The National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Jomoro Constituency in the Western Region has fought off claims that the Member of Parliament for the area, Dorcas Affo-Toffey holds multiple nationalities.
A statement signed by the constituency Chairman Anthony Armah Benle noted that the NDC MP renounced her Ivorian citizenship before she filed her nomination to contest in Parliamentary elections.
In view of that, he said the news circulating on social media alleging that Madam Affo-Toffey is still a dual citizen is false and must be disregarded.
“For the avoidance of doubt, Affo-Toffey does not hold citizenship of any other country and does not owe allegiance to any other country other than that of Republic of Ghana.”
“We wish therefore to assure the good people of Jomoro that Honorable Dorcas Affo-Toffey is firmly focused on bringing the best of representation and development and will not be detracted by these needless media speculations,” he said.
Mr Benle then urged the people of Jomoro to treat the misinformation as “speculations and insinuations with the greatest of contempt it deserves.”
