Peter Ayinbisa Ayamga, the Communication Director for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has called on delegates who are expected to vote in the parliamentary primaries in Bawku Central to go out and exercise their responsibility without fear.

It would be recalled that the Bawku Central Constituency could not hold its elections during the party’s orphan parliamentary primaries in 2023. This was because of the tension in the area.

Speaking to Mark Smith on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show, Mr. Ayinbisa Ayamga confirmed that the situation had been brought under control and tasked all within the constituency to go and vote for their preferred candidates.

“It was purely because of security reasons that we decided to put the constituency on hold. You would realize that elections in many constituencies mean that security issues would be a challenge. You may not be able to get adequate security in all places, but now that we have the election in only two [Binduri and Bawku Central], it would mean we would be able to organize the security service to properly beef up security in the area.”

“Over the last few months, there have been some disturbances in these areas, so the party is very much aware of what can happen, and as of now, intelligence has it that everything is fine. There are no security threats, so I want to urge the delegates that on January 27th, they should come out in their numbers to vote because they will be heavily protected.

Meanwhile, in the Bawku constituency, one aspirant has been disqualified for reasons not yet known.

“We want to make sure we do not put up wrong candidates. We do not want to put up candidates who have criminal records or are dual citizens. We are learning that there have been some disqualifications. In the Bawku Central constituency, Mogtar has been disqualified for almost the same reasons he was disqualified the other time. I do not want to put out those details on the radio. He has accepted that [the disqualification].”

In the Upper East Region, the NPP has selected 13 individuals to lead the party ahead of the parliamentary elections later this year.
