The member-elect for the Fomena Constituency, Hon. Andrews Amoako Asiamah has openly declared that he won the seat for the New Patriotic Party though he vied as an independent candidate, however, his fate, according to the Ashanti regional secretary of the NPP, Mr. Sam Pyne, will be determined by the National Executive Council of the party.
Mr. Sam Pyne says he is not oblivious of the fact that the Party needs people like Hon. Asiamah but the final decision would be made by the National Executive council since they orchestrated his seat being declared vacant by the Speaker of Parliament.
The legal practitioner was expelled from Parliament after his party wrote to the Speaker over his decision to go independent in the 2020 parliamentary polls.
He eventually won the elections as an independent candidate with an overwhelming margin.
Speaking to journalists in Parliament on Wednesday, December 16, lawyer Amoako Asiamah revealed that the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) approached him to take a decision to join their side in the House but he told them he belonged to the NPP.
Speaking in an interview on Thursday on Onua TV‘s Maakye jointly hosted by Adwoa Konadu-Yiadom and Afia Tagor, and monitored by Mynewsghana.net, the Ashanti Regional Secretary of the NPP said;
“the party has the power to accept him. It’s beyond the regional [branch]”.
Sam Pyne added:
“The National Executive Committee has that mandate to accept or reject the prodigal MP.”
The NPP scribe said,
“we have not met him or we have not spoken with him, but even ghosts want a majority so the party will accept him wholeheartedly”.
