Nhyiaeso MP, Mr. Kennedy Kwasi Kankam
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Polling Station Executives and Opinion Leaders of Nhyieaso Constituency in Ashanti Region have opposed their Member of Parliament (MP) over incompetency.
400 out of 635 Polling Station Executives in addition to Opinion leaders of the constituency say the MP, Mr. Kennedy Kwasi Kankam has brought division, discrimination in leadership among coordinators, Polling Station Executives, Assembly Members therefore he does not qualify to go unopposed neither should he hold the flag of NPP to lead the constituency in the December 2020 Ghana’s General Elections.
The group at a news conference in Kumasi today, May 20, made the statement in reference to speculations gaining grounds within the constituency and report made by Mr. F.F Anto, Ashanti Regional NPP 2ndVice Chairman that President Nana Addo is calling on Mr. Stephen Amoah known popularly as Sticka, Aspiring Parliamentary Candidate also CEO of MASLOC to step down from the impending Parliamentary Primaries for Mr. Kankam to go uncontested.
The infuriated executives claim, NPP is a political Entity which believes in the tenets a democracy therefore a healthy contest in selecting various positions should be greatly remarked.
The group highlighted in a statement available to newstimesgh.com that Sticka has contributed immensely to the NPP both at national and constituency levels so they do not understand why some bigwigs of the party should impose Kamkam on them.
“To our surprise we do not understand why Mr. Stephen Amoah who has contributed immensely to our great party both constituency and national levels should be asked by some bigwigs of the party to step down for Kankam to go unopposed at Nhyiaeso constituency. This totally unacceptable in our political dispensation”, they stated.
The Nhyiaeso NPP Executives claim the MP has lost touch with the people or constituents so there is a great disconnect between him and the constituents as well as Polling Station Executives.
“The man that the good people of Nhyiaeso know right now is Sticka who can win and retain Nhyiaeso seat for the party”, according to the executives.
They added that “If the bigwigs behind Kankam think that he is popular and has performed creditably in the constituency, they should not run from competition, rather they should open floor for Sticka to fairly compete him”.
The group however has pleaded with President Nana Addo to reconsider the alleged decision and allow Mr Stephen Amoah (Sticka) to participate in the upcoming parliamentary primaries elections
