Ahafo Ano North: Disqualified NPP parliamentary candidate goes independent


After being disqualified in the New Patriotic Party parliamentary candidate race, Kwabena Osei-Bonsu has declared his intention to contest as an independent candidate in the Ahafo Ano North Constituency of the Ashanti Region.

Mr. Osei-Bonsu’s decision to go independent follows a decision by the ruling party to allow incumbent MP, Sanid Adamu Suleman to go unopposed.

Addressing his supporters, Mr. Osei-Bonsu claimed he has contributed a lot to the development of the NPP in the constituency but was denied the opportunity to pick forms to contest the primary.

Mr. Osei-Bonsu said he felt he could not fail the youth who are calling on him to contest.

“If I failed the youth in becoming an MP in the Ahafo Ano North constituency it would be a big blow to the youth.”

He has also vowed to stand his ground despite the consequences of losing his status as an NPP member.

“The National Executives know what is going on in the constituency and therefore can’t call on me to step down as an independent candidate.”

Nana Oti Addo, who is the Campaign Manager for Mr Osei-Bonsu, said it pained the youth that Mr. Osei-Bonsu had been denied nomination forms.

According to him, Mr Osei-Bonsu who is called “Action Man” by the youth has used his own resources to help the constituency, polling stations and it was also through him that the NPP won in the Maabang Community, which is a stronghold of the NDC.

A Former Nasara Coordinator, Abdul Razak said Mr. Osei-Bonsu was the one who can bring the needed development to the area and he has to follow him to win the parliamentary seat.
