The Ashanti Regional Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Samuel Pyne revealed that he has no hand in the deliberations leading to the suspension of Manaf Ibrahim, a parliamentary candidate aspirant in the Asawase Constituency.

The party’s Regional Executive Committee (REC) had in a resolution stated that there would be no parliamentary primaries in three (3) Orphan Constituencies in the region a decision that was fiercely resisted.

Speaking about the development, the NPP scribe said “I am not the one who brought the idea. It the party Regional Executive Committee (REC) so you cannot hold responsible for anything”, he revealed on Kumasi FM’s morning show hosted by Nana Yaw Mensah Joel monitored by MyNewsGh.com.

At a meeting of the Regional Executive Committee of the party held on Monday, 29th July 2019, the Regional Executive Committee (REC), after thorough and exhaustive deliberations, unanimously declared that the three(3) Orphan Constituencies in the region shall sponsor the candidatures of Hon.

Joseph Owusu, DCE – Sekyere Afram Plains as sole candidates for the Asawasi, Ejura Sekyeredumasi, and Sekyere Afram Plains respectively.

“By NPP party Constitution, I suppose to ensure that whatever decision the party takes, I sign and bring them out for public consumption but that does not mean I the person responsible for such communication”, Mr. Samuel Pyne who wrote the letter revealed.
