The Member of Parliament for Asante Akim Central, Kwame Ayimadu-Antwi, is unhappy with the open contest in the party where sitting Members of Parliament (MPs) are being contested.
According to Hon. Ayimadu-Antwi, unlike the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), experienced MPs like himself are facing fierce competition internally.
“Once you stay in Parliament for long, you get to know the law. Look at what the NDC is doing, they protected all the good materials in the party and I thought that the NPP would follow or copy the example of the NDC but I am not seeing that here.
“We have a whole constituency secretary orchestrating a diabolic plan to remove a peaceful member of Parliament,” Mr Anyimadu-Antwi said in an interview.
Ayimadu-Antwi is currently engaged in a highly competitive race for his seat with Kofi Ofosu Nkansah, the Chief Executive Officer of the National Entrepreneurial and Innovation Programme,
Mr Ofosu Nkansah was on Wednesday, January 10, arrested by the Special Prosecutor for allegedly using funds from the NEIP to fund his campaign.
Felix Amakye, the New Patriotic Party’s Asante Akim Central constituency secretary, had, in an Eyewitness News interview on Citi FM, accused the Asante Akim Central MP of reporting the NEIP CEO to the OSP, a claim the latter vehemently denied.
“I have no clue about what the secretary is alleging, and it is about time for us to do the elections, and the primaries are still around the corner. This is not a do-or-die affair. The secretary has taken sides with one of the contenders and has been speaking passionately, and there is pain in the constituency speaking to delegates.
