RE: Tension looms in Western Region NPP over Afeku's 'appointment'

We write to respond to a malicious article on ghanaweb purported to tarnish the hard earned reputation, and character of Hon. Catherine Abelema Afeku-MP elect, Evalue Ajomoro Gwira Constituency.

We state under no uncertain terms that the allegations are unfounded, and must be treated with the uttermost contempt it deserves.

These allegations were the ones fiercely used by opponents of Hon.. Catherine during the primaries and subsequently by the NDC in the 2016 elections which they lost miserably.

The good people of Evalue Ajomoro Gwira were tired of these rehashed allegations and for the second time voted for Hon.. Catherine and the NPP, a victory which was not an easy task.

The NDC led by a political contractor Mr. Essien on their rallies and radio programs made this allegation of skirt and Blouse, In fact the failed and defeated NDC MP also made this propaganda. We in the NPP challenged them to provide evidence and to date nothing of evidential value was provided.

We are therefore livid that the faceless writer will use the same allegation to discredit Hon.. Catherine Afeku, at a time that the president elect is considering hardworking and competent people to form his government.

Hon.. Catherine Afeku is a loyal member of the NPP, she is hardworking and likened to the late Hon.. Gladys Asthma ( may her soul rest in peace) in the NPP. These allegations can only come from shamefully, defeated opponents of Hon. Catherine who are jealous of the fortunes of the MP elect and the NPP in Evalue Ajomoro Gwira and the entire Nzemaland, therefore clutching to straws as they see themselves drowning.

We call on our teaming supporters and sympathisers to remain calm, stay focused and have faith in Hon. Catherine and Nana Akufo - Addo.

We have hope in his Excellency Nana Akufo -Addo that in his own wisdom, he will reward the loyalty and hard work of Hon. Afeku to the admiration of Ewulaemo and the people of Nzema and the Western Region

We thank the Regional Chairman and the secretary for issuing a swift response to that mischievous allegations.

Together we say " We are united in Victory"

Thank you
