Some aggrieved supporters of Michael Nii Yarboi, a disqualified parliamentary candidate in the Odododiodioo Constituency, have vandalised property at the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Headquarters in Accra.
According to reports, the angry supporters dumped refuse in front of the party headquarters, disrupting traffic flow.
Some of the supporters also hurled bricks and other missiles, damaging windows of buildings at the party headquarters.
On Wednesday, the opposition NDC’s Functional Executive Committee (FEC) barred Michael Nii Yarboi from contesting in the upcoming parliamentary elections at Odododiodiooo in the Greater Accra Region.
This comes after the FEC completed its investigation into the violence that erupted during the parliamentary aspirants’ vetting on October 13, 2023.
Aggrieved supporters, protesting perceived unfairness, reportedly destroyed party properties, including chairs and an air conditioner, and threw stones at the vetting committee.
The FEC, relying on a report submitted by the Special Committee tasked with probing the Odododiodioo violence, announced the disqualification of Michael Nii Yarboi.
“That Mr Michael Nii Yarboi is not qualified by the provisions of article 41 (8) (b) of the constitution of the NDC and therefore cannot contest in the Parliamentary elections in Odododiodioo Constituency, “a press statement issued by the General Secretary of NDC, Fifi Kwetey stated.
Meanwhile, the police have moved in to calm the situation.
