Private legal practitioner, Ace Ankomah has described former Member of Parliament for the Asokwa constituency, Maxwell Kofi Jumah as indiscipline for allegedly tearing apart the voter register being used for the ongoing New Patriotic Party (NPP)  parliamentary primaries in the Asokwa constituency.

Mr. Kofi Jumah is reported to have torn apart the voter register on suspicion that it has been doctored to favour incumbent, Patricia Appiagyei.

He was subsequently arrested by the police as party officials tried to maintain order.

According to Ace Ankomah who spoke on Citi FM, Kofi Jumah’s action was not befitting for someone who wishes to be a people’s representative in Parliament. He indicated that the former Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly boss should have followed due procedures to register his displeasure rather than take the laws into his own hands.

There has been a long standing feud between the two contenders for the seat, probably accounting for the tension surrounding the constituency’s primaries.

The NPP is electing parliamentary candidates for the 2016 elections.

The party said “only the Registers used for the last 18th October Presidential Primaries shall be used for this election” and that at constituencies where only one candidate filed at the close of nomination, the candidate is deemed to have been duly elected unopposed.
