in the December polls.
In a related development, Mr Christopher Addai, one of the aspirants in the Bibiani Anwhiaso Bekwai constituency primaries has withdrawn from the race on health grounds.
In this regard, Mr Kingsley Aboagye Gyedu, incumbent Member of Parliament and Western North Regional Minister, would battle it out with Mr Alfred Obeng Boateng former BOST Managing Director.
