The President, Nana Akufo-Addo has asked voters at Asokwa in the Ashanti Region to reject independent candidate contesting the incumbent, Patricia Appiah Adjei.
On his second day of his campaign tour of the region, the President told electorates of Asokwa that “I am your President and the leader of the party. I cannot work with any independent candidate. I can only work with Patricia Adjei, the elected candidate.”
He also called on supporters of the NPP to ignore ignore party members who have gone independent, especially in the Ashanti Region.
He urge the Chiefs of Fomena to talk to their Member of Parliament, Andrew Amoako Asiamah to rescind his decision to contest as an independent candidate in the December 7 elections.
“You need to speak to him. The decision will not help him. It will also not help you. He will not profit from it and it will not be profitable to me, because I am an NPP member, and I work with NPP people. In future, by the grace of God when I still have the power, it is NPP people I will govern this country with,” the President said.
