President Akufo Addo’s visit to the people of Adansi Fomena yesterday turned upside down as his presumed happy moment was ruined by the residents.
The President, when speaking at an event to commission a 450 bed boys’ dormitory block at Fomena T.I. Ahmadiya Senior High School, pleaded with the constituents to vote for himself as a President and for the New Patriotic Party’s parliamentary candidate, instead of the incumbent MP who is now an independent candidate because he lost in the NPP primaries.
He said despite his plea to Fomena MP Andrew Amoako Asiamah against going independent in the upcoming 7 December 2020 polls, the lawmaker remained adamant and so the constituents should vote against him but for the NPP parliamentary candidate.
“You will all agree with me that the independent candidate will not help Fomena. When it happens that way, it means that in parliament you won’t have anyone who can negotiate with the government on your behalf”, the president said.
However, most of the constituents that pataapa.com spoke to vowed to still vote for the incumbent MP who is also an independent candidate despite the President’s plea.
“We will vote for him, he (Akufo-Addo) wants to be president, the lawyer also wants his MP. We want the lawyer, we like lawyer Asiamah, he has done everything for us. We would rather vote for NDC if tjat is the case.Lawyer Asiama has helped us. Then we won’t vote. We jad our police station necausehim,” some constituents said.
