The National Vice Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Fredrick Freduah Antoh popularly known as F.F Antoh has revealed that the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Microfinance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC), Stephen Amoah popularly known as ‘Sticka’ has rescinded his decision of not contesting in the party’s parliamentary primaries.
He said, Sticka had earlier told him he wasn’t going to contest for the Nhyiaeso parliamentary candidate slot upon receiving advice from close friends and relatives but has informed him this morning (June 4) that he will be contesting in the primaries at all cost.
Mr. Stephen Amoah in an earlier media interview had revealed that he was unwillingly considering shielding his parliamentary ambitions in the Nhyiaeso constituency as ‘big men’ within the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have incessantly impressed on him to step down.
He in an emotional account sought to postulate that an authority head in the party [Prez. Akufo-Addo] had insisted that he steps down to allow for the incumbent MP, Kennedy Kankam to run unopposed.
The NPP will hold its parliamentary and presidential primaries on June 2, 2020 in all Electoral Commission’s demarcated areas.
The General Secretary of the party, John Boadu has stated that, the modalities for the conduct of the election will soon be made public but he is assuring that it will observe all the Covid-19 safety protocols to protect candidates and delegates.
