However, twenty- seven persons out of the 33 who were vetted in the Bono Region to contest in the NPP Parliament Primaries have sailed through to contest in primaries in April.
Renowned Broadcast Journalist, Kojo Frimpong and the only female contesting in the Bono Region, Professor Tina Abrefa-Gyan who are both contesting in the Wenchi Constituency all sailed through.
The Bono Regional Communication Director of the NPP, Seth Asare Bediako in an interview with First1News said those who were disqualified would have the opportunity to present their petition to the National Appeals Committee to be headed by Mr. Mac Manu.
He indicated that those affected could submit their appeal by 13th and 14th of March 2020 to the National Appeals Parliamentary Committee which is expected to sit on the petitions they would receive by March 21, 2020.
