The incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for Manhyia North in the Ashanti Region is troubled as regional executives of the party are poised to champion his defeat in the upcoming parliamentary primaries.
Hon. Collins Owusu Amankwah has become a victim of machinations from his contenders who are scheming to dash his second parliamentary term.
Those who want to snatch the seat are pulling all strings to make the MP look bad before the delegates in the constituency.
Rawgist. com has uncovered heinous plans being perpetrated against the MP by the Regional Chairman Bernard Antwi Boasiako and the main contender in the race, Nana Osei Bamfo who have switched to “plan B” to steal the verdict of the delegates.
Hon. Amankwah, popularly called “Chief” is facing allegations such as being “anti Nana Addo-Dankwa”, the flagbearer of NPP.
The MP’s detractors also tell delegates the MP had earlier insulted the flagbearer on many occasions claiming they have audio and video images to that effect.
It is therefore amazing that the MP’s accusers have not provided the said evidence to the delegates to expose the legislator.
It is also unclear the role of NPP’s flag bearer Nana Akufo Addo in the Manhyia North debacle.
Even before the MP could declare his intention to seek re-election, it is on record that the Chairman physically assaulted the legislator whiles other contenders have also done things to make life uncomfortable for the MP.
Earlier, certain plots against the MP were uncovered and exposed forcing National Organizers to postpone the real election date in the constituency.
Kwabena Danso-Dapaah who reports from the constituency says it is a two horse race between Hon. Amankwah and Nana Bamfo also known as “Sojaman”.
Our reporter predicts a landslide win for the incumbent MP explaining; “what will do the trick for him is his strong personal relationship with the grassroots and how he is quick to answer their calls”.
The election comes off on Saturday in the constituency. Our reporters are following developments keenly and promise to bring readers full coverage
