A Group known as the Democratic Forum of Yendi has called on the Regional Secretariat of the New Patriotic Party, NPP, to suspend Mr Abukari Sadiq, the Yendi Constituency Chairman of the NPP, for exhibiting divisive and destructive tendencies in the Constituency.
In an interview with the media in Yendi, a spokesman for the group, Chief Hassan Abubakari Wumbei, stated that Chairman Sadiq took internal issues of the NPP to the media, Diamond FM to be specific, on June 16, 2020 rather than using the internal structures in place for addressing grievances.
They noted that this action has the potential to generate into lawlessness and chaos within the party in the Constituency.
The Group noted further that as a Constituency Chairman, he needed to have known better that party issues are resolved within the party structures and not through media interviews.
They stated that what Chairman Sadiq did on Diamond FM was same as what Hon Peter Wuni did and was suspended in in the Nalerigu/Gambaga Constituency.
They further accused the Yendi Chairman of attempting to overthrow a directive of the National Executive Council of the party that all Constituencies holding elections on June 20th should do so at the Electoral Areas level in view of the COVID-19 issues.
Alhaji Hassan also accused the Yendi Chairman of acting unilaterally by petitioning the National Headquaters of the NPP without consulting other Constituency officers of the party in Yendi by generating fake titles to unknown people to make his petition look credible.
The Group further alleged that Chairman Nam did not copy the Regional Secretariat of the Northern Region in the said petition to the National Headquarters. This action they described as an act of high indiscipline on the part of Chairman Nam.
The group has therefore called on the Regional Secretariat of the NPP to reprimand the Yendi Constituency Chairman.
In another development, some Electoral Area Coordinators in the Yendi Constituency have accused the Constituency Chairman of Yendi of using forgery and deceit to get their names on what they described as illegal document presented to the National Headquarters and therefore called on the Regional Secretariat as well as the National Headquarters of the NPP to investigate the allegations as soon as possible.
