Manaf Ibrahim, an aggrieved aspirant in the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Asawase constituency Parliamentary primary has secured an interim injunction from the Kumasi High Court to restrain the party from going ahead with Saturday’s Extraordinary Delegates Conference with Alidu Seidu as the sole contender.
The Vetting Committee disqualified Manaf Ibrahim from the contest and therefore leaving Alidu Seidu, who is also the Asokore Mampong Municipal Chief Executive as the sole contender.
The party has therefore planned to endorse Alidu Seidu through popular acclamation on Saturday.
But on Thursday, Manaf Ibrahim secured an interim injunction from the Kumasi High Court to restrain the party from conducting the primary.
Meanwhile, the Ashanti Regional Secretary of NPP, Mr Sam Payne and the General Secretary, Mr John Boadu have explained in separate radio interviews that the party was yet to be served with the injunction.
