Bimbila NPP parliamentary : Zaruk to fill nomination form tomorrow – Chairman Samba

The NPP Northern Regional Chairman, Mohammed Adam Bantima Samba has disclosed that the NPP parliamentary candidate hopeful, Alhaji Ahmed Zaruk will be filling and signing portions of his nomination form.

According to the regional chairman, the forms which is the bone of contention will be sent to the party constituency office where the Ahmed Zaruk’s supporters vandalized to register their displeasure for not including the his name in the shortlisted names for vetting.

“Nobody is preventing anyone from contesting the primaries. We only want the right thing to be done. And that is why we are asking that he should fill the forms are the office to deter others in future. So he will be doing that tomorrow. Some regional executives will be in the constituency to over that”, chairman told radio Tamale’s Fuseini Safianu on phone.

His comments came after Mr. Zaruk apologized to the NPP leadership both in the constituency and at the regional levels, accepting responsibility for the challenges currently going on in the party

On January 2 this year, some supporters of Alhaji Zaruk vandalized some properties belonging to the party in the Bimbila constituency, where they massed up on Tuesday evening, demanding reasons why candidate’s name was removed from the list containing names of persons to be vetted.

They burnt tyres and pelted stones at the office. It took the intervention of the military to disperse the angry supporters.

In an interview with Citi News, some youth said, “We want the two of them to contest. If the MP claims that he’s working for the constituency, if you know you have the base here, why is he running away from the contest? We are in a democracy; we have to choose, and whoever will win will represent the party. We will accept and support the person. We haven’t gone for the vetting, and you have already removed his name, on what basis? We want to know why his name is removed from the list.”
