NPP Delegates Conference: Sir John Almost Lynched?

Voting at the National delegates Conference ongoing at the Tamale Sports Stadium has ended and counting will soon begin.

The Electoral Commission is currently arranging the ballot boxes from the various regions according to the various positions being contested for and then afterwards counting will begin.

General Secretary of the NPP, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, popularly called Sir John is said to have joined delegates in their queue and vehemently canvassing for votes.

The delegates warned him to stop campaigning or otherwise they will “beat him” at the conference ground.

Some of the delegates who realized Sir John was still in the queue said it was unfair to the rest of the candidates and almost lynched the NPP kingpin but for the timely intervention of the police.

According to Peace FM’s reporter, Kwabena Ntow, the police had to escort Sir John out of the Stadium to avoid further attacks.

EC Secretary Stopped From Voting

Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Election Committee (EC) Secretary has been stopped from casting his vote at the ongoing Delegates Congress at Tamale, the Northern regional Capital.

According to PEACE FM’s reporter at the Congress grounds, Emmanual Kofi Duah, the NPP EC Committee Secretary was prevented from voting after a section of the polling station agents protested against his participation because he is not a delegate.

This, according to the report, nearly marred what has so far been described by many as a smooth conference. It took the intervention of the police personnel and other leading members of the elephant fraternity to restore order.

“….a senior police officer and Lawyer Nana Yaw Osei had to intervene, to interpret the party’s constitution and also impress on Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah not to vote since the Constitution does not allow him to” the reporter stated.

Meanwhile, calm has been restored at the Tamale Sports Stadium, where the NPP Delegates Congress is being held. Voting is expected to end in the next few hours.
