The attention of the campaign team of John Boadu has been drawn to an article published on kasapafmonline, titled, “Is It Incompetence Or A Scheme To Rig Elections – John Boadu Questioned”, purportedly written by one Wilhemina Kumi.
The article, makes a lot of false claims and leveled spurious allegations against the person of the General Secretary, John Boadu, who is set to receive overwhelming endorsement from the party delegates to continue his work as General Secretary.
The author alleges, without providing any modicum of proof, that, John Boadu, is scheming with his cohorts to rig the upcoming delegates elections. And that, in furtherance of that, he [John Boadu] has kept the national delegates album to his chest, not allowing other candidates, to access same.
It went further to level other substantiated allegations against John Boadu, whom the author, accused of gross incompetence. Much as these unprovoked attacks, ostensibly coming from our opponents, are deserving to be treated with contempt, for raising absolutely no basis, the campaign team of John Boadu, is nonetheless, minded to respond and set the records straight.
First of all, the people behind this mischievous publication, clearly do not have any appreciation about the party’s internal processes, and are also deliberately refusing to read the party’s guidelines for the conduct of delegates conference.
Per the guidelines, all the election-related aspects of the conference, are handled by the National Elections Committee, which is chaired by no less a person than Hon Peter Mac Manu, former National Chairman and Campaign Manager. The Committee, which works closely with the Electoral Commission of Ghana, is composed of party stalwarts whose integrity cannot be doubted.
To suggest that the members of the elections-committee have thrown the rules and regulations for the elections to the dogs, and have allowed themselves to be remote-controlled by John Boadu, who himself is a candidate in the elections, is indeed the biggest insult that can be meted out to these great men and women of honor in our Party.
The guidelines for the conduct of the national officers elections contain copious provisions that assure and guarantee the integrity of the process, and all aggrieved party members and candidates are implored to seek redress through these processes, including even petitioning the Dan Botwe-led National Appeals Committee, if they are so minded.
No redress in this process can be obtained on social media, and by spewing baseless allegations and casting aspersions at some officers. The NPP is a disciplined party. Mr. John Boadu is focused on his campaign, which is receiving overwhelming reception from party delegates across the country.
In a related development, our attention has been drawn to a broadcast message being sent to party delegates claiming that, John Boadu, had given the Greater Accra Regional Chairman and Regional Organizer an amount of 3 billion cedis to bribe Constituency executives. This is absolutely UNTRUE and another failed propaganda from our desperate opponents.
It is interesting that the very people who claim they do not know the party delegates because no album has been provided to them, are able to craft such diabolic propaganda messages and send to them directly to the contacts of party delegates. How ironic!
We conclude by stating that John Boadu will not be detracted by persons whose campaigns have virtually collapsed, and are looking for people to blame for their woes. The discerning members and delegates of this Party appreciate the goods works of the experienced, tried results-driven and experienced John Boadu, and would renew his mandate, by the grace of God.
