The Central Regional branch of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has moved to defend its parliamentary candidate for Awutu Senya West, George Andah, following his recent challenge to Hanna Tetteh to show her husband to constituents.

Mr. Andah at a mini rally held at Bawjiase in the Central Region last week, challenged the incumbent Member of Parliament, Hanna Tetteh, to show her husband to the constituents.

“I came here with my wife, and children. Please tell Hanna to also come and show us her husband,” Mr. Andah said.

Many have taken to social media to describe his action as chauvinist, and an insult to unmarried women seeking political office. But the regional executives of the NPP say George Andah cannot be faulted for the comments as Hanna Tetteh was the first to launch an attack on Mr. Andah. Richard Takyi, the NPP’s Central Regional Communications Director told Citi News George Andah’s comment was “charitable”.

“In the first place, it was Hanna Tetteh who accused George Andah wrongly, calling him an irresponsible man and accused him of being a womanizer without any basis. In my view, George Andah gave Hanna Tetteh a fair response. He was even charitable with Hanna Tetteh,” he added.

Andah’s attack on Hanna Tetteh’s marital status primitive – NDC Meanwhile, the Central Regional Secretariat of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), has in a strongly worded statement condemned what it calls “retrogressive” and “primitive” the attack on the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for Awutu Senya West constituency, Hanna Tetteh. 

The NDC said it will “never condone any irresponsible comment against single mothers, unmarried women or career women who are in politics to advance the cause of women and children.”
