Some aggrieved supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Subin constituency have locked up the party’s office.
The tension is as a result of the ongoing polling station elections at the Subin Constituency where the youth claimed some individuals have been disqualified from contesting and some names removed from the polling station album.
The angry NPP members clad in red armbands and chanting war songs stormed the premises with additional padlocks and a chain to carry out their act.
They accused their Member of Parliament for the area, Mr. Eugene Boakye of making the party unpopular and will not aid their quest to break the eight.
Some of the youth also threatened to invoke curses on anyone who dares to reopen the office if nothing is done to resolve the issue.
Some NPP faithful across the country have accused party executives of hiding forms in areas such as Kwadaso in the Ashanti Region where some NPP members locked up the constituency chairman last Saturday.
Similar agitations took place in the Akuapem South Municipality of the Eastern Region and Ningo-Prampram in the Greater Accra Region.
At Fomena in the Ashanti Region the youth accused party executives for engaging in preferential treatment of party members who are linked to the Independent Member of Parliament, Mr. Andrew Amoako Asiamah.
“We will not vote for the NPP in the next elections. We will vote for John Mahama because at least, he has built a modern hospital for us,” they stated.
They also painted the constituency party’s office with NDC party colors and pasted the posters of former President Mahama on the walls of the building.
“We are opposing the imposition of an independent candidate in the Fomena Constituency because the constitution of the party is not being followed strictly.
“Again, some party faithful who helped Nana Addo to win the general elections are being sidelined, and the party is rather favoring those in the camp of the Independent Member of Parliament for this area,” the angry youth stated.
