The National Youth Organizer of the governing New Patriotic Party(NPP), Salam Mustapha has predicted that, the NDC parliamentary candidate for Assin North, Mr. Gyakye Quayson will be trashed into pieces by the NPP Parliamentary Candidate, Mr. Charles Opoku.
“The presence of Charles Opoku has scared the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) especially, Gyakye Quayson simply because NDC knows very well that between the two candidates, Gyakye Quayson doesn’t stand a dog’s chance and that he (Gyakye Quayson) will be trashed into pieces by Charles Opoku”, he claimed.
Salam Mustapha made this prediction to Mynewsgh.com reporter, Hajia Asana Gordon at Assin Akonfudi in the Central Region, when Charles Opoku visited Traditional Councils in Assin North to officially announce the impending by-election to the chiefs.
Some bigwigs of the NPP including the National Chairman of the party, Stephen Ayesu Ntim, the National Organizer, Nana Boakye popularly known as Nana B, Volta Regional Chairman of NPP, Makafui Woanyah, Ashanti Regional Chairman of NPP, Bernard Antwi Bosiako known in politics as Chairman Wontumi as well as the Central Regional Executives of the party among others were on the ground campaigning for a win.
The National Organizer of the NPP, Mr. Nana Boakye, popularly known as Nana B charged Gyakye Quayson to blame his own party, NDC, for the exposure of his dual citizenship since NPP had no hand in his removal from Parliament as he (Gyakye Quayson) claimed.
He charged the chiefs and people of Assin North constituency not to allow themselves for Gyakye Quayson to throw dust into their eyes claiming that NPP wanted majority in Parliament to pass Anti Gay bill, which was completely lies.
Nana B appealed to the people of Assin North constituency to consider Charles Opoku’s massive initiatives including free skill training, registration of people on NHIS, paying of hospital bills for some aged, releasing of free lands for the construction of District Assembly and vote for massively for Charles Opoku to bring more developmental projects to the Assin North Constituency.
Assin North constituency by-election contest follows a Supreme Court ruling on May 17, this year, that Mr Quayson’s election as Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin North was unconstitutional and ordered Parliament to expunge his name from its records as a member of the House.
