NEC Would Decide The Fate Of Prodigal Fomena MP – NPP Regional Secretary

The National Executive Council (NEC) would have to decide on the fate of the independent Member of Parliament-elect for Fomena Constituency, Andrew Amoako Asiamah, who openly proclaimed that he will still remain with the New Patriotic Party (NPP), says Samuel Pyne.

According to the NPP Ashanti Regional Secretary, although the party needs people like the former MP in parliament, there are necessary steps that have to be followed to address what happened.Andrew Amoako Asiamah was expelled from Parliament after his party wrote to the Speaker over his decision to go independent in the 2020 elections and eventually won the elections as an independent candidate.While addressing the media in Parliament on Wednesday, December 16, Lawyer Amoako Asiamah disclosed that the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) had approached him and tried to convince him to join their side in the House.He however, made it clear to them that he belonged to the NPP.Reacting to this news, the Ashanti Regional Secretary of the NPP said“the party has the power to accept him. It’s beyond the regional [branch]”.Sam Pyne said this during an interview on Onua TV‘s Maakye.

While adding that, “The National Executive Committee has that mandate to accept or reject the prodigal MP.” He continued, “we have not met him or we have not spoken with him, but even ghosts want a majority so the party will accept him wholeheartedly”.
