Pru East NDC 'boils' over attempts to impose Power Minister

Tension is mounting among some incensed youth of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Pru East constituency, over allegations that the Brong Ahafo Regional Executives are scheming to ensure the incumbent Member of Parliament, Dr Kwabena Donkor, contest unopposed in the party’s upcoming parliamentary primaries.

The youth claim the party leadership have purposed to disqualify an aspirant Fuseini Musah, who is likely to unseat the incumbent MP, who is also the Minister for Power.

Musah Abattoir, who speaks on behalf of the enraged youth in an interview with Kasapa News, maintained that Dr Donkor has done very little to ensure development in the area, as he hardly visits the area.

Furthermore, they assert that even when he returns to the area, his poor human relations makes it difficult for the constituents to approach him; a situation they claim will not auger well for the growth of the party, hence their insistence on a level ground for all aspirants.

“We’ve told the party our peace of mind. If it dares go ahead and disqualify Fuseini Musah, the party will pay dearly for that single action as we’ll not hesitate to vote against the NDC. The party has always won this seat but if the executives ban Fuseini Musah, then they should forget about retaining the seat come 2016 election.

However, responding to the allegation, the Deputy Regional Secretary, Nyakpaab Peter refuted the claim by the youth.

According to him, the Regional Executives have no such intention of wrongfully disqualifying any candidate. He said the executives have resolved to give each contestant equal opportunities as they contest for the coveted seat.
