Subin: Police avert trouble over NPP register

Tension is boiling within the ruling New Patriotic Party executives at Subin Constituency in the Ashanti Region over party membership registration.

Over forty aggrieved polling station executives on Monday, September 13 stormed the party’s constituency office, demanding the register for the various polling stations.

General Secretary for NPP John Boadu, in a press conference last week, directed polling station executives to take custody of all registers to afford party members to review their details and new members to get registered.

But at Subin Constituency, the story is different, forcing polling station executives to march to the party office in demand for the register.

The angry polling station executives stormed the party office, heckled and nearly beat up the Constituency Secretary, Akuamoah Boateng.

But for the timely intervention of personnel from the Manhyia Divisional Police Command who whisked him away, a different story might have been told.

Some of the aggrieved polling station executives who shared their sentiments with 3news.com explained that “John Boadu has spoken and the directive is simple: all the registers must be kept at the polling stations but our constituency executives are keeping the documents to themselves so today we are here to protest for the membership register”.

Another angry polling station executive who identified himself as Koblah explained that “the Constituency Secretary told us earlier that the register is in but now he is telling a different story. Instead of him giving us the document, he’s dragging his feet so we decided to protest until the needful is done”.
