Ashanti Regional NPP executive found serving as NDC ward chairman – NPP man alleges



A Constituency Executive of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Ashanti Region has been revealed to be serving as an opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Chairman for a ward in the same constituency.

The incident reported in the Fomena Constituency indicates the Treasurer of the NPP in the Fomena Constituency is also a Ward Chairperson of the opposition.

The revelation was brought to light by former Constituency Chairman of Fomena Akwasi Nti who said the last Constituency election conducted was shambolic.

“The situation is such that can you imagine the constituency Treasurer of NPP is also serving as a Ward Chairperson of the NDC? Yes, I am telling you on authority,” Akwasi Nti said on a local radio station in the Ashanti Regional capital Kumasi.

Nti said the situation is not limited to only the Treasurer but several other sensitive roles in the NPP Fomena Constituency.

He said when invited he will be able to provide proof of the allegations he is making.

In 2022, the NPP held a delegates conference in Fomena to elect new party executives despite an interim injunction against the exercise.

The election took place at the St. Hubert Roman Catholic Church at Akrotiri where about 356 party delegates elected their preferred candidates for all 10 constituency executive positions, including that of the chairmanship slot.

The treasurer elected at that event was one Afia Nuamah who beat her closest contender Bright Abu by a single vote.

The EC was not available to supervise the elections at Akrokerri due to a Court issue.

The election started hours before a High Court in Kumasi granted an injunction restraining the NPP from holding elections in the Constituency.

Two aggrieved members – Benjamin Ofori and Kwame Anokye – challenged the credibility of the polling station elections supervised by a committee led by former Bantama lawmaker, Henry Kwabena Kokofu.

They claim that some individuals who had automatically forfeited their party membership after sponsoring an independent candidate during the 2020 general elections were allowed to pick nomination forms to contest various positions.

“The plaintiffs aver that all efforts to compel the Defendants from disqualifying these people from contesting the elections have proven futile.

The plaintiffs have been pushed to the belief that aforementioned people can be stopped or disqualified from contesting in the aforementioned 1st Defendant only with the help of this Honorable Court”, their writ read in part.

They wanted the court to among others declare that any member of the New Patriotic Party who forfeits his membership cannot contest elections.

According to Akwasi Nti, all these culminated in the election of people whose loyalty to the party is questionable revealing a Constituency Executive of NPP is serving as Ward Chairman of the opposition NDC.

Let’s live harmoniously to safeguard Ghana’s peace – Peace Council on recent clashes




The National Peace Council (NPC) has called on Ghanaians to live harmoniously with each other to safeguard the country’s peace.

It has urged Ghanaians to protect “the peace and security of the country by creating and using avenues of tolerance, cooperation, and coexistence to sustain the country’s identity as an oasis of peace in Africa.”

This follows the unfortunate violent clashes in some parts of the country which have resulted in the deaths of some citizens.

Reports from Kintampo in the Bono East Region, Nkwanta in the Oti Region, and Wenchiki in the Northeast Region indicate that violence has led to the destruction of lives and property in these affected communities.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, the NPC reminded Ghanaians “of paragraphs (c), (d) and (i) of
article 41 of the 1992 constitution of the Republic of Ghana which states thus:  The exercise and enjoyment of rights and freedoms is inseparable from the performance of duties and obligations, and accordingly, it shall be the duty of every citizen.”

“To foster national unity and live in harmony with others;  to respect the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of others, and generally to refrain from doing acts detrimental to the welfare of other persons. To co-operate with lawful agencies in the maintenance of law and order.”

Defence and National Security Ministers to appear before parliament today over Kintampo clash




The Ministers of Defence and National Security are expected to appear before the Defence and Interior Committee of Parliament on Thursday, November 23, to provide a briefing on actions being taken by the government to forestall a clash between the Mo and Wangara tribes in the Kintampo North municipality.

This comes on the back of a summons by the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin.

According to the Member of Parliament for the area, Joseph Kwame Kumah, tensions were high when the Mo tribe requested to perform rituals within the months of November and December, coinciding with the annual Klubi festival of the Wangara community.

In response to calls for a ceasefire by the MP, the Speaker directed that the government must take immediate steps to ensure peaceful coexistence.

“As the first authorities to come to this house to brief the committee on Defense and Interior, this is an urgent matter that should be handled with dispatch. I think Thursday should be okay for the two ministers and their commanders to appear before the committee early tomorrow morning by 9 am to brief the committee. It is an urgent matter.”

“The National Security Council through their regional office should immediately intervene because the chieftaincy institution is one of the cornerstones of the peace and security of our country, and we hold that institution dearly. We will do everything to prevent that institution from falling into disarray,” he stated.
