The Upper East Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Anthony Namoo, has urged delegates in Navrongo to approve a candidate capable of uniting the party for a takeover of the parliamentary seat from the opposition National Democratic Congress.

Mr. Namoo, who noted that the constituency has always been the stronghold of the NPP, said the party lost the seat to the NDC because of disunity.

While he urged the delegates to elect a suitable candidate, he has called for unity before and after the primary to build the formidable front the party needs to reclaim the parliamentary seat.

The NPP in the Upper East Region is conducting primaries in 10 constituencies, namely Bolgatanga Central, Builsa South, Navrongo, Chiana-Paga, Bongo, Talensi, Nabdam, Zebila, Garu, and Tempane constituencies.

In three constituencies, namely Pusiga, Bolgatanga East, and Builsa North Constituencies, candidates went unopposed.

Elections are currently on hold in the Bawku Central Constituency.

It would be recalled that the Regional Secretary of the NPP, who also serves as a Parliamentary Candidate (PC) aspirant for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Bolgatanga Central Constituency, Elvis Atia Awonekai, was accused of corrupting the electoral process by offering Ghc500 to each of the 794 delegates.

These allegations were made by Agana Bawa Rashid, another candidate. He voiced these accusations during a conversation with A1 Radio’s Joshua Asaah regarding the ongoing parliamentary primaries in the Upper East Region.

Meanwhile, Elvis Figo Awonekai has responded to the allegations. He explained that any aspirant who cannot raise at least Ghc500 for delegates to transport themselves has no business vying for any elective positions.

He, however, denied spending as much as Ghc500 on each delegate. He explained that his company team, however, reached out to delegates and offered them a token for transportation.
