Alhaj Saed Sinare on Friday 21st October, 2022 withdrew from the contesting the 2022 vice chairmanship race, asking the party to refund his nomination fees.
‘I, Alhaji Saed Sinare write to your high office to bring to your attention that, I have withdrawn my nomination as a national vice-chairperson for the upcoming 2022 national executive elections of our esteemed party’, a letter addressed to the General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Aseidu Nketia read.
Although the Alhaj Said did not provide expressly his reason(s) to step aside as national vice chairman of the NDC, and subsequent withdrawal from the race vice chairmanship, he has plainly requested the party to take steps to refund to him his filing fees.
According to an official of the party, the fee for nomination and expression of interest forms are non-refundable.
But The HAWK independently report that the business mogul decided to pull out of the leadership of the National Democratic Congress because he feels betrayed and letdown by the General Secretary, Johnson Aseidu Nketia.
According to a confidant of Alhaj Sinare, Asiedu Nketia singlehandedly okayed a report of a Committee of the Greater Accra Branch of the party without the inputs of the Functional Executive Committee (FEC).
He said, Aseidu Nketia at a FEC meeting downplayed the committee’s report, stating that, they were going to constitute national committee to review the report of the regional committee, only for him (Aseidu Nketia) to turn around and go and issue a letter reinstating Ahmed Tahiru.
Ahmed Tahiru, was suspended indefinitely from his position as Ayawaso North Constituency Chairman after a botched attempt to implicate Alhaji Sinare over his missing firearms.
Recall the National Vice-Chairman was reported to the police by Ahmed Tahiru for arranging for weapon supplies for use to create chaos in the Northern Region during the December polls.
Upon that report, Sinare was charged with three counts of conspiracy to commit crime and unlawful possession of weapon and ammunitions by the Police.
Adducing evidence to support his claim, Ahmed Tahiru presented an AK-47 and pump action guns to the police to be used as exhibit of the arms distributed by Alhaj Sinare.
Luckily, Saed Sinare had logged a formal report of his missing pump action at the Cantonment Police Station about a month before Tahiru’s complain.
Withdrawing the criminal case against him, the prosecutor, Seargent Thomas Safo, told the Kaneshie District Court presided over by Ms Ama Adomako Kwakye on Thursday, 29 October 2020 that the prosecution is withdrawing the case upon “further development in the matter”.
The judge accepted the request and discharged Alhaji Sinare.
