An aspiring parliamentary candidate contesting in the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) upcoming primaries in the Ashaiman constituency, Ernest Norgbey is challenging those questioning his eligibility to go to court if they want.
The Chronicle Newspaper in last Monday’s edition headlined a story: ‘NDC Group fights Portuphy boy.’
[contextly_sidebar id=”xsMEftHSYmrQf2Xe7R6mbbfST6iVQ6P1″]The paper in the story leveled several allegations against the parliamentary hopeful, Mr Ernest Norgbey claiming that he is being sponsored by the NDC’s National Chairman, Kofi Portuphy.
In the said publication, the paper claimed that a group of party loyalists led by one Francis Awudu purported to be working for an aspirant, threatened to go to court to restrain Mr Norgbey from contesting the party’s November 21 primaries.
But speaking to Citi News, Mr Norgbey said the allegations against him are not true and must be disregarded.
“I dare them to go to court or petition any higher body within the party if they want to. I know they will not succeed because their claims have no basis and lack credibility,” he said.
Mr. Norgbey also said he is not moved by the threats from loyalists of his opponents as they are without merit.
He said the allegations of he being sponsored by the NDC national chairman, Mr Kofi Portuphy is not true.
“I filed to contest in this parliamentary primary elections on merit and my capability to afford to fund my campaign,” he added
Mr. Norgbey continued that, the people making the allegations are ill-informed as they do not know much about the Ashaiman Constituency.
Mr Norgbey advised the group trying to dent his reputation in the constituency to desist from the dirty campaign as it will not auger well for all.
