The vetting of parliamentary aspirants in the Northern Region for the upcoming New Patriotic Party (NPP) primaries has ended in Tamale, with all 22 aspirants in nine constituencies taking their turns in the vetting process.
The two-day exercise saw aspirants from Saboba, Yendi, Gushegu, Kpandai, Savelugu, Nanton, Bimbila, Wulensi and Tolon partaking in the process.
Speaking to the media, the national organiser for the NPP, Sammy Awuku, described the process as successful. He indicated that the committee will forward the regional report to the National Executive Committee (NEC) for the final decision to be taken.
He said aspirants who have been accused of wrongdoing have been given the opportunity to purge themselves.
“I’m extremely delighted that the Northern aspirants impressed the vetting panel. All those who were accused were also offered the opportunity to clear themselves of the various accusations. It’s been like that in every region we’ve been to.
“So petitions are not new to this process. However, it is the accused person’s ability to speak to the issue and give his side of the story. That also helps us to know the decisions to take,” he stated.
