It has now emerged that the postponement of the La Dadekotopon constituency executive elections smacked of some invincible hands buying time for a well-greased and fueled pro-Mahama slate for all constituency executive positions.
A pro-Mahama team sheet was highly publicised in Dadekotopon ahead of the oppositional National Democratic Congress (NDC) constituency primaries.
But at the end of the primaries last Saturday at the La Wireless School Park, candidates loyal to presidential hopeful Sylvester Mensah popularly known as Sly swept the polls, leaving pro-Mahama aspirants in agonizing defeat in the first round of the contest.
The second round will be the Greater Regional elections in which incumbent Chairman and Mahama loyalist, Joseph Ade Coker and his allies are highly expected to lose miserably.
Led by known John Mahama (JM) loyalists Dzifa Gunu and TT Kateynor who is also a parliamentary hopeful, the team openly campaigned in all branches, announcing their allegiance to the John Dramani Mahama (JDM) come-back campaign.
They also used the same list to send statements to NDC members that party’s flag bearer hopeful Sly, a prominent member of the Dadekotopon constituency, had no grounds in his own backyard.
