NDC’s Council of Elders drags key Ashanti executives over 2020 elections

“Even though no concrete evidence was established that the Regional Chairman and the Regional Secretary collected monies from some NPP officials, some party members including the Regional Women’s Organizer and the Regional Organizer were convinced that both the Regional Chairman and Secretary compromised their positions to the detriment of the NDC Party, due to the manner these two executives handled the whole election process in the Region,” a copy of the committee report.

Again, the report said: “The Ashanti Regional Organizer also informed the committee that the Regional Chairman, Regional Secretary and himself travelled to Axim to attend a funeral and the Regional Secretary informed him that the Land cruiser they used for the journey was bought and donated to regional Chairman (Nana Kwasi )by an NPP contractor”

The seven (7) member fact-finding committee was set up in January following the barrage of concerns about the 2020 electoral figures obtained by the party in the region, which suggested that the figures were allegedly manipulated.

The Ashanti Regional Council of Elders put together the committee to probe the happenings. The committee was also tasked to come out with recommendations, which could be implemented to improve the NDC election results in the Ashanti Region.

Below are some of the key conclusions contained in the report

There was no proper coordination among the Regional Executives. No teamwork and factions were created as a result of that. These factions operated to their own advantage.

The Regional Chairman was not aware of the people supposed to represent the party at the EC collation room.

The Chairman (Nana Kwasi) was very evasive when he appeared before the committee. At a point when a question was put to him, he retorted arrogantly that he was not prepared to answer the question until the committee informed him of the source of the information.

In general the Regional Chairman exhibited gross incompetence, he seemed not to know what was happening before, during and after the 2020 elections. He was not on top of his work as Regional Chairman. He left everything in the care of the Regional Secretary who also manipulated the system to his advantage.

The Treasurer who was supposed to handle all financial issues was completely left out.
