The Greater Accra Region Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Joseph Kobina Ade Coker, has expressed disgust at comments by followers of Augustus Goosie Tanoh that the regional executives are preventing their presidential candidate hopeful from campaigning in the Region.
“I was not pleased with it,” Mr Ade Coker stated.
He has, therefore, issued a warning to all aspirants, irrespective of level, to notify the executives before beginning any form of campaigning.
He issued the warning on Wednesday, when Mr Tanoh called on him at the party’s regional office.
Goosie Tanoh began his campaign tour of the Greater Accra Region, having started from the Volta Region.
Flagbearer aspirants are campaigning ahead of NDC’s December 7 presidential primary.
Some members are also campaigning for next month’s national executive elections.
“[To] all aspirants be it at the national level or at the flagbearer level, it is appropriate that they call on the [Greater Accra] Region before they start going to the constituencies,” Mr Ade Coker said.
“Because when you do that, we will be in a position to ask one or two of our executives to accompany you on your tour so that if there is any misunderstanding, it can be quickly resolved.”
He also called for proper dialogue to forestall any misunderstanding that the campaign itinerary of any aspirant may trigger.
