The New Trust Newspaper, has gathered that ,the Northern Regional branch of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has issued a strong warning to all flagbearer hopefuls and their campaign team members to desist from meeting party delegates else they risk facing sanctions.
This paper has intercepted a letter dated 30th December, 2021 entitled “CHAIRMAN SAMBA BANS CAMPAIGN ACTIVITIES BY PRESIDENTIAL ASPIRANTS IN THE NORTHERN REGION”.
The letter was signed by Mohammad A.Bantima (Samba)NPP NORTHERN REGIONAL CHAIRMAN ).
The one page letter reads “,the attention of the Northern regional chairman of the NPP,Mohammed A.Bantima(Chairman Samba) has been drawn to series of meetings between Presidential aspirants and Party executives in the Northern region.
This unfortunate happening has the tendency to disrupt H.R.Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s governance and the peace within the New Patriotic Party.
the regional chairman condemns this act and further instructs the following :
1.Henceforrh,all Presidential aspirants are desist from holding meetings to campaign to polling station executives, Electoral area coordinators, Constituency executives and Regional executives in the region.
2.That all Presidential aspirants adhere to the National Council’s directive to desist from putting up signboards,banners and posters in the northern region.
3.Further ,no t-shirt ls,brochures,souvenirs and pictures should he displayed in the region.
4.All Presidential aspirants who signboards and banners are displayed with or without their consent should immediately take steps to remove them or the party will remove them.
5.All media engagement for and on behalf of Presidential aspirants in the Region should cease .
Failure to adhere to this caution will attract severe punishment as the Northern Regional Executive Committee will not countenance any activity by any aspirant which will disrupt and destabilize the peace and unity in the party.
I want to use this opportunity to urge all party members and Presidential aspirants to focus on assisting the President of the Republic H.E.Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in running the affairs of our nation and wait for the right time as indicated by the National Council to commence your campaigns. Thank you.
