Agona East NDC protests "skirt and blouse" voting

Agona Nsaba (C/R),
Aug. 15, GNA – Executives of the Agona East Constituency of the National
Democratic Congress (NDC) have expressed concern about photographs of President
John Mahama and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate embossed
on some posters in the constituency.

Mr Francis Duodu
Addo, the District Chief Executive (DCE), said the situation had created worry
and acrimony among party supporters.

Speaking to the
media at Agona Nsaba, Mr Addo said the party was highly disappointed by the
move aimed at creating avenues for the opposition NPP parliamentary candidate,
Mr James Owusu-Barnes, to win the elections.

He said the posters
are meant to create division, hatred and instability for the NDC adding that
executives would never sit unconcerned for that to happen.

Mr Addo said more
than nine posters had been sighted at Agona Nsaba, Agona Duakwa and other towns
in the constituency with the motive to preach “skirt and blouse” voting.

“An investigation
team had been set up to unravel the mystery behind this and anyone found
culpable would be dealt with. The culprit would be referred to the disciplinary
committee of the party,” he said.

The DCE said the
action was not commensurate with the NDC Constitution and would not be
countenanced by the constituency, regional and national executives of the
party.

He said there was
absolute peace and unity in the Agona East NDC after the primaries and
cautioned that no one should bring divisions among the party members.

Alhaji Ibrahim
Jabiru, the Agona East Constituency Chairman, said an emergency meeting had
been held to find a lasting solution to the problem and

warned that stiffer
punishment would be meted out to anyone found to have printed such posters.

The Chairman said
the executives and supporters were working hard to enable President Mahama to
win convincingly during the 2016 polls.
