The Member of Parliament for Manhyia North, Collins Owusu Amankwah and the Ashanti Regional Vice-Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Kwabena Nsekyire have been engaged in a war of words.
The vice-chairman accused the MP of of lagging since he lost his bid to represent the party as a member of parliament in the December 2020 elections.
Victor Osei Poku, an aide to the MP responded to the allegations of the vice-chairman in a signed statement saying his assertion wasn’t true.
The MP’s aide later turned the heat on the vice-chairman who he accused of doing nothing for the party since he was voted into office. “What has been his contributions to our great Party since we voted him as Regional 1st Vice Chairman?”, Victor Osei Poku quizzed.
Victor continued to defend the MP, saying “the Member of Parliament, throughout the registration processes, has visited all polling centres across the constituency to monitor the process of which pictures and videos are available to this effect. At every registration centre he visited, he donated nose masks, alcohol based hand sanitizers and some amount of monies to the electoral officers to ensure smooth running of the process.”
