Fomena MP officially aligns with NPP in Parliament
Lawyer Andrews Asiamah, Member of Parliament for the Fomena Constituency has written to the Speaker of Parliament officially notifying him of his decision to align with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Caucus in Parliament.
Following his dismissal from the NPP and subsequent win of the Fomena seat as an Independent Candidate, Lawyer Asiamah has been in the spotlight in recent times.
At the inauguration of the eight Parliament, Mr Asiamah was appointed Second Deputy Speak of Parliament.
Although he has already declared his intentions to sit with the NPP in Parliament, his official communiqué had not yet been submitted to the Office of Parliament.
In a letter addressed to the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin on Wednesday, Lawyer Asiamah states:
“I Andrew Asiamah Amoako, an Independent Member of Parliament for Fomena Constituency, and now 2nd Deputy Speaker for same Parliament do hereby declare that I shall, for the purpose of transacting business in the house associate with the NPP Caucus in the Eighth Parliament.”
“For the avoidance of doubt, I do hereby affirm that I shall cooperate and collaborate with the NPP Caucus in the Eighth Parliament,” he concluded.
It is believed that this letter from Mr Asiamah would help decide what caucus holds the majority in Parliament.
