Pressure is being mounted on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo from within the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the South Dayi constituency of the Volta region, not to re-nominate rejected District Chief Executive nominee for the area, Madam Ella Boateng.
Madam Boateng, who was handed an outright rejection by Members of the South Dayi District Assembly during her first confirmation poll last month, is hopeful of a second chance from the President.
However, some executives of the party who have opposed the woman’s nomination from day one, on basis of she not being a loyal member of the NPP in the South Dayi constituency, are putting pressure on President Akufo-Addo to reconsider any decision to re-nominate her for the top political job at the local level.
The South Dayi NPP Communication director, Daniel Kaklaku, told a press conference at Dzemeni on Monday that, Madam Ella Boateng was a not good choice for the DCE position in the area, as she is not the favourite of the party’s grass root.
‘We feel very much disrespected and ignored by the party regional and national office, when we protest against the nomination Ms. Ella Boateng as DCE. Even after her rejection by the assembly members, there are indications that she will be re-nominated. We want to state that, this will not augur well for the party.’
The NPP’s Constituency first chairman, Mr. Humphrey Amoako, also indicated that, contrary to Madam Boateng’s claim of being a member of the party for about ten years, she was never seen at any meeting or gathering of the NPP over the period, and as such does not deserve the reward of a DCE.
He noted therefore that, they will go all length to ensure she is not given a second chance by the President.
