Newly-elected Member of Parliament (MP) for the Fomena constituency in the Ashanti Region, Andrew Amoako Asiamah, has rejoined the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Mr Asiamah was ousted from parliament and sacked by his party when he decided to go independent following his displeasure with the internal party primaries. He went solo and lo and behold won the Fomena seat in the just-ended election.
Speaking to the press at the Parliament House in Accra on Wednesday, December 16, 2020, Mr Asaiamah said he can never divorce the NPP because it is part of his DNA.
“I said that I was winning for the party. I don’t have any place to go. My blood, my DNA, my everything is NPP,” Andrew Amoako Asiamah said.
He added that he has decided to rejoin the NPP based on the advice he received from his constituents.
“I am taking this decision with the prior recognition of my constituents. I am not speaking just for myself. I am speaking for my people. What they told me is what I am speaking out. My people are saying in spite of whatever happened, I should still be with NPP,” he stressed.
Mr Asiamah’s decision to rejoin the NPP will certainly set up the party to have the majority in the 8th parliament. As it stands now NPP has 137 of parliamentary seats while the NDC has 136 with Sene West constituency still outstanding.
