The NPP's constitution has been brutally maimed by the Ashanti regional executives led by Wontumi.
PYA has been raising concerns and red flags about the conduct of the party's primaries in the orphan constituencies but nobody listened to us.
The bad press the party has seen in the last few weeks are as a result of the reckless abandonment of the party's constitution in the conduct of the primaries.
Not too long ago, REC claimed it had passed a resolution to bar everyone from contesting in the party's primaries in the orphan constituencies apart from individuals preferred by REC. This decision which has no constitutional basis was flatly ignored by two gallant patriots - Abdul Manaf of Asawase and Gifty Ndoma of Ejura.
The duo were obstructed from picking nomination forms both at the constituency and regional levels in a blatant disregard for the election guidelines issued by the national party. This forced the duo to pick and file nominations at the national level.
Following that we heard of the suspension of the Ejura secretary and just yesterday, Abdul Manaf was served a similar decision. Wontumi is so bent on bending the constitution to the advantage of his apparatchiks much so that, he failed to pause and analyse the repercussions of this action he has sponsored. One doesn't need to be a Jewish Prophet, to see through the conspiracies behind the bogus suspensions of the duo.
PYA is calling on all well-meaning party youths in Asawase to stage an insurrection. The injustice against Manaf will not end with him - every party person is at the risk of being subjected to a similar treatment if we don't speak up today. Fight injustice wherever you find it before it gets to your doorstep.
To this end, PYA lends full support to the youth of Asawase who are planning to hit the streets. Kudos to them!
