Ten Members of Parliament (MPs) of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have visited the Nkoranza North Constituency to interact with the people.

They assured them that the party (NPP) was solidly behind them in spite of the absence of their MP, Mr Eric Amoateng, who is in a US jail for an alleged drug-related offence .

The MPs, who visited communities such as Busunya, Dromankese and Buabeng-Fiema, were led by the MP for Bosome-Freho, Nana Yaw Ofori-Kuragu.

Nana Ofori-Kuragu told the Daily Graphic after the visit that the delegation was received by enthusiastic crowd in all the towns and villages visited, with songs and drumming.

Nana Ofori-Kuragu said the delegation informed the people of Parliament's decision to wait until the US court had come out with its verdict on the case before deciding whether to hold a by-election or not.

He said the delegation assured the people that although their MP was not in the country, his colleague MPs would continue to visit the area to rekindle their spirits .

Nana Ofori-Kuragu said the MPs also met some chiefs in the area and the Nkoranza district chief executive (DCE) and advised them to take good care of the numerous projects Mr Amoateng had initiated.
