Information reaching WestAfrica24.com indicates that three NDC Parliamentary candidate aspirants in the Dome-Kwabenya Constituency of the Greater Accra region are constantly indulging in tribal politics to gunner for votes in the upcoming parliamentary primaries.
The three aspirants, Isreal Nornyibey, John Kweku Agbavor and Faustina Elikplim Akurugu are hinging their campaigns on tribal sentiments to ensure that delegates from their tribe vote for them. During their door to door campaign to win the hears of delegates, the three aspirants on different locations were asking delegates to vote for them because their tribe form the majority in the Constituency.
A delegate who spoke on condition of an anonymity said, tribal politics is dangerous, especially for internal party politics and creates division among members.
