New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary primaries are currently underway across the country but the voting exercise has been put on hold at Niiboiman Electoral Area of the Okaikwei North constituency.

According to the Constituency’s Deputy Organiser, Eric Ohene, the exercise has been put on hold to allow health officials to fumigate the environment before voters would be allowed to continue.
