An aspiring Parliamentary Candidate on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), in the Asante Akyem South Constituency, Mr Eric Amofa, has challenged the claims by his critics that he is too young to become an MP.
The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) scheduled April 25, 2020, to go on primary elections to elect its Parliamentary Candidates in the various Constituencies across the country, but due to the ban on social gatherings by the President of the Republic Nana Akufo – Addo, as a key step to curb the spread of the novel Coronavirus, the Executives of the party have postponed the exercise till further notice.
Speaking on this, Mr Eric Amofa said in one – on – one interview with Local Chairman on Okwawu fm’s ‘Ghana Te Sen’ morning show today April 28, 2020, that there has been some calls from some of his oponents in his Constituency that he is young and has more years ahead to contest for the seat so he should retract his decision for now.
But to Mr Amofa, becoming an MP has nothing to do with age wise but the competency and the capability of the person is what matters most.
He further noted that his Constituency is not in a good position now, and when the mandate is given to him, he will make sure the party becomes United, and above all electoral margin for the party increased with development decending down to the doorsteps of the people.
