According to the group such allegations was one of the causes for the Party unimpressive performance in the Region at just ended 2020 Presidential and Parliamentary elections of Ghana.
Speaking to the media in the wake of the allegations, Master Issah Adama Waahu and Mr Suglo Nurideen wondered how a Regional Minister could singularly work against the fortunes of the party in the Region when all constituencies executives, Polling Station officers including regional executives were part of the campaign team?
The Progressive Activists indicated that “honest and genuine research should be conducted into the performance of the NPP in the Region and not unwarranted allegations against hard working people”.
The group also averred that: “Some Constituency and Regional Executives worked against some of the Parliamentary Candidates in the Region, some Parliamentary Candidates were also sabotaged by former MPs who were defeated during the primaries in the Region.”
Stressing “a very cheap way to account for the performance of NPP in the Upper West Region is to blame a hard working Regional Minister rather than conduct a genuine research?…Dr Hafiz Bin Salih has promoted peace and cohesion in the Region and also brought about tremendous Development in various facets of the local economy in the Upper West Region and therefore called on the public to treat the allegations against Dr Hafiz with disdain.”
The Group further indicated that some new entrants to the NPP in the Region in recent years were behind the empty allegations making the rounds in the media and have vowed to expose them in subsequent statements.
