The Kwesi-Botchwey led committee is in the region to meet with regional, constituency and branch executives of the party to gather facts on the causes of the defeat of the party in the 2016 elections.

According to starrfmonline The irate youth who are accusing their regional leadership of causing the party’s defeat in the region are demanding that they (the regional officers) do not take part in an arranged meeting with the committee. This is to ensure that they express their opinion without fear.
When the committee members attempted to leave the chaotic scene at Eredec hotel, which is the meeting venue the youth locked them up.
The committee is touring the ten regions of the country to gather facts on the possible reasons that led to the heavy defeat of the umbrella family and President John Mahama in the 2016 elections.
The membership of the committee includes the immediate past Speaker of Parliament Edward Doe Adjaho.
