The leadership of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Ho Central Constituency of the Volta Region has denied neglecting the party’s grassroots activists as being alleged by some aggrieved elements within a pro-NPP group called GAZA.
Chairman of GAZA, Seidu Adamu told Class91.3FM in an interview that they played a major role in protecting ballot boxes and patrolling the Ghana-Togo border to ensure that non-Ghanaians were prevented from taking part in the polls.
In his estimation, the party will suffer dire consequences in 2020 if it continues to neglect GAZA.
“I’m disappointed because they are not keeping their promises to us, nothing like that is reflecting and you know how they are going to tag you if you are an NPP member in the Volta Region. So, if after doing all the shouting and dirty work and till now, we [GAZA] have not got anything, imagine how we are going to be a laughing stock in town… Our leaders in the Volta Region are not helping us and I want the president to know that things are not well here,” he said.
But reacting to the claims, the NPP’s Ho Central Constituency Secretary, Bright Doe, accused Mr Seidu Adamu of being on a lone mission to court disaffection for the party.
“There are members, as I said, in GAZA who are NPP,” he admitted, adding: “We spoke to Seidu Adamu that he has not written any official letter to the party so far as your problems are concerned, and he said that we should know the problems he is having as an individual. So, you see that it has to do with an individual interest rather than the group interest. So, if he is having problems, it is better he approaches the constituency executives rather than going public”.
