Five thousand aggrieved members of the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) in the New Edubiase Constituency in the Ashanti region have vowed to vote skirt and blouse in the December polls.
The aggrieved members have revealed that they will not vote for the party’s parliamentary candidate, Abdul Salam Adams unless the leadership of the party removes him.
Speaking at a presser at New Edubiase, the group averred that if the party fails to change Abdul Salam Adams, they will be forced to vote for the incumbent Member of Parliament and a Deputy Minister of Food and Agriculture, George Boahen Oduro.
They have accused the leadership of the party of circumventing the party laid down rules and imposed Abdul Salam Adams on them.
They say the candidate has been imposed on the nine hundred and thirty-six (936) delegates of the NDC in the constituency who should have been given the chance to vote for a preferred candidate in spite of several calls on the leadership to adhere to due process before Mr Abdul Salam’s acclamation last year.
“As a group, we have pondered thoroughly over the misunderstanding that has engulfed the party in the constituency and decided to do the honourable thing considering article 46 of the NDC Constitution and its implications.
“In light of this, the group deems it highly to stay away from the party to enable them re-launch and embark the journey of skirt and blouse that was born four years ago (2016) in the New Edubiase Constituency which saw our first and ever lost of the parliamentary seat”.
