Korley Klotey election: Addison petitions Kwabena Agyepong

Embattled lawyer Philip Addison is doing everything possible to get the hierarchy of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to address his grievances.
He is currently at the party’s headquarters ready to present an election petition concerning the Korle Klottey parliamentary polls to the General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong for redress.
He is accompanied by over a hundred delegates and party followers.
Among the issues he wanted the party to address include; the illegalities in the entire election process; uncertain date for voting and the fact that half of the delegates did not vote in the party’s Korle Klottey parliamentary primary.
Mr. Addison was last Tuesday turned down by the flagbearer of the elephant family, Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo, when he stormed his Nima residence to petition him over the Korle Klottey parliamentary polls.
He was therefore directed to channel his grievances to the party’s General Secretary for redress.
Pollster and Editor-In-Chief of the Daily Dispatch newspaper, Ben Ephson, described the flagbearer’s move as spot on and noted that should other leading members of the NPP follow suit, it will be a good start for uniting the Danquah-Busia-Dombo tradition as they prepare to form a formidable unit for the 2016 general elections.
Lawyer Philip Addison lost his bid to become the party’s candidate for the 2016 parliamentary polls when he polled 22 votes against his main competitor, Nii Noi Nortey, who garnered 393 votes to win the contest.
A third candidate, Nii Adjei Tawiah, polled 19 votes.
Mr. Addison said he pulled out of the race at the last hour after realizing that the organization of the polls was tilted towards a particular candidate.
