The Northern Regional Chairman hopeful of the New Patriotic Party ( NPP ), Alhaji Abdallah Hindu says, the success of the upcoming NPP’s constituency election is rested on the technical competence of the Electoral Commission (EC ), the prevailing security atmosphere and the need for Political actors to play the game by the rules.
According to Alhaji Hindu, the Security agencies and EC should provide security and sense of fairness to all the aspirants. He calls on the Police and the Military to accept that their role is to facilitate. Adding that, aspirants themselves will have to accept the rules of the game, hence, educate their supporters to distance themselves from violence .
Alhaji Abdallah Hindu made the call at a Press Conference held in Tamale on Monday, February 19, 2018.
“Our constituency primary election is forthcoming to elect constituency executives across Ghana following the expiration of the mandate of the current constituency executives which is stipulated in article 7 of our party constitution ” Alhaji Hindu said.
He opines that, when the three elements (ie the EC, Security and Aspirants ) are adhered to, will lead to free fair and credible elections come 24th to 27th of February 2018, across the 270 constituencies.
Alhaji Abdallah Hindu again, urged all members of the NPP to bury their differences and forge on, for unity during and after the election and not to see it as a platform to throw dirty punches at other aspirants.
“This is the time to make a rightful move by voting for a candidate who is trust worthy, accessible and has the party at heart. Be part of the change and preach peace always. The time is now “he added.
