On Monday, some youth supporters of the New Patriotic Party from the Odododiodio and Ablekuma South Constituencies stormed the premises of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly, disrupting the swearing-in ceremony of government appointees.
They raised accusations against the regional party executives, claiming these executives appointed persons into the Assembly who did not support their campaign to gain more votes for the NPP during the 2016 campaign period.
The NPP secretary for the Ododdiodio Constituency, Samuel Ofosu, spoke to Onua FM and said Raymond Ntoana, who is the suspended Constituency Chairman, had admitted publicly that he would not cooperate with the then parliamentary candidate, Nii Lamptey Barnaman.
The open declaration led to Ntoana's suspension.
According to Samuel Ofosu, this situation led to Ntoana's name omitted from the list of submissions to the NPP regional executives for consideration at the Assembly.
However, the youth apparently found out on Sunday that Raymond Ntoana's name had been added to the list and would be sworn-in on Monday.
“We will not allow them to swear him in because he never supported our cause. I will urge the NPP elders that we have worked for the party to come to power to put in place good policies for us and our aim for working for the party is not to eat today”, Samuel Ofosu said.
He opined that the party would not have won if the members had sat idle like Ntoana did.
He further stated, “we heard [his name being included] yesterday so we went to the assembly, but it was Sunday and as such there was no one there that is why we have come to stop it today."
