The Northern Regional first Vice Chairman of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Joseph Amuzu has finally resigned from the party to contest as an independent candidate at the Saboba constituency in this year's parliamentary after being disqualified to contest in last year's NDC primaries.
The decision was as a result of intense pressure mounted on him by a section of NDC supporters in the constituency.
Mr. Joseph Amuzu and his supporters have however described the disqualification as unfair, which they alleged the incumbent Member of Parliament Hon. Joseph Ninkpe is the architect behind.
On many occasions, Youth groups in the Saboba constituency called on the party's regional and national leadership to reverse their decision and organize a parliamentary primaries at the constituency but that proved futile.
Last month, the youth groups mobilized resources to pick a parliamentary nomination form for the Mr. Amuzu and asked him to resign as the first Vice Chairman of the party to go independent. The Vice NDC Chairman agreed and filed the nomination form and is optimistic of winning the parliamentary seat of the Saboba constituency. However the NDC leadership in the region have confirmed his resignation to Rainbow Radio's Prince Kwame Tamakloe, saying he has taken a decision and the party cannot stop him but to wish him well in his contest.
