Seven National Democratic Congress (NDC) Ward Coordinators in Gomoa Central have been suspended for choosing Kwame A Plus over their own party’s Parliamentary Candidate for the 2024 elections.
The Seven, at a press conference on Monday, January 22, 2024, called on the party’s leadership to replace the party’s PC, Kwame Dean Yawson with Kwame Asare Obeng, also known as A Plus.
According to them, their current PC is unmarketable and might lose the 2024 elections against incumbent New Patriotic Party MP, Naana Eyiah. They feel A Plus, running as an independent candidate, has a stronger chance of capturing the Gomoa Central seat.
The seven coordinators, including the constituency communication officer, have since been suspended awaiting further inquiry into the situation.
In an interview with Citi News, the party’s Deputy Constituency Secretary in Gomoa Central, Emmanuel Eshun, condemned the ward coordinators’ actions and stated that the allegations about the party’s PC, Kwame Dean Yawson not being marketable are false.
“It was unfortunate to hear that some ward coordinators are misbehaving. As constituency executives, we disassociate ourselves from what they did. The party met today and invited the individuals who were involved in the act. The seven ward coordinators involved in the act have been asked to step aside. The constituency communication officer Carlos Anokye has also been asked to step aside until investigations are completed.
“We have subsequently informed the regional party executives about the issue. The allegations that our candidate is not marketable are false. We don’t know where they got their data from, but what we know as constituency executives is that our candidate is winning the 2024 election,” he said.
