Sammy Awuku, National Organizer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), has admonished the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) not to 'cowardly' pull out of the ongoing bye-election at the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency.

National Chairman of the NDC, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, confirmed the news in an interview with Kwami Sefa Kayi on Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo' programme saying the "NDC cannot sit on the fence and watch its members to lose their lives" because of an election.

" ... We can no longer guarantee the security of our people and our polling agents . . . We have conferred with our candidate . . . We also do not believe a single life should be lost in this by-election so we have withdrawn from the process," he added.

But the NPP National Organizer, in an interview with host Kwami Sefa Kayi on 'Kokrokoo' on Peace FM, wondered why the NDC would decide to boycott the election due to an incident at one polling station within the constituency.

According to him, there are 137 polling stations at Ayawaso West Wuogon and so an incident at a single electoral area shouldn't be the basis for the NDC's sudden decision to pull out of the bye-election.

He alluded to some chaotic incidents that occurred in previous elections which the NPP should have equally boycotted but resisted themselves.

Though he condemned the violent attacks on some electorates at Bawleshie Presby electoral area, Sammy Awuku believed the NDC is only acting cowardly and refusing to participate in the elections because they had already made a decision to boycott the election.

The NDC candidate, he opined, won't win the election and so the opposition party is finding [-pre-emptive measures to avoid defeat.
