Bugri Naabu investigates Alan's 4 votes in Northern Region

My attention has been drawn to a report by Citi Fm on my comments during a visit by youth organizers of the Northern region to my home today. In those comments, I am reported as saying that I would institute a committee to investigate the eight people who swore by the Bible and Quran but did not vote for Nana Akufo-Addo in the just ended Special Delegates Congress.

I would like to place on record that my light hearted attempt at humour has been misconstrued and in that regard I unconditionally withdraw those comments which were meant to be in jest. I have no authority to set up a committee to investigate who did or did not vote for a particular candidate and so no such committee can or will be set up.

Furthermore, no oaths were sworn to coerce people to vote for Nana Akufo-Addo. I am a democrat and part of a party that believes in democracy. We believe in the right of every individual to exercise their democratic rights.

Daniel Bugri Naabu
Northern Region Chairman
New Patriotic Party
