The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Media Communicators popularly known as Serial Callers Kwabena Nyame has urged the party to blame the Asokore Mampong Municipal Chief (MCE) Alidu Seidu for unable to win the Asawsi Constituency seat in the 2020 general elections.
According to Kwabena Nyame, the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the NPP Bernard Antwi Bosiako popular known as Chairman Wontumi can never be blamed for the party’s abysmal performance in the Asawasi Constituency during the 2020 general elections.
Despite Chairman Wontumi’s promised to win all the 47 seats in Ashanti Region including Asawasi Constituency, the party wins 44 parliamentary seats in the 2020 general elections.
Muntaka Mubarak beats the NPP parliamentary candidate, Alidu Seidu to retain the Asawase Constituency seat. The incumbent won with 51,659 votes representing 66.36% while the NPP candidate polled 31,256 representing 33.64%.
Kwabena Nyame speaking in an interview with Pure Fm’s Osei Kwadwo monitored by Ghtimesonline.com said Asokore Mampong Municipal Chief (MCE) Alidu Seidu unsociable attitude towards the people in his municipality caused the party’s defeat in the constituency.
According to Kwabena Nyame, though Chairman Wontumi promised to win all the 47 seats in Ashanti Region but it will be very difficult to win a seat for unsociable parliamentary candidate.
“The people who voted in Asawasi Constituency over the years complained about the unsociable attitude of Hon Alidu Seidu and it affected the party’s chance to win the Asawasi seat from Hon Muntaka Mubarak. Those calling and attacking Chairman Wontumi to resign for winning the Asawasi Seat should stop because Chairman Wontumi did his best to win the Asawasi seat but the parliamentary candidate for NPP was our problem” Kwamena Nyame explained.
He therefore appealed to President Akuffo Addo not to reappoint Hon Alidu Seidu as the Municipal Chief Executive for Asokore Mampong Municipality if the party is eager to win the Asawasi Constituency Constituency seat in the 2024 general elections.
