Some delegates of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Abura/Asebu/Kwamankese Constituency are up in arms against the Minority Leader in Parliament, Cassiel Ato Forson.
The aggrieved delegates accuse the Ajumako/Enyan/Essiam lawmaker of scheming to impose the spokesperson of former President John Mahama Felix Kwakye Ofosu ahead of the NDC parliamentary primaries in the Central Region town.
The delegates have described Dr Ato Forson’s actions as an act of bad faith as they allege that he is campaigning for Mr Kwakye as Mahama’s favourite.
The convener of the group Andrew Anamoah said: “Dr Ato Forson said in a meeting that the former President is charging them [MP aspirants] to step down and give their nod to Felix Ofosu Kwakye. We don’t even know what is happening. This is evil”.
“We want to tell Dr Ato Forson that we respect his new role as Minority Leader. But we believe what he is doing is not the democratic principle laid down by the late president and founder of the NDC Jerry John Rawlings and that will bring us power in 2024”, he added.
They are urging the former President to state his position on the matter as they threaten a face-off over plans to get his aide to run solo.
“We are urging the former President to come out to confirm or deny these claims. It is just unfair for him to be dragged into the mud”, they said.
