The Bono Regional Secretariat of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has launched an campaign dubbed “Operation Banda Constituency for NPP”.
The Deputy Bono Regional Youth organizer, Shadrack Abrefa Mensah Ofori in a statement signed and copied to Ark News noted that the party is poised to snatching the seat from the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) with the abysmal performance of the sitting Member of Parliament (MP) for the area.
He has however called on the opposition National Democratic Congress MP for the area, Ahmed Ibrahim to prepare himself for the defeat he is about to suffer in the upcoming 2020 general election.
His comment comes after the Member of Parliament for Banda, Ahmed Ibrahim who doubles as the Deputy Minority Chief Whip, alleged in an interview with Peace FM, an Accra-based radio, that since the NPP came back to power, it has been recruiting its members into the national security set-up and cited the Deputy Bono Regional Youth Organizer of the party as the current BNI Officer for Banda.
But in a sharp rebuttal, the Deputy Bono Regional Youth Organizer, Shadrack Abrefa Mensah described the comment of the Deputy minority Chief Whip as false explaining that he has never worked with the BNI in any capacity, adding that the BNI officer at Banda does not hold any position in the NPP.
In his opinion, the MP is simply preparing the minds of his constituents about the heavy defeat awaiting him in the 2020 elections considering the fact that he is fast losing popularity in the area owing to his inability to fulfill his numerous campaign promises.
