Story By Iddrisu Kumbundoo

A parliamentary candidate aspirant of the New Patriotic Party in Bimbilla has taken his fight against possible disqualification to the National Hierarchy of the governing party.

Hajj Ahmed Zaruk Nuhu, who faces being withdrawn from the January 27 primaries, following his refusal to attend to unfilled portions of his nomination forms, has written to the General Secretary of the party, demanding that he is allowed to join the upcoming primaries regardless of the issues surrounding his papers.

Hajj Zarouk Ahmed in his petition to Justin Koduah Frimpong cited lack of fairness on the part of constituency and regional executives in the process leading up to the internal contest. He particularly accused the regional chairman of the party of using mafia tactics to intimidate aspirants to shelve their parliamentary ambitions to allow for his favoured candidates to go uncontested.

According to the candidate, the Chairman grew discontent and vowed to do everything within his power to frustrate his candidature after he[Samba] unsuccessfully persuaded him at various meetings to quit for current MP and Defense  Minister, Dominic Nitiwul, to go unopposed.

Hajj Zaruk said true the words of Chairman Samba, the process he found smooth soon became chaotic beginning with his nomination forms which he filled and submitted and same carefully studied and passed by executive as having no problem was discovered to have some pages left unfilled.

 His name was subsequently omitted from the list of candidates to be vetted for the primaries and the decision to have unfilled portions filled at his appearance before the vetting panel was also rejected by the regional Chairman who insisted the form be sent back to his constituency for the anomalies to be corrected and sent back to regional secretariat.

Hajj Zarouk who declined to travel back home to fill the unfilled portions of his nomination form said the action of the constituency and regional executives of the party showed they lack goodwill and impartiality, hence his decision to take his case to the national secretariat.

In his petition, the candidate also demanded that Chairman Samba and his followers be barred from involving themselves in the process leading up to the primaries in the Bimbilla Constituency.

He also wants the party to restrain the constituency executives, in particular, the constituency secretary and regional chairman from dealing in any way in the process leading up to the parliamentary elections.
