Joseph Yamin goes to court to stop NPP’s delegates conference at Ashanti RCC

A former National Democratic Congress Regional Secretary in the Ashanti Region, Joseph Yamin, has filed an injunction application to stop the governing New Patriotic Party, from holding its regional delegates conference at the Regional Coordinating Council.

Regional Coordinating Councils serve as both the administrative offices of Regional Ministers and also as their official residences as well.

The NPP in the region had scheduled to hold the conference on Friday at the premises of the Regional Coordinating Council.

But in an exparte injunction application, Mr. Yamin is asking the court to restrain the party from holding the conference at that venue.

The court is expected to hear his argument today, Thursday.

But in what seems like a pre-emptive move, the election committee of the NPP has changed the venue from the Regional Coordinating Council to the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

In an interview with Citi News, Secretary to the NPP’s Elections Committee in the Ashanti Region, Henry Kwabena Kokofu, indicated that the date for the conference has since been changed from Friday to Saturday.

“Yesterday [Thursday], the Committee had a meeting, and judging from developments from some few days back, we have reached a decision to change the venue from the RCC to the Kumasi Sports Stadium, and then also, instead of tomorrow [Friday], we are going for 28th, that is Saturday.”

“There were other decisions. All those arrangements were meant to be tentative. Going forward we have made some variations here and there.”
