A group calling itself the Concerned NDC Supporters affiliated to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Salaga South Constituency in the Savannah Region has called on the Regional Disciplinary Committee of the Party to as a matter of urgency withdraw the suspension of their constituency chairman and two others or face their wrath.
The Regional Disciplinary Committee of the National Democratic Congress(NDC) in the Savannah Region suspended the Salaga South constituency chairman and two others following bloody attacks between some party supporters and constituency executives at the Party office in Salaga.
The suspended Party executives are Haruna Salifu alias Connect constituency chairman, Murtala Falalu constituency organizer, and Abubakar Abu Omega constituency communications officer.
The three constituency executives were suspended for three months with immediate effect starting Wednesday, May 19, 2021, under Article 48(1) of the party’s constitution according to a statement signed by the NDC Savannah Regional Secretary, Salifu Be-awuribe.
The angry NDC supporters demanded that the Member of Parliament, Hajia Zuweira Ibrahimah, should be ordered by the leadership of the party to pay for all damages caused by her thugs who stormed the constituency party office and vandalized properties on May 16, 2021.
Addressing a press conference at the party office in Salaga, the spokesperson of the Concerned NDC Supporters, Abdulrahman Mohammed Amin, hinted that should the Regional Executives fail to withdraw the suspension of their constituency chairman and the two others, they cannot guarantee the unity of their Party in the Constituency from now to the 2024 general elections.
“We further admonish the regional executives of the party not to succumb to the parochial interest Honourable Zuweira Ibrahimah to destroy the future of this Party. We have seen it before and we do not want to see it again. The NDC is our Party of choice and we cannot allow it to go along the path of destruction.”
The Concerned NDC Supporters threatened that if their demand is not met they would ensure that no party campaign or activity is held in the Salaga South constituency till 2024.
They warned that any further attack on any of their Party executives will be met with unrelenting fire and fury.
Some supporters of the NDC on Sunday, May 16, 2021, stormed their party office and disrupted a meeting by some constituency executives.
The situation created pandemonium, resulting in the vandalizing of party properties and an alleged firing of gunshots by some unknown persons.
Some constituency executives sustained serious injuries in the process and were quickly sent to the hospital for treatment.
There has been some confusion within the NDC in the Salaga South constituency after the Party’s primary in 2019.
