NDC’s former Larger Accra Regional Chairman, Joseph Ade Coker has condemned latest steps of leading member Dr Benjamin Kunbour above the provision of 2020 election collated effects in the possession of celebration management.
After the just-finished election petition, matters pertaining to NDC’s total votes garnered have come up following fears by the rank and file of the bash questioning the availability of these paperwork.
But the most recent pressing comment is by one particular of the party’s bigwigs, Dr Benjamin Kumbour indicating that the party’s Council of Elders has not had entry to the claimed figures.
“Immediately soon after the elections, outcomes were coming, we started out seeing figures. For the standard get together member, you claimed we experienced won the elections as a result of the figures and collation that the get together had done, why is it that those figures did not locate their way to the court…
“Political accountability is vertical and horizontal. Men and women don’t know right now, what precisely are the collated figures,” he informed JoyNews.
This act, in accordance to Mr Coker, is unacceptable next the working experience held by the social gathering best caders who know the approved strategies they should observe to ask for the mentioned election final results.
For the previous NDC Regional Chair in an interview on Pleasure FM, these types of acts should really be expected from anonymous or serial callers and not “an aged human being like Kunbour.”
“Have you observed the NPP coming out to announce to the complete globe the numbers they produced? No, we have a method. Persons need to regard celebration structures…People who have experienced the privilege of currently being ministers of point out, contesting elections will go to the general public and behave this way. They have experienced the privilege of serving high positions so they should really know better.
“The interview you were taking part in on your station has caused a good deal of ripples just about everywhere. But if serial callers ended up doing that, that is fantastic but if an aged man or woman like him wishes to know, he is familiar with what to do. Dr Benjamin Kumbour understands what to do. He is just like any person in the occasion. Appear don’t enable us assign titles to all people. Most people in the NDC whether or not you are a footsoldier, we are all the similar men and women. So a person man or woman can’t make the party. So we need to constantly believe about the collective and not about our person self, ” he advised host Evans Mensah.
Talking on Major Story, Mr Coker explained Dr Kunbour must do the needful by achieving out to the bash executives in purchase to be furnished with the paperwork in concern.
He also mentioned that users of the Council of Elders who ended up present at a three-day retreat at Ho were being furnished with the 2020 election final results – a assembly at which Dr Benjamin Kumbour was absent.
To Mr Ade Coker, Dr Kunbour together with other personalities including Volta Chair of the Council of Elders, Dan Abodapki have failed to check with the party executives for the party’s election effects.
“We have the collated results. I’m shocked why Dr Kunbojr being a member of the Council of Elders has not availed himself or requested the Executives to render account to the Council of Elders. If the Council of Elders is that interested in the figures, they would have questioned. You just really do not go and say you are coming to give figures when they know the predicament and they know what has took place at the occasion.
“The rank and file of the bash have not occur to tell the national executives that we should come to the general public and announce our figures. We have a discussion board exactly where if you desired to know the figures the social gathering experienced garnered you [should’ve attended]. There are structures in the bash exactly where every person need to follow…Over the weekend, there was a retreat and regardless of what we have to know within the get together was built available to us,” he claimed.
He iterated that the failure of the leading caders to verify the said facts from colleagues in the celebration proves that their motion is deliberate.
Each individual member of the occasion he suggests is aware of the actions to be taken to register their grievances consequently, they should really desist from steps that ought to be still left for “those who will have placards on the street.”
“That is what pains me. These are folks who have experienced the privilege of serving the party and they have colleagues in the bash whom they generally discuss to. Are you telling me that the conversation has broken down that they are unable to communicate to their colleagues at the celebration and they have to go to the public and do that? They have colleagues, they meet up with every time. So if they never have an understanding of something, couldn’t they have contacted their colleagues at the levels that they are with them?
“You really do not go to the community, we do not. In particular when you are an elder of the get together,” he extra.
