It has emerged that some constituents doubling as the New Patriotic Party (NPP) delegates in the Bantema Constituency are unhappy about their Member of Parliament (MP), Francis Asenso-Boakye, who also serves as the Minister of Works and Housing.
According to Ralph Agyapong, a lawyer and the brother of Kennedy Agyapong, Bantema constituents have confided in him their anger.
“I’m always at the Bantama constituency, and according to the constituents they are not happy with the way and manner the MP is managing the place, so, I have to come and take charge
“…if Bantama constituents are listening to me, I want to let them know that I have accepted their calls and I will contest the seat,” he declared his intention to contest in the parliamentary primaries for the NPP in the Bantama constituency.
Ralph Agyapong has disclosed that the grassroots support for his candidacy became evident as people began circulating his campaign posters on social media platforms.
“The way and manner people have been calling me to contest the seat, if I ignore such calls, I might disgrace myself… so when I saw my posters moving around, I called Hon Ken, and he asked me to go and contest and win the seat for Bantama constituency”, Lawyer Ralph Agyapong spoke on Hello FM
