The Independent Member of Parliament (MP) for the Fomena, Andrew Amoako Asiamah say NPP’s opposition, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) approached him to side with its MPs in the next Parliament.
Mr. Amoako Asiamah did not expain if the NDC’s approach was formal or not.
Speaking to the press in Parliament on Wednesday, December 16, 2020 Mr. Asiamah explained vividly to the NDC why he could not join its MPs.
“In a way, the NDC had earlier approached me, but I made them aware, and they appreciated where I am coming from,” he said.
“I belong to that house (NPP) and I am going home and I hope I will be welcomed as such.”
”I will instead side with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) MPs in the next Parliament.”
“I hope this decision gets the party to get things right. At times certain happenings make us learn the better way because I think these steps not for myself but in a way for the good of the party.”
“The party also has to make sure things are done openly and transparently so that if someone is in the party and things do not work out the way he expects, he or she would take it in good faith.”
“Even before the elections, I said I was winning for the party because the party is in my blood and DNA. I don’t have any place to go. I am taking this decision with the prior recognition of my constituents.”
The MP also disclosed that although he won the 2020 polls as an independent candidate, his constituents have urged him to associate with the NPP.
