Accra, Jan. 25, GNA – The Amansie East constituency of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Wednesday appealed to Mr Joe Osei-Wusu to stand as the parliamentary candidate instead of going as independent in the coming elections.
‘This would boost the morale of the teaming supporters who are waiting to hear a word from him to start their electioneering campaign’.
A statement signed by Mr Kweku Mensah, Secretary, and copied to the Ghana News Agency (GNA), said ‘ we humbly ask Mr. Osei-Wusu to respond to our appeal to stand in the name of NPP instead of going independent as he did in the last election as our parliamentary candidate within 14 days.’
The statement said the Amansie East trump card is to bring on board the Mr Osei-Wusu into the forefront of the NPP winning-team for the constituency, adding that, ‘it is always difficult to win a major battle without a war commander’.
It said getting more votes to make Nana Akuffo Addo the ultimate winner in the 2012 presidential poll was a concern to the Amansie Society as well as to all stakeholders of the party.
The Amansie East constituency is largely an NPP dominated constituency.
