For Immediate Release
ALLEGATION OF FINANCIAL INDUCEMENT OF CONCERN YOUTH GROUPS OF NPP (CYG-NPP) BY NORTHERN REGIONAL EXECUTIVES OF NPP.
We wish to unequivocally deny the concocted allegation making waves in the NPP circles that our recent silence is borne out of financial inducement received from northern regional executives. It is a mere allegation emanating from the figment of the imaginations of some bootlickers of the regional executives.
Our silence is to critically reflect on our journey so far and the way forward. We must also admit that we were faced with inadequate funding but we want to assure you that we have made inroads again as far as funding is concern and we should bounce back very soon. We want to use this opportunity to thank all those who willingly took steps to financial support the group. Even though those financial supports were rejected because of the current fabricated bribery allegation we are hearing. We pray you find a place in your heart to forgive leadership of the group. We are just been cautious and mindful of controversies which usually accompanied such donations if not careful manage.
We did a little fact findings and it will amaze you the level of rots the chairman Samba lead executive committee is sitting on. In the coming weeks, we will share some of those rots with the general public. Few examples are what we will describe as the stolen of government lands by some executives, the monthly GHC50, 000.00 for the upkeep of the party and the GHC15,000.00 monthly for the running of the party all of which ends up in the pockets of the executives to the detriment of grassroots supporters and the recent awarding of contracts to NDC supporters by chairman Samba.
We are assuring all well-meaning grassroots supporters of NPP in the region who think our political warfare with the regional executives is the only way to correct the numerous menaces facing the party in the region that we will not disappoint them, we will keep pushing until the executives turn their attention to the ordinary grassroots supporters of the party. Thank you
Napadow Clifford Atchulo
(Secretary CYG NPP)
