Korley Klottey youth ask executive to speedily address dispute


Accra, Jan. 28, GNA – Some concerned NDC youths of the Klottey Korley Constituency have petitioned the National Executive body of the party to help halt the unlawful attacks being made on Dr. Zanetor Agyemang Rawlings, the party’s parliamentary candidate for the area.

The concerned youths clad in attires embossed with Dr. Zanetor’s image besieged the party’s headquarters to register their displeasure at the petitioned filed against her at her court.

The petition follows a fresh suit filed at the Accra High court by Nii Armah Ashietey the defeated incumbent Member of Parliament for the Constituency.

Nii Ashietey is asking the court to nullify the candidature of Dr Agyemang Rawlings, as the elected Member of Parliament for the general election in November.

The first suit, filed by four members of the party, sought to challenge the eligibility of Dr. Zanetor Rawlings on the grounds that her name could not be found in the voter’s register during the NDC primary, was thrown out by the trial judge for lack of merit.

Mr. Samuel Constant Kwaku, the chairman of the concerned Youths of the Constituency, appealed to the leaders of the party to resolve the issues causing the recent divisions at the constituency.

‘We wish to state that we are very aggrieved and are losing our patience over this matter,’ he stated.

He said should no action be taken by the executives of the party, they would take legal means to address the matter themselves.

“Hon. Ashietey and his people failed to help the constituency but Dr. Zanetor has already started doing a lot of development, which includes building day care centers for all markets within the constituency, and has been organising free health care screening for over 5000 people, and providing skills training for the youth and many more.

“We will not bow to their … acts to prevent Zanetor from succeeding, we will take all the necessary steps to ensure that evil never prevails,’ Mr Kwaku said.

Mr. Kofi Adams, the National organiser of the NDC, received the petition, on behalf of the party, and assured them that the national executives would look into it and address them accordingly.

‘As far as the national executives are concerned we have elected a candidate, and that is what we know but we will look into your grievances during our meeting and address them,’ he said.
