Aflao (V/R), July 9, GNA - The Leadership of the Ketu South Constituency branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) says the Party is still united in the area and that there is no division among them as being peddled in certain quarters.
It said rumours being spread by certain elements and reported in some media, are fallacies being employed by opponents of the Party to mislead the public.
Speaking at a press conference at the Party's branch office at Aflao on Thursday, the Leadership denied that it skewed the primaries in favour of Mr Albert Zigah, a Transport Owner, who had 95 votes to beat four other candidates.
It said the voting process was free and fair, without any intimidation.
Mr Marcel Adotevi, Constituency Vice-Chairman, who was the spokesman for the Leadership said any attempt to taint the image of the Party in the constituency would not be countenanced.
He said the four other candidates, including Mr Charles Agbagedi, Mr Desky Ahedor, Mr Cyril Neku and Francis Dzineku had the opportunity to question Zigah's eligibility as a candidate from the vetting to the primaries.
Mr Adotevi said Mr Zigah, who holds a certificate in Administration and Management from GIMPA and that he is not a porter with the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) as being rumoured.
He appealed to any member of the Party, who has any grievances to pass them through the appropriate channels for redress. Present at the briefing were, Mr Ramond Avevor, Chairman; Mr Andreas Kwablavi, Secretary and Mr Seth Filson, Youth Organiser.
