Agona East NDC kick against voting on skirt and blouse style

Executives of the Agona East Constituency of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have expressed concern about photographs of President John Mahama and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate embossed on some posters in the constituency.


Mr Francis Duodu Addo, the District Chief Executive (DCE), said the situation had created worry and acrimony among party supporters.

Speaking to the media at Agona Nsaba, Mr Addo said the party was highly disappointed by the move aimed at creating avenues for the opposition NPP parliamentary candidate, Mr James Owusu-Barnes, to win the elections.

He said the posters are meant to create division, hatred and instability for the NDC adding that executives would never sit unconcerned for that to happen.

Mr Addo said more than nine posters had been sighted at Agona Nsaba, Agona Duakwa and other towns in the constituency with the motive to preach “skirt and blouse” voting.

“An investigation team had been set up to unravel the mystery behind this and anyone found culpable would be dealt with. The culprit would be referred to the disciplinary committee of the party,” he said.

The DCE said the action was not commensurate with the NDC Constitution and would not be countenanced by the constituency, regional and national executives of the party.

He said there was absolute peace and unity in the Agona East NDC after the primaries and cautioned that no one should bring divisions among the party members.

Alhaji Ibrahim Jabiru, the Agona East Constituency Chairman, said an emergency meeting had been held to find a lasting solution to the problem and

warned that stiffer punishment would be meted out to anyone found to have printed such posters.

The Chairman said the executives and supporters were working hard to enable President Mahama to win convincingly during the 2016 polls.
