Attractive internal party politics reason for NPP’s dominance in Kumawu — Fuseini Issah

Former Member of Parliament for the Okwaikwei North Constituency, Fuseini Issah has stated that the perpetual victory of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Kumawu is a result of its attractive internal party politics.

Mr. Issah on Good Morning Ghana on Metro TV on Tuesday, 23rd May 2023 noted that the NPP has delivered on its mandate to the people of Kumawu making them a preferred choice as far as good governance is concerned.

He admitted challenges faced with their duties in areas of executing projects which sometimes are stalled due to lack of funds, he made reference to a road project he had lobbied for in his time.

Highlighting roads in Kumawu and the government fixing the dilapidated ones ahead of the by-elections, Mr. Issah debunked claims it was aimed at influencing the outcome of the winning the election and noted that the contract had been awarded for the construction long before the sudden demise of the sitting MP.

“In the case of Kumawu, I have heard the Chief of Kumawu say that the former MP, Hon. Philip Basoah had actually held a press conference and had actually explained to the constituents where they were with the contract. The contract was well issued and signed before his demise.”

He suggested that the speculations were untrue and unfounded.

Mr. Issah also reckoned the giving of gifts to constituents in Kumawu claded in some political party colors and regalias and stressed that such things are expected looking at the degree of frustration to get constituents won over.

The former lawmaker, however, wished contenders and everyone present for the election a peaceful election.

He added that having reckoned the necessary and interesting record of the NPP, it will not relent on the quantum of work needed for their massive win in the by-election in Kumawu.

The people of Kumawu Constituency are voting to elect a new Member of Parliament today, May 23, 2023, to fill the vacant seat following the demise of the late Philip Basoah who died on March 27, 2023.
