[Video] Aspirant defies Akufo-Addo’s directive by staging rally in Assin South
The Assin South police say they are investigating the matter.
Speaking at the rally, organised on Saturday, July 4 at Assin Aworoso in the Central Region. The aspirant who was disqualified at the just-ended New Patriotic Party (NPP) primaries. He told the packed crowd including minors that they deserve their share of the national cake.
Also, he added that the electorates should decide between John Mahama of the National Democratic Congress(NDC) and Nana Akufo-Addo of the NPP. Just for the presidential slot in the coming elections. But make him their only choice to represent them in Parliament.
Some participants at the rally screamed on top of their lungs and into their faces. Either in support of the aspirant or demanding to know his plans for the constituency.
However, this incident comes on the heels of widely condemned conduct of a Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry, Carlos Ahenkorah. Who mingled with crowds after testing positive for Covid-19.
Therefore, he has since resigned his position and pressure is being put on him to withdraw his candidature as NPP parliamentary representative for Tema West Constituency.
