Convention People’s Party (CPP) Parliamentary Candidate for Sagnerigu in
Election 2012, has threatened legal action against the Party for imposing a candidate
on the people.
He said the CPP had put aside the Party’s
Constitution and imposed Madam Issah Zeliya, an Assembly Woman for the
Sagnerigu Electoral area to contest the 2016 elections on the CPP ticket, which
he described as unfair and unconstitutional.
He said that the Party’s Executives in
Sagnarigu, have stabbed him in the back by nominating Madam Zelia as
“I will use all legal means including the
court for the right thing to be done,” he warned.
Mr Suhuyini who was addressing a news
conference in Tamale said the nomination of Madam Zeliya was illegal and
unconstitutional because “Currently she is a card bearing member of the NDC in
the constituency but not a card bearing member of the CPP”.
He said Madam Zeliya participated and voted in
the NDC parliamentary primary in November last year in Sagnarigu and questioned
why the CPP should impose her on the constituents.
He said Madam Zeliya is also an Assembly Woman
of Sagnarigu electoral area and has since not resigned from her position, which
makes her unqualified.
Mr Suhuyini said the Party Executives in
Sagnarigu have elected Madam Zeliya without any consultations or pass through
He said he has been a devoted and committed
CPP member since 1996.
Madam Zeliya, told the Ghana News Agency in an
interview that she used to be a card bearing member of the ruling NDC but she
resigned to join the CPP.
“Politics is about where your service is
needed and where you would be in a better position to serve your people” she
She said the CPP monitored her activities as
an Assembly woman and came in for her to contest.
