Subin: Aggrieved NPP delegates accuse MP of favouritism, bias

Armed police officers were stationed at the Subin Constituency Office of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Kumasi.

It follows threats by some aggrieved delegates to lock up the party office Tuesday.

The card bearing members of the NPP accuse the MP for the area, Eugene Boakye Antwi and a women organizer of bias.

According to them, the MP and the executives are holding on to monies from the National office meant for delegates.

They claimed that some delegates, who they say are favourites of the MP were given their monies while others were discriminated against.

The delegates stormed the party’s office with extra padlocks and chains and threatened to close down the place if the monies which have been in arrears since 2017 were not released to them.

“We have worked hard to bring the party to power. When the President comes to the region and is on his rounds, we use our own money to also support and follow him. So when the party brings us something small for Christmas and the MP is sitting on it, no one will be happy with him…Up to date, no one has called us to tell us anything,” one woman complained to Accra-based Citi FM.

“We want the party leaders to see to it that we get our money; from 2017, 2018 and 2019. As for this money, even if it is one cedi, we will collect,” she added.

Police were, however, deployed to the scene to prevent any eventuality.
