Angry supporters of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Yendi have sworn to violently stop the party from electing constituency officers in the area over what they say is the attempt by the Member of Parliament (MP), Farouk Aliu Mahama, to steal the election.
They are accusing the MP of having orchestrated the removal of 123 names of party members he knows very well that he is not going to be able to remote control from the constituency album and replaced them with his cronies and this is something they have vowed not to allow to stand – they are going to resist that.
The Constituency Chairman, Abubakar Sadique, who is leading the charge, has publicly stated that there is no way they are going to play dead for anybody to swagger to the constituency election centre with the doctored album to conduct an election there.
This is not going to happen and that they are going to fiercely resist. “If they make the mistake and bring the discredited album to the centre, for sure, we will stop them.
