Angry Supporters of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Suame Constituency of the Ashanti Region have seized property in the constituency party office following a decision by the Ashanti regional executives to reinstate the Suame Constituency Chairman Umar Saeed
The supporters on Tuesday October 27, 2020 stormed the party office to seized a television set , Chairs, Tables, Party T-shirts and host of others in protest against the decision.
It would be recalled that, Mr Abubakari Yakubu petitioned the Ashanti Regional NDC Party executives to disqualify Umar Saeed from contesting Suame Constituency NDC chairmanship position during the party Constituency primaries in 2018, claiming he was not a member of NDC in the Suame Constituency.
Umar Saeed was cleared by the NDC regional executives and he was able to contest and won as Suame Constituency Chairman.
Abubakari Yakubu who petitioned the NDC Ashanti Regional executives to disqualify Umar Saeed, secured court a injunction on Umar Saeed after the Constituency primaries.
The case has been adjourned several times after court sitting and the ruling has been adjourned to November 10, 2020.
But a letter signed by Ashanti Regional Chairman of the NDC Augustus Nana Akwasi sighted by MyNewsgh reads in part “This is to inform you that you have been reinstated as the Chairman for the Suame Constituency, I entreat you to work hard to justify to this important decision”
The letter from NDC Ashanti Regional Chairman angered members of NDC in the Suame Constituency.
Speaking in an interview with Pure FM’s Osei Kwadwo, the angry NDC Suame Constituency supporters warned Ashanti Regional Chairman Augustus Nana Akwasi to rescind his decision and wait for the court’s ruling.
“We don’t want any monopoly leadership, since court has placed an injunction on Umar Saeed as Suame NDC Chairman, only the court can remove the injunction not regional or national executives” they said, threatening to attack anyone who will open NDC Suame party office.
