- NDC's Greater Accra chairman, Ade Coker, has reportedly 'clashed' with the MP for Ningo-Prampram
- The incident reportedly occurred at Ningo-Prampram during the NDC's election of a flagbearer for the 2020 general election
- One delegate reportedly sustained a serious injury as the electoral process went on
Reports reaching YEN.com.gh show that the Greater Accra chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Ade Coker, has spoken after his exchange of words with the Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo-Prampram, Sam George.
According to a report by Peacefmonline.com, Coker stated that the incident was a "typical Sam George behaviour".
Speaking on Okay FM’s Adekye Akye Abia morning show, he added that George needs to educate himself about the structures of the NDC.
“We have a party chairman in the party structures; it is the chairman who is the leader of the constituency.
MP is just an MP and very soon, he (Sam George) has to go to the chairman to make his intention known through interview as to whether he will continue or not. What power has the MP in the constituency?” he asked.
His argument followed reports of violence that occurred at the Ningo Prampram constituency, as the NDC went to the polls to select a flagbearer for the 2020 elections.
Not only was there a misunderstanding over the qualification of some of the delegates, there was actually an exchange of hefty blows, resulting in one of the delegates sustaining a serious injury in the face, with blood oozing from his wounds.
George reportedly warned Coker to desist from creating tension in the constituency.
However, Coker reminded the MP that he is in control of the constituency, as the regional chairman.
According to him, if Sam George is not abreast with the rules of the party, he should go and study it before commanding him to stay away from the constituency.
He added that the elections are over, and for that reason, the only issue that should be discussed is former president John Mahama’s win come 2020.
Coker went on to say George’s name is mentioned wherever there is trouble, citing the violence at the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency, during the by-elections, and the recent one at Ningo-Prampram, during the election of the party’s flagbearer.
