Osei-Bonsu Reacts To Dismissal From NPP
Mr Osei Bonsu, former First Vice-Chairman of the Nkawkaw Constituency branch of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said his commitment to support Mr Seth Adjei-Baah to win the Nkawkaw seat as an independent candidate in the December parliamentary election remains unshakeable despite his dismissal from the party.
"My dismissal from the NPP will not in any way affect my support for Mr Adjei-Baah who to all intent and purposes has demonstrated considerable commitment to the welfare of the people in the area,"he said.Mr Bonsu who said this in an interview in reaction to his dismissal from the party in a letter signed on August 6, by the constituency chairman pointed out that no amount of coercion would dampen his enthusiasm to campaign for Mr Adjei-Baah, alias " Shaaba" to win the forthcoming polls.
According to him, the decision of the constituency executive to dismiss him and the Women's Organiser had rather hardened their resolve to go all out to ensure that the aspiring Member of Parliament records a resounding victory in the election."Nobody can stampede me into backing down on my support for Mr Adjei-Baah, and for that matter the action taken by the executive has rather strengthened my resolve to campaign for Mr Adjei-Baah.
The dismissed NPP activist said the campaign for Mr Adjei-Baah to wrest the seat from the incumbent MP had enlisted many supporters, especially those who had received massive financial support from "Shaaba" in previous years.He said the time had come for the constituency to decide who should represent them in parliament and would not take kindly to people who had embarked on a campaign of vilification of the independent candidate and his supporters.
"After all, Ghana is a democratic country where people are free to associate themselves with any person or organisations of their choice for a common cause," Mr Bonsu said.He called on the numerous supporters of Mr Adjei-Baah to remain calm and campaign across the constituency to encourage the people to vote massively for him in the election
