Northern Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Daniel Bugri Naabu has said he has the right to punish any party member who disobeys his orders and wishes.

He has threatened to smoke out the eight party delegates in the region who voted against Nana Akufo-Addo in last Sunday’s super delegates congress.

“I was voted by popular majority in the party so if I want to do my thing, who can stop me by saying that what I am doing is not right? I am the chairman of the region and any person I think is doing something wrong, I can penalize them because I have that mandate…I have the right to discipline any officer who goes against my wish,” he remarked.

He made these threats following the refusal of some eight delegates in the region to vote for Nana Addo in last Sunday’s elections.

The super delegates congress was aimed at reducing the number of presidential candidate aspirants from seven to five as stipulated in the NPP’s constitution.

Bugri Naabu on Eyewitness News disclosed that prior to Sunday’s elections; delegates in the region were made to swear by the Bible and the Quran that they will all vote in favour of Nana Addo.

However, by the close of voting, it came to light that some eight delegates voted for other candidates.

This consequently incurred the wrath of Bugri Naabu who set up a three-member committee to investigate and produce the names of the eight candidtes.

In an interview on Eyewitness News, the NPP’s Northern Regional chairman confirmed that he indeed set up the committee because a pact had been broken.

Bugri Naabu insisted he has not breached any section of the NPP’s constitution by forcing party delegates to vote for his preferred candidate.

“The party rules can be there, but we are human beings. I didn’t breach any law. It’s the wish of the people and no one can tell me I am breaching the law. What law have I breached?” he questioned.

He explained that the delegates who voted for Alan Kyeremanten destroyed Nana Addo’s record of getting a 100 % votes in the Northern Region therefore, they must be punished.

Meanwhile, spokesperson for Alan Kyeremanten has expressed shock at Bugri Naabu’s directive saying, “this is unacceptable and it is horrendous and it shouldn’t have happened.”

Nana Ohene Ntow appealed to the leadership of the party to as a matter of urgency call the Northern Regional chairman to order to save the party from public ridicule.

“He has totally discredited his position as the regional chairman. He has totally discredited his authority as a regional chairman and he has shown that he cannot be trusted as a firm leader in a contest that we are undertaking right now,” he complained.
