A Northern Regional polling station executive of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Saani Abdulai Hassan has refuted claims that the executives have kicked against the candidature of Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia as flagbearer of the party for the 2024 elections.
A communiqué purportedly coming from the executives in the Northern Region of which Saani Abdulai Hassan has been cited as one of the signatories read; ”We express our utmost displeasure and anger at attempts by some of the Northern Regional Executives, notably, the Regional Chairman, Regional Secretary, Regional Organizer, among others, to impose Dr Mahamudu Bawumia on us, and any attempt, thereafter, to direct us to endorse him in the upcoming presidential primaries of the great NPP.
”We are also certainly aware that these Regional Executives who have no regard for the Party’s Presidential Primaries’ Code of Conduct, and collaborating with some Constituency Executives, are championing this course so that they can further attract favour and support from Dr Bawumia for their incoming elections after their wanton display of incompetence has lost them a favour, satisfaction and touch with the members of the party at the grassroots.”
The communiqué which has caught media attention with some headlines such as ”We Will Resist Any Attempt to Impose Dr. Bawumia On Us – Northern Region NPP”, according to Abdulai Hassan, is falsehood.
”I, Saani Abdulai Hassan ‘Xpen6th’, have not been part of a group with unwholesome agenda to hurt the political fortunes of the party…Breaking the 8 is only possible with Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia as our torch bearer and nothing can change that”, he emphasized in a rejoinder to Peacefmonline.
