Stop imposing candidates on us – Nana Obeng Agyei Saawansan to Ashanti Regional Executives of NPP
Nana Obeng Agyei Saawansan, the ‘Mmoanekohene' of Asante Akyem Agogo has advised Ashanti Regional executives of the New Patriotic Party to stop imposing candidates on their constituents.
This advice came as a result of an interaction he had with Prof. Sam on ADANSE3 98.9 FM’S weekend socio-political program “NÒKWARE MMRE”.
Nana was surprised to have seen that in the history of Asante Akyem North Constituency, it is the first time a Presidential candidate has pulled more votes than the Parliamentary candidate. He stated that this occurrence is as a result of the regional executives imposing candidate on the constituents through all means possible; that if the constituents were allowed to chose their candidate through fair means the drop of votes in Asante Akyem North Constituency wouldn’t have occurred in the 2020 General elections.
Nana is of the view that if the phenomenon of imposition of candidate is not corrected, NPP will one day lose the Constituency to NDC.
