THE ASUOGYAMAN Development Foundation, Asuogyaman Devoted Ladies and the people of Asuogyaman Constituency are calling on Mr Kofi Osei-Ameyaw to contest the 2020 Parliamentary elections.
Over the weekend, posters and calendars were circulated by the Asuogyaman people in the constituency putting enormous pressure on Mr Osei-Ameyaw to consider contesting again as their Member of Parliament.
In a statement released and signed by the Ag. Executive Secretary of the Asuogyaman Development Foundation, Mr Stephen Gyamfi, said Mr Osei-Ameyaw was the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Asuogyaman constituency in 2004-2008 and 2012-2016 on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Mr Gamfi said so far Mr Osei-Ameyaw is the only parliamentary candidate who has won the seat for the NPP on two occasions. The Asuogyaman constituency is the traditional stronghold of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
“NPP has never won a presidential election in the Asuogyaman constituency since 1992. NDC has won the Asuogyaman parliamentary seat on five different occasions since 1992,” he stated.
Mr Gamfi revealed that Mr Osei-Ameyaw with the ethnic background of Ewe and Akwamu always favour his candidature considering the heterogeneous nature of the Asuogyaman constituency in terms of ethnic representations.
“He performed creditably well during his reign as the MP for the Asuogyaman Constituency.
“We are with this statement calling on Mr Osei-Ameyaw to come again and contest the 2020 parliamentary election in the Asuogyaman constituency come 2020,|”
