Deputy Chief of Staff Francis Asenso-Boakye has picked a nomination forms to contest the Bantama Constituency NPP Parliamentary primaries in the Ashanti Region.

Some party executives and members were happy to see the Bantama Darling boy readying to participate in the upcoming parliamentary primaries.

He was followed by a lot of party members who are charged for change in the constituency to pick the nomination forms.

Below are his words after purchasing the forms

I wish to announce that I’ve filed papers, this morning, to contest the NPP Parliamentary primary for Bantama Constituency.

It is a privilege to have yet another opportunity to be part of this important undertaking. This will be the third time that I submit myself to be considered by the dutiful delegates of the constituency. I do so with a humble heart and an unwavering conviction that there’s nothing more fulfilling than the honour to represent and serve your people. I’m hopeful that this time around, I would have sufficiently earned their trust and confidence to merit an endorsement.

Bantama has been very kind to me, right from birth. It has nurtured me into becoming a person of value by instilling in me, a sense of purpose and identity. When by good fortune I got a Rotary scholarship to study in America, I took with me the virtues of kindness, compassion and communal spirit that permeates life in Bantama. I know of no other home than Bantama.

As a young boy, I immersed myself in the work of the party, firstly as a footsoldier in the constituency, then as a student activist and later the founding President of of the Tertiary Institutions Confederacy of the NPP (TESCON). Together with colleagues like John Krugu, Sefa Dwamena and Steve Amoah, we led a massive drive to mobilize over 2000 tertiary students in the Ashanti region who served as polling agents in the three Northern regions during the 2000 elections. A feat unparalleled in the history of student mobilization. I’m proud to see how TESCON has become; a vibrant and dynamic students arm of our party . Aside TESCON, I also had the honour to serve as a youth organizer for the then North America branch of the party.

I’m convinced that it was my dedication to duty and commitment to the party that endeared me to then presidential candidate, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to have me serve him as his political assistant.

In appointing me as a deputy chief of staff, I believe His Excellency the President has affirmed me as a person of tact, good judgment and discretion. This position, with its heavy responsibilities, has enhanced my capacity and prepared me adequately to serve the people of Bantama, both as a legislator and as an agent of development. I hope to discharge my duties diligently if and when given the nod.

In this regard, I intend to continue the dialogue I started some few years ago with party functionaries and voters in the constituency about priority challenges that we can collectively tackle. With inspiring and purposeful leadership, Bantama will shine!

Thank you, once more, for your continued support.

Background of Bantama Constituency Primaries and unopposed agenda.

About a month ago, it was allegedly reported that the Ashanti Regional NPP chairman Benard Antwi Boasiako a.k.a Chairman Wuntumi has said all current NPP MP’s in the Ashanti Region will go unopposed in the upcoming elections .

Recently, the Member of Parliament for Bantama, Daniel Okyem Aboagye, in shocking move, knelt down in front of the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party, Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, to declare his constituency as one of those parliamentary primaries should not be held at a meeting held with the constituency, polling station executives and the electoral area coordinators at the Culture Centre chaired by Mr. F. F. Antoh, the National 2nd Vice Chairman of the NPP.

The General Secretary of the party John Boadu refuted that statement and even added they will open nominations for presidential primaries.

According him, he was devastated to witness members of Parliament with Honorable titles kicking ballot box and snatching ballot papers on such a remarkable day where numerous people around the globe were witnessing what was happening in the country.

He mention that, what some Parliamentarians displayed that day doesn’t depict the Honorable titles given them.

He added that, the unpopular incident has soiled Ghana’s indelible reputation in democracy intentionally which the country has been proud of for decades.

He emphasized that, every Parliamentarian who breached Ghana’s constitution that day should be dealt with as an ordinary Ghanaian because some ordinary citizens have been jailed for doing what some of the Parliamentarians did.

He argued that, it will be very sad and promote selective justice if the Parliamentarians who misbehaved are left to go unpunished.
