The Ningo Chiefs have vowed to complicate things for the NDC Parliamentary nominee, Sam George during his campaign in the constituency.
Chiefs in the Ningo Prampam constituency are still furious with the NDC Parliamentary nominee Sam George, for his ‘disrespectful’ statements against the Mankralo of the Ningo Traditional Area Nene Kanor Atiapah III. The Ningo Chiefs have vowed to complicate things for him during his campaign in the constituency.
The aspiring MP had reportedly described the Mankralo as ‘lawless’. According to reports, Sam George had made the comment in reaction to the Mankralo’s decision who protested the installation of new ECG prepaid meters. The comments have angered the Ningo chiefs who say they will take a decision that will make things difficult for him in his political campaigns.
The Mankrolo’s brother Jonathan Atiapah have also expressed his dissatisfaction concerning the the young aspirant’s comments. He wondered why someone who is only a parliamentary nominee ‘intervened’ in such issue without allowing the incumbent Member of Parliament, E.T Mensah and the District Chief Executive to deal with the problem.
According to Jonathan Appiah, every indigene of Ningo area is angry with Sam George, because he has stepped on a lot of toes with his comment. They are also angry with the way and manner he went on radio to castigate the traditional leaders. He said that Ningo traditional rulers are planning to organize a council meeting where they’ll deliberate on how to make it extremely difficult for him (Sam George) to hold any political campaign in the area.
Sam George Is Still On Suspension
If the Ningo chiefs’ decision prevails, it would be a very tough race for Sam George who at the moment is serving a suspension by the NDC for misconduct. It was a very tough competition during the NDC’s primary held on November 22 last year, between George and the incumbent MP, Enoch Teye-Mensah. The two had accused each other of scheming to rig the polls.
The accusations had escalated to verbal exchanges which then got physical with Mr. George allegedly receiving a punch in the eye from an aide to Mr. E.T. Mensah. He was therefore suspended on December 1, 2015.
