A disgruntled member of the National Democratic Congress has locked the party’s regional office in the Ashanti Region to demand full accountability from the regional executives who he has blamed for the party’s defeat in the December 7 polls.
Yakubu Tony Aidoo, who is an NDC communication officer for Asawase, wants the Ashanti Regional executives of the party and the regional campaign team dissolved for failing to deliver the one-million vote promised President John Mahama in the Ashanti Region.
“I have locked the office with five padlocks this morning. If they open I will lock it again with 70 padlocks,” he warned, and vowed to lock the NDC offices in other regions where the party did not perform satisfactorily.
Speaking to OTEC FM’S DWABREM Programme, Mr Aidoo explained his action was triggered by the fact that the party did not listen to him when he questioned the competencies of the regional campaign team members in executing a successful campaign for victory.
The regional executives have meanwhile re-opened the office and are scheduled to meet Tuesday afternoon to do a postmortem of the elections. When contacted, Deputy Regional Communication Director, Solomon Anane, did not deny or confirm if the office was locked except to say “the place has been opened and functional”.
