: MPs Storm Nkoranza

By Daily Guide

EIGHT NEW Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentarians have stormed the Nkoranza North constituency to interact with members of the party in preparation for the impending bye-election, following the resignation of the MP for the area, Mr. Eric Amoateng.

Led by the District Chief Executive of Nkoranza, Mr. James Appiah Awuah, the Members of Parliament (MPs) paid courtesy calls on some chiefs of the area and met with party executives to strategize for the bye-election.

The MPs were Hon. Maxwell Kofi Jumah, Asokwa, Hon Opare Ansah, Suhum, Kofi Frimpong, Kwabre East and Sarfo Mensah, Asutifi North.

The rest were Ben Kofi Aye, Upper Denkyira, Isaac Kwame Asiamah Atwima-Mponua, Kojo Opare Hammond, Adenta and Hon Simon Osei-Mensah, Bosomtwe.

Wherever they went, large numbers of NPP supporters came out to welcome them amidst singing and dancing.

Speaker after speaker called on the electorate of Nkoranza North to vote massively for the NPP so that the party could continue its good work in the constituency.

The MPs referred the electorate to the extension of electricity to almost all the nooks and cranny of the constituency as well as the introduction of the National Health Insurance Scheme and the school feeding programme.

As the entourage moved from one town to the other, NDC party vans on top of which loud speakers were mounted, were also seen criss-crossing the constituency.

The NPP “warlords” visited Dromankese, Boama, Dromankuma, Busunyah, and Bonte.

Speaking to Daily Guide at Kranka, the NPP constituency Chairman, Mr. Yaw Abdulai said he was sure the constituents would not disappoint the NPP because apart from the numerous development projects embarked upon by Government in the constituency, the people were enjoying absolute peace.

He said the performance of Mr. Amoateng during his short stay in Parliament had proved beyond reasonable doubt that any MP on NPP ticket would excel.

Meanwhile, both the NDC and the NPP were still working behind the scenes to get winnable candidates for the impending bye-election.
