The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Offinso South Constituency in the Ashanti Region, Mr. Abdallah Bandah has rubbishes curses invoked on him and some party bigwigs by a cross section of party supporters.
According to the Offinso South lawmaker, he cares less about the actions of the few disgruntled supporters who want the world to hear them because he (MP) has not committed any crime to warrant such attacks.
Speaking in an interview with Opera News’s Franklin ASARE-DONKOH at the Parliament House in Accra, Mr. Bandah maintained his innocence of what he has been accused of. Saying he is not afraid of the invocation of the river deities within his constituency and others across the country to place curse on him and some high ranked members of the party.
“I believe in God and for that reason their cures will not do me anything (foko). In our traditional settings cures will only have effect on someone if that person has committed a crime or offence? But in my case, I have done no wrong to suffer any consequence of their spiritual invocation and cures” he reiterated.
The visibly calm and soft spoken lawmaker explained that he has no hand in the alleged manipulation of the party’s electoral system to favour him to go unopposed as the party prepares to hold it parliamentary primaries in constituencies NPP is having incumbent MPs.
Mr. Bandah insisted that no body from the party’s hierarchy has called to inform him that he is the sole candidate to contest on NPP’s ticket come 7th December, 2020 as he is being accused of.
Meanwhile there is still an uneasy claim in the Offinso South Constituency as party faithful’s have vowed to resist any attempt with their last drop of blood any imposition of candidate on them by the hierarchy of the NPP.
The supporters are calling on the national executives to allow two other aspirants who have been disqualified to contest the three times MP who is seeking his fourth team in order to restore peace in the constituency to ensure a resounding victory for both presidential and parliamentary candidates come the December 7, general elections.
