The NPP youth also accused the DCE and the Youth Employment Coordinator Mohammed Baba of dividing the party and appointing of some youth into the security service.
The youth acted in that manner because the DCE, Alhassan Yabdoo, allegedly caused the arrest of some NPP communicators.
But Mohammed Baba Ousman in an interview on Accra-based Kasapa FM admitted that the recruitment was done in conjunction with some party executives, excluding the constituency chairman.
He explained that he did not consult the constituency chairman because at the time of recruiting the people, Zakaria was still on suspension for working against the interest of the party.
"What I did was that I had to look at those in the villages – and since I am the Youth Organizer, I know those people who worked for the party, and my priority is to get those youth jobs. So, when they apply, I consider those criteria as part of my recruitment. By then he (Zakaria) was on suspension. I did this job in conjunction with some of the executives and the DCE. So, I don’t know what he (Zakaria) is talking about. He (Zakaria) was on suspension and when you are on suspension why should I come and consult you on youth recruitment? He (Zakaria) was only reinstated just two months ago. He was suspended for working against the party’s interest," he said.
He added that he has no one to blame than the Regional Chairman of the NPP, Daniel Bugri Naabu, over the row in the constituency.
"The whole mess is being caused by the Regional Chairman, Bugri Naabu. I blame the Regional Chairman because I can’t think far. I pointed this whole issue to the Chairman that the whole mess being caused in Karaga is caused by you. Because how could you reinstate somebody who caused the parliamentary candidate to lose," he added.
