The acting General Secretary of the United Progressive Party (UPP), Bukari Isahaku has described as false, suggestions by the Party’s Presidential candidate in the last election, Akwasi Addae Odike that he is the founder of the Party.
He said Mr. Odike cannot hold himself out as the founder of the UPP as the laws of the country with regards to the formation of political parties does not allow one person to own or form a political party, adding that there are founding fathers of the party scattered across all the regions of the country.
Mr. Bukari said the party is bigger than Mr. Odike and that it has decided to expel him from the part for varied offences he has committed over time.
According to him, Mr. Odike has stolen party funds and properties including vehicles that were donations given to the party during the electioneering period and has refused to account for same even upon persistent calls by the party hierarchy for him to do so.
‘’He has done so many wrong thins against the party and several invitations to him to come and meet the party hierarchy to address these matters has fallen on death ears. He has completely refused to see reason to come and answer to some of the issues and to get them resolved where possible and so there was no option but to expel him from the party. He can decide to go and form a new party, that is his problem’’ he said on Accra based okay Fm and monitored by BestNewsGH.com
The party, he said will not condone and entertain anyone who performs or transacts business with the former flagbearer of the party and that such people will have themselves to blame.
