NDC members in Ashaiman constituency has warned the National Chairman Kofi Portuphy to stay away from the party primaries in the constituency or face the consequences.
According to Yakubu Salifu, who is leading the group named itself the “Ashaiman NDC Taskforce”, they will resist strongly to any plots by Kofi Portuphy to turn the party primaries in his favour.
The group convener said, “the covert dealings with which, he [Kofi Portuphy] became National Chairman will not be allowed to fly this time round in the constituency.”
The group claimed that the National Chairman of the NDC is intentionally positioning his associates in various constituencies across the country in order to use them to keep the party chairmanship in upcoming years.
In an interview, Salifu Yakubu blamed Kofi Portuphy of not doing anything for the party and using wrong means to win the NDC chairmanship.
“He just came and was made party chairman, he has done nothing for the party” he said.
According to the convener, Mr Portuphy is scheming to use the same tactics to keep the party position, a scheme they are ready to spoil.
Some NDC loyalists in the Ashaiman threatened earlier to block the parliamentary primary elections in the area in case of any unjustified disqualification.
