He said many party faithful in the constituency had expressed their disappointment in view of the fact that the differences between the two had led to the ineffective organisation of the party to retain the seat in the 2016 election.

Alhaji Bashiru Nii Narh Alema, the Constituency Chairman, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA), said other contestants like Mr Philip Addison of the New Patriotic Party, Nii Noi Nortey, an Independent Candidate, and Madam Eva Lokko of the Progressive People’s Party were seriously campaigning to capture the seat while the NDC was fighting in court.

“When two elephants fight, it is the grass that suffers,” Alhaji Alema said, adding that the situation had created the impression that the NDC was not effective in the constituency.

He advised the foot-soldiers not to undermine each other but to do all they could to ensure a victory for the NDC in the November elections.

Alhaji Alema called on the youth who were getting discouraged by the court case to stand firm pending the final determination.

Mr Justice Amarlai Tetteh, the Constituency Treasurer, told the GNA that it was only through collaboration between the supporters and constituency executives that the NDC could achieve its target in the election.

He warned against activities that were becoming detrimental to the progress of the party and called on the foot-soldiers to exercise restraint while the leadership intervened to resolve the matter.
