The leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Aowin Constituency in the Western North Region has stated that they are collaborating with the appropriate authorities to apprehend those responsible for setting fire to their party office.
On Sunday, May 22, 2022, some disgruntled party members burnt the party’s constituency headquarters over the National Council’s decision to rerun the constituency’s election.
According to the National Council of the NPP, the elections were riddled with anomalies and must be redone.
However, the proponents claim they are dissatisfied with the directive and are fully opposed to it.
They vowed to oppose any effort to hold the elections again.
The offended party members stated at a news conference that the party’s General Secretary, John Boadu, is responsible for the latest event.
According to them, the committee did not urge a redo of the elections; Mr. John Boadu made that suggestion.
The Chairman of the District, Samuel Obeng, stated that no arrests have been made as of yet.
“In the recordings of the incident that are circulating, there are people chanting in the background; we assume that these individuals were involved, if not the actual offenders. We want to use this information to track down the offenders.”
“No arrests have been made as of yet, but the police have pledged to continue searching until they are apprehended.”
