The Asutifi North Constituency Chairman for the New Patriotic Party [NPP] who is also aspiring to be the Brong Ahafo regional chairman, Francis Sarfo Poku popularly known as Chairman Jerry has debunked assertions by the regional secretariat of the New Patriotic Party, that he has paid for all nomination forms to be used for the constituency elections.
According to him, he promised to pay for all who wish to contest for positions in the upcoming constituency elections when available but not that he has made the payment already.
He said this in an interview with Kwabena Obeng Akrofi on Ark in the Morning when responding to a statement from the Brong Ahafo regional office of the party that they are unaware of the said forms payment.
Mr. Sarfo emphasized that, he is ever ready to assist and pay for all who are willing to contest for a constituency executive position in the Brong Ahafo region adding that those who do not want him to pay for him or her can personally go and pick his own forms and pay.
In a quick response, the acting regional secretary of the NPP, Mr. Kofi Ofosu Boateng said they were tempted to release a statement circulating that Chairman Jerry has paid for forms for the constituency elections but their checks national office indicates that, nothing of that sort has been done.
