One of the disqualified candidates in the Dome-Kwabenya constituency parliamentary vetting of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has alleged that he was disqualified because his father is not a financier of the party.

Isaac Owuraku Amofa who was contesting incumbent Adwoa Sarfo claims some members of the vetting panel asked him what his father can contribute to his campaign should he be given the nod to contest on the ticket of the NPP. He believes because the incumbent’s father, Apostle Dr. Kwadwo Sarfo is rich and can contribute to her campaign, the party decided to push a class agenda.

“Even though I showed them my certificate, they still went ahead to disqualify me under the guise that I didn't show the original certificate.

“Later on, I realised that I was disqualified because my father is not a big man or a party financier. I was asked by some of the members of the committee how I will finance my campaign and what my father brings on board.

“So it’s obvious that some people in the party are bent on pushing a class agenda but that is wrong,” he said on Accra-based Okay FM.

A number of disqualifications have characterised NPP’s vetting process held about a week ago. Apart from Mr. Amofa who has been disqualified, Carlos Ahenkora who sought to contest the Tema West Constituency seat in the Greater Accra Region has also been disqualified.
