Assin North By-election: The mistake that cost NPP

Member of Parliament for Sagnarigu Constituency, Alhaji A.B.A Fuseini has alleged that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) candidate in the Assin North by-election, Charles Opoku was closer to the National  Democratic Congress  (NPP) than the NPP.

He said the NPP got it wrong by making him their candidate.

He told Helen Appiah-Ampofo on the 3FM Sunrise Morning Show that Charles Opoku was imported from Tarkwa Nsuaem to come and contest on the NPP’s ticket because of their opportunistic politics.

According to A.B.A Fuseini, Charles Opoku had no business coming to Assin North, but NPP for their opportunistic politics just thought they could poach him.

“This was the man who was very cozy with the NDC. He was closer to the NDC and I am telling you this as a matter of records found out there. But for the fact that perhaps Gyakye Quayson was rightly chosen, he was eyeing to be the NDC candidate here. The NPP thought they can poach him and get an advantage. They were dead wrong” Alhaji Fuseini said.

He also commended the Ghana Police Service for exhibiting a high level of professionalism to ensure a peaceful by-election at Assin North.

“They made sure they provided a congeniality atmosphere for a peaceful and orderly election and ensured the will of the people of Assin Breku prevailed” he commended.

Alhaji Fuseini emphasized that the results of the Assin North election have shown that the people of Ghana want the NDC to continue to hold the NPP government accountable.

“We will ensure that we keep the fire of accountability” he assured.

Mr. Gyakye Quayson polled 17,245 of the total valid votes, representing 57.56%, to beat his contenders, Charles Opoku of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and Bernice Enyonam Sefenu of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG) in the Assin North by-election held on 27 June 2023.
