The Ashanti regional Police command has dispatched officers to the Ashanti regional head office of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) over fears of clashes between some agitating members of the party in Asawase and regional executives.
Angry supporters of parliamentary aspirant hopeful Masawudu Mubarack have stormed the regional office at Asokwa as he submits his nomination form but the office has been locked, a move they suspect is aimed at frustrating their candidate.
According to an executive member of the party, who spoke with Ultimate FM’s Isaac Justice Bediako, on condition of anonymity, the executives of the party at a meeting decided not to sell the forms to him because he is under suspension for violating the constitution ahead of the upcoming parliamentary primaries.
Meanwhile, the angry concerned Youth of Asawase NDC at a news conference in Kumasi warned they will consider defecting to the NPP if their preferred aspirant hopeful is blocked from picking nomination forms both at the constituency and the regional office of the party.
Salihu Fatiu, spokesperson for the group called on the national executives of the party to order the constituency chairman Alhaji Mutum, regional secretary Kwame Zu and Isham Alhassan to abstain from all activities concerning the Asawase parliamentary primaries.
