Yendi Constituency chairman of the NPP Abubakari Sadik is calling on the party to suspend the upcoming elections.

At a press conference on Sunday, April 24 in Yendi Abubakari Sadik said “I am assuring you media here that if they make mistake by not calling off the elections on 28th and 29th and bring out album that both parties can accept and mistakenly accept the one they have, we will resist.

“I am telling you, on Thursday, I will lead it, we will resist it, whatever we will do to protect the elections we are ready to do it,” he said.

The governing New Patriotic Party, NPP earlier this month announced a new date for the election of its Constituency Executives across the country.

The party had initially scheduled April 24, 2022, to April 28, 2022, to hold the elections, but recent chaos that characterised the Polling Station elections has forced it to be scheduled for between April 28, 2022, and May 2, 2022.

General Secretary of the NPP, John Boadu says other dates remain unchanged.

“The National Executive Committee initially decided that the constituency elections would be held between 28th April and 2nd May. But we have postponed it. However, all is on course. In fact, nominations will be opened and closed between the 19th and 20th of April and vetting of prospective aspirants will be done between 21st and 22nd April.”

“If there is any redress, it will also be held between 23rd and 24th of April.”

The party’s Polling Station elections have been marred with violence in some parts of the country over disagreement on the album to be used. Some have even sought legal action to halt the elections in some areas.
