The New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Chiana-Paga constituency of the Upper East region has issued a fervent call to law enforcement authorities to take immediate action against what they described as the aggressive behavior of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate, Nikyema Billa Alamzy. According to the NPP, Alamzy has a proven record of both physical and verbal assaults on individuals within the constituency.

“Instances of Mr. Alamzy’s violent behavior are numerous. During the party primaries in 2019, he and his hooligans attacked the then Member of Parliament and fellow contestant, Hon. Rudolf Nsorwini Amenga-Etego, on Thursday, August 22, 2019,” Kwalase Bayeriwe Thomas, the Chiana-Paga NPP Constituency Secretary, stated.

Mr. Kwalase, who addressed the press at the party’s office on Sunday, added that Mr. Alamzy and his “hooligans” attacked their own party’s constituency chairman, James Kojo Kopamamo, in July 2022 for not supporting him in previous parliamentary primaries.

Aside from masterminding the attacks on NPP agents at the Electoral Commission district office on October 5, 2023, where Mr. Alamzy personally assaulted an NPP agent, Nicholas Dedo, they say the recent attack orchestrated by the NDC PC, who is a bodybuilder, and his cohorts occurred during the 67th independence celebrations in Paga town park.

“After the school children had finished marching, the NPP followed, and we [NDC] joined. After they had finished, we saw them coming back towards us. Our constituency chairman asked us to move back, but they ran amok and started beating us. It was not provoked by any NPP member, but it was planned because they have a hooligan as a parliamentary candidate,” Mr. Kwalase stated.

In response to these allegations, Nikyema Billa Alamzy has vehemently denied the accusations leveled against him. He asserts that the claims made by the NPP are baseless and politically motivated to tarnish his reputation and derail his campaign efforts.

“They are baseless accusations, and I have not been involved in any of the things they said about me. They are frustrated that I am winning the seat hands down, so I don’t want to respond further. Because it is like when you are bathing and a madman comes to take your towel, you don’t have to chase him naked. So, they should go to the field and do the work because these allegations wouldn’t fetch them votes,” he responded.

Furthermore, the NPP accused Mr. Alamzy of having ties to a vigilante group named “Save Ghana,” purportedly operating within the constituency with “some members of the group coming from Burkina Faso, which is Alamzy’s patrilineal country.” But Mr. Alamzy refuted the claims, stating, “The time for campaigning is limited, so I can’t give the NPP so much attention.”
