Baring any last-minute intervention, the parliamentary candidate of the NDC in the Effutu constituency, Lawyer Victor Yankson, will not be contesting on the ticket of the party.
Victor Yankson, this portal understands is unhappy with the level of infighting from his own party executives hence his decision to step down.
Per a report sighted on peacefmonline.com, the candidate has already written a letter to the General Secretary of the NDC, detailing reasons why he wants to step down.
The report continues that the decision by the duly elected Parliamentary candidate is premised on the uncooperative attitude of the constituency’s executives and council of elders ever since he was elected to lead the party.
The National Democratic Congress(NDC) in the Effutu Constituency in the Central Region has been in turmoil for some time now.
The turmoil stems from a struggle over the party’s parliamentary candidature.
Even though the NDC has an elected parliamentary candidate, there are attempts by pro-NPP James Kofi Annan, to torpedo him and lead the party into the 2020 election.
