The National Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammy Awuku has endorsed the candidature of the party’s Parliamentary Candidate for the Akwatia Constituency, Ernest Yaw Kumi.
Addressing a mammoth rally of party supporters in Akwatia after a health walk, Sammi Awuku said he believes in Ernest Kumi and sees him as the ideal candidate to take over from Ama Sey.
“When I was coming, I saw one other person’s poster on buildings and his face even showed that he can develop Akwatia when given the opportunity…I see that the ideal person to do so is Ernest Kumi and he is the one everyone has endorsed…,” he said.
Ernest Kumi became the NPP’s Parliamentary Candidate for Akwatia after he defeated the incumbent, Ama Sey with four votes.
The incumbent MP last week renounced her decision to contest as an Independent Candidate.
The party therefore organised the walk to consolidate its gains in the mining town ahead of the 2020 elections.
Sammy Awuku who was part of big wigs from the NPP that made it to the health walk encouraged the NPP supporters to take it upon themselves to embark on house to house campaigns so the party can win by a huge margin.
