UFP blacks out media over sabotage claims

The United Front Party (UFP) has decided to by-pass the media in its preparatory activities towards the 2016 general elections, saying some media organisations had previously deliberately sabotaged the party.

“Some of the media are deliberate on us,” accuses General Secretary Samuel Bekoe Owusu, “trying to thwart our efforts.”

He was speaking on TV3’s Midday Live on Tuesday, February 3.

Mr Owusu noted that regional executive elections have already been conducted across the country with the Brong Ahafo Region being the only region left to elect executives.

He said the party is gearing towards its national congress to elect national executives and subsequently a flagbearer for the 2016 elections.

Meanwhile, 2012 presidential candidate, Akwasi Addai Odike, has hinted he will stand for re-election during the party’s presidential primary.

This comes after news broke that he has been excommunicated from the party.

He maintained that he is a legal member of the party and will continue to be as he awaits the primary for the 2016 elections.
