A group of Polling station executives in the Mpraeso Constituency of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Friday, picked nomination forms for Mr Davis Opoku Ansah otherwise, to contest the April 25 parliamentary primaries.

Mr Opoku, a Public Relations Consultant, is a long-standing activist of the party and contributed in diverse ways towards the development of the party.

He is also the Operations Director of the Pro-Government pressure group, Alliance for Accountable Governance (AFAG).

Speaking to the media after the exercise, the Chairman of the Mpraeso Post Office polling station and youth leader in the community, Dr Simon Ofori said: “We volunteered to pick the forms for OPK [Davies Opoku ANsah] to answer the many calls from the voters in our areas. As you are aware, we represent their voice in NPP and it is important we listen to them.”

Dr Ofori, a Lecturer, added, “ The people have seen the little things OPK has done for them. Today, Taxi Drivers, market women, youth groups, etc are all clamouring for him to lead the party in the 2020 elections. His skills development programs and larger vision to contribute to the Kwahu rising agenda has been noticed by our people.”

He used the occasion to call for a clean campaign devoid of insults.

”We are one party. We have one agenda and that is to give Nana [President Akufo-Addo] a second term. We can only achieve that if we avoid insults amongst us during these periods of the contest. It should be about ideas only.”

The Mpraeso Constituency has been a fortress for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) with Seth Kwame Acheampong occupying the seat since 2009.

He succeeded Dr Francis Osafo Mensah, who had occupied the seat 1996 and 2008.
