Member of Parliament for Tafo Constituency Ekow Vincent Assafuah has beaten war drums, cautioning some seven appointees of the constituency from voting at the regional executive election on Saturday, May 28.
Mr Assafuah, in an exclusive interview with Akoma FM’s William Evans Nkum, explained that “if the seven appointees fail to respect the court restraining order, I will physically prevent them from voting in the ongoing elections”.
The Old Tafo MP secured a High Court injunction to restrain some seven appointees from taking part in the NPP Ashanti Region Executive Elections because the MP is of the view that the appointees do not merit the status according to the laid down party constitutional process.
Mr. Assafua further cautioned that “they will have to bury me because if the appointees decide to flout the court order and vote because it is against the laws of the NPP. We are law abiding and respect the rule of law so I want to believe that they will respect the court’s order and stay home because if they come, I have signaled all my people to be on alert if any of them set foot here to vote I will definitely go physical”.
The MP is of the view that since the said appointed constituency members evaded the laid down party constitution, they cannot fairly represent the people of Old Tafo.
