Some National Democratic Congress members at the Asawase Constituency have filed a petition to the National Executive Council (NEC) of the party following the failure to present the nomination form of Masawudu Mubarick, one of the aspirants in the party’s internal parliamentary primaries in Asawase.
Mr Mubarick’s nomination forms was rejected at the constituency and Regional level pending disciplinary action against him.
His nomination was also rejected at the national party headquarters on Friday, July 19, 2019.
At the close of filing nominations last Friday, the Functional Executives committee in a letter indicated that aggrieved persons should petition to get their grievances resolved.
Speaking to journalists, the Convenor of the Concerned NDC youth in Asawase and supporter of Masawudu Mabarick, Fatiu Saliu said the group had already followed the NDC’s advice.
He said they were awaiting the outcome of a petition sent on Wednesday to determine their next line of action.
“When we realised it was not possible for us to file here in Kumasi, then we decided to go to the regional level. When we reached the region, the excuses for which they did not take our nomination was that there is a pending petition by the same person who wants to file his nomination so the nomination can wait.”
We strongly believe that at the end of the day, we will be able to file our nomination after the national executives have looked into this matter,” he said.
