Chaos In Eastern Regional NPP As Akwatia MP Defies Akufo-Addo’s Order Not To Go Independent – Party Chairman Furious



Massive tension is reportedly brewing in the NPP in the Eastern Region after the incumbent MP for Akwatia, Mercy Adu Gyamfi, popularly known as Ama Sey was said to have defied an order from the President not to run independent.

Ama Sey who was seeking a second term lost the Parliamentary Primaries in June by four (4) votes to a young Legal Practitioner Ernest Kumi. The MP had 223 votes as against 227 polled by her main contender .

Though she asked for a recount, after she complained of being cheated, her request was turned down by the Regional Executives.

The MP’s teeming supporters have consistently alleged that some elements at the National and Regional level conspired to rig the elections against her, thereby urging her to run independent.

The MP has since been Organizing series of events to canvass more support. In one of her recent public events, she told her teaming supporters that “everyone wants quality thing so I’m urging you all to rally behind me so that on December 7, we vote for development in Akwatia. I will come to every community. I will come to every house, I will be in every Church and every group to speak to you. That is where the real issues will be talked about and at the end there will be victory”.

However, reacting to the MP’s intent to run independent on Nkwakaw-based Agoo FM, the Eastern Regional Chairman Kingston Okomeng Kissi dared the MP to go Independent.

“I dare her to go Independent. A seating Member of Parliament and you want to go Independent. Have you heard this before, it can never happen. In all I blame some top NPP gurus in the Region who are pushing her to go Independent. I want to tell them their plans will fall on their heads. At this time that some of us are busy roaming and campaigning then some people are doing this. They get money to support these things ”

“We have done everything possible and spoken to Ama Sey. Even the President has invited her and spoken to her. Our Reconciliation Committee headed by Council of state Paa Kofi Ansong have met her and spoken to her but still she is adamant. What should we do again, a whole President has spoken to you. I wouldn’t want to reveal what the President told her but for that you would have known the real character of Ama Sey in NPP. He added.
