NPP Conference: Akufo Addo won’t vote – Mustapha Hamid

The Office of Nana Akufo Addo has indicated that Nana Akufo Addo has no plans of voting at the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) delegates’ conference in Tamale on Saturday.

Though Section C (2) of the NPP’s constitution disqualifies Nana Akufo Addo from voting at the conference, the camp of National Chairman aspirant Paul Afoko said they had cited a delegates’ list with Nana Addo and his running mate, Dr. Bawurmia’s names included.

Mr. Afoko’s camp subsequently wrote a letter to the elections committee of the party registering their protest.

But speaking to Citi News, aide to Nana Addo Mustapha Hamid said his boss had no plans of voting on Saturday.

Making a reference, he stated that “In 2010 in Kumasi, Akuffo Addo didn’t vote and wasn’t interested in voting and hasn’t told anyone he is interested in voting at the Tamale conference.”

Meanwhile, the NPP has rejected a call from Mr. Afoko for a meeting with all candidates to deal with the issue before Saturday’s conference.

Director of Elections Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah says the Elections Committee will not meet any candidate ahead of the conference.

“A request is being made of election committee to meet on Friday before the election. Please know that we have a mandate for organisaing election and we are doing that on time. Elections committee I can tell you on Authority cannot and will not meet candidates,” he insisted
