NDC warns aspirants against providing accommodation for delegates
Ahead of the election, the National Congress Planning Committee of the NDC warned aspirants against the provision of accommodation for delegates in the Youth and Women’s conferences of the Party.
Chairman of the Committee, Alex Segbefia in a statement said it is an unfortunate practice for aspirants contesting in the elections to accommodate delegates when the party had already taken all the necessary steps to ensure all delegates are taken care of during the period of the elections.
“The committee wishes to inform all candidates, delegates, and stakeholders in the impending elections, that detailed prior accommodation arrangements have already been made for all delegates attending the conference. As such, it is outlawed for any candidate to camp or accommodate any delegate outside of the approved and sanctioned accommodation facilities for delegates.”
