Former Mayor for Tamale Hon Iddrisu Musah a.k.a “Musah Superior” has called on NPP NEC to institute strict disciplinary measures against candidates found engaging in vote buying during elections.
He said at a press briefing held in Kumasi on Monday 10th January 2021 that vote buying is alien to NPP and that the party NEC should deal with persons who go about selling or buying votes.
Hon “Musah Superior” noted clearly that the foregoing political canker which characterizes the status-quo doesn’t present a good portrait of the party.
He said that “vote buying is unacceptable” and he will therefore not entertain that if given the nod as the general Secretary of NPP.
“It’s a crime to bribe people to vote for you…Any delegate who takes money to vote for somebody has failed the party and has failed himself as well”.
Sharing his vision, Hon “Musah Superior” who is also the former aide to President Akuffo-Addo and presently Deputy CEO- Ghana Forestry Commission said he will ensure strict discipline right from the grass root to the national level.
He pledged to make sure that all elections and primaries are conducted transparently , giving no room whatsoever for unnecessary disqualification.
“All persons who qualify will be supported. Those with bad records will not be allowed to contest to represent the party”.
The former Mayor for Tamale said he will work hard to earn 180 seats in Parliament.
“My brother look at what is happening in Parliament. It should tell us that we need a new innovative strategy for 2024 elections and this new innovative strategy require a person like me. Somebody who can articulate the vision of the party proper. Somebody who can articulate the vision of the presidential candidate proper and somebody who can galvanise the energies of the NPP people to win the elections”.
