Some Polling station executives and supporters of the the opposition National Democratic Congress in the Lower  Manya Krobo constituency in the Eastern region on Saturday locked up the Constituency office of the  Party.

The group calling itself Concerned NDC Branch Executives and Members” mostly party  agents used by the party in the  December 7, 2016 Presidential and Parliamentary election  took the action after several agitations and complaints over failure by the Constituency executives  to pay in full, allowances meant for them during the polls.

The decision of the aggrieved supporters of the party to lock up the party office follows ultimatum issued to the both regional and National Executives on Tuesday 7th, February 2017 to suspend the Constituency executives for failing to disburse in full allowance meant for the party agents and the fact that,they have become nuisance to the party supporters in the area due to their poor leadership style.

According to the aggrieved agents and Supporters of the party,the constituency executives shortchanged them by given each agent  Ghc 100.00 instead of Ghc 200.00 due them as disbursed by National executives.

The aggrieved polling agents and prompters claim, Mr. Kofi Portopy, the national chairman of the party directed the Constituency executives and the Member of Parliament for the area, Hon. Okletey Teilarbi to pay the polling agents within two weeks after he (MP)  when their concerns got to him however,that order has been disregarded .

They also accused the Constituency executives of collapsing the party with corrupt practices  in the selection of Parliamentary candidates during primaries hence the party’s near defeat.

” The constituency executives have destroyed the party ,the vote margin I’m 2012 was 8000 but in 2016 ,it has dropped to 300 difference because the supporters are furious due to the way the executives take money to taking side during primaries hence we want them to be suspended .When we approached them over our balance of ghc100 ,they told us they have borrowed it ,and we said how can an elephant borrow the food of ant “, The spokesperson for the group,Tetteh Atsu said.
