The office of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) at Nuaso Korlenya in the Lower Manya constituency was in the afternoon of Saturday February 11 locked up by a group which calls itself Concerned NDC Branch Executives and Members.

Atsu Culture, the spokesperson of the group, told reporters the action was in response to the failure of national and regional executives to act on its request for some constituency executives to be suspended.

He said the executives pocketed monies belonging to polling agents and prompters during the recent elections, paying them only GHS100 of the budgeted GHS200.

According to him, even after the party's national chairman, Mr Kofi Portuphy, intervened and ordered the MP, Ebenezer Okletey Terlabi, to pay the polling agents within two weeks, the MP still refused to make payment.

The group raised concerns that the party office had been disconnected due to failure to pay electricity bills for several months while the party had defaulted on the rent for its office.
