The governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) Northern Regional Executive Committee, has suspended Issahaku Ibrahim, a Parliamentary aspirant in the Walewale constituency of the Northern Region ahead of its primaries on November 21.
A statement signed by the party’s Regional Secretary, Halid Abdul-Rauf, said Issahaku Ibrahim by his suspension ceases to be a member of the party with effect from November 6.
Without detailed clarification, the statement explained that Issahaku Ibrahim failed to exhaust the party’s laid down procedure to address his grievances over the November 21 parliamentary contest in the Walewale Constituency.
[contextly_sidebar id=”fivUdPzDzmuKOjzaIkmGoVXuEzpH7pgm”]Citi News uncovered that Issahaku Ibrahim sued the party and another aspirant, Abubakari Abdulai Abuba, in a Tamale High Court, hence his suspension.
He sought to compel the party to disqualify Abubakari Abdulai Abuba on grounds that he contested the 2012 parliamentary election on the ticket of the Peoples National Convention (PNC).
The court has since summoned the NDC Regional Executive Committee over the matter.
Attached is the suspension letter.
