Executives of the New Patriotic Party, NPP national executives have warned corrupt regional executives of the party for charging unapproved fees. The national executives in a statement warned the regional leaders of the party to desist from charging aspiring parliamentary candidates a supposed “development levy”.

In a statement communicating its disapproval of the acts by the regional executives, the national executives said cautions “are not limited to the fixing of tentative dates for the conduct of the parliamentary primaries, and charging of development levy”.

Read the full statement below.

The attention of the national executive body of the Party has been drawn to various directives issued by some Regional Executive Committees to aspiring candidates on the conduct of the Party’s upcoming parliamentary primaries in “Orphan Constituencies”,

The directives include, but are not limited to the fixing of tentative dates for the conduct of the parliamentary primaries, and charging of ‘development levy’, among others.

While the national executive body acknowledges and appreciates the otherwise good intentions behind these decisions, you are hereby reminded that directives governing the conduct of elections of the Party can only be issued by the National Executive Committee, the appropriate body constitutionally mandated to do so.

Accordingly, all Regional Executive Committees are, by this letter, directed to cease forthwith, the issuance of any directives on the conduct of parliamentary primaries unless and until same have been approved by the National Executive Committee in accordance with the Constitution of the Party.

Again, it is directed that all monies taken from prospective parliamentary candidates pursuant to these unauthorized and unapproved directives be refunded to them in line with the letter and spirit of this communication.

The National Executive body anticipates your usual cooperation.
