NPP is in my blood—Fomena MP explains why he intends to join the governing party in Parliament

The independent Member of Parliament elect (MP-elect) for the Fomena constituency in the Ashanti Region, Mr Andrews Amoako Asiamah has revealed his intentions to join the governing New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) caucus in the eight Parliament come January 7, 2021.

According to him, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) approached him to join the party in next year’s parliamentary sitting but did not accept the offer since he had the patriot blood in him.

Speaking in a media interview on Wednesday, Mr Asiamah maintained his unfeigned allegiance to the NPP despite his expulsion from the Party after he decided to run as an Independent Candidate in the 2020 Parliamentary elections.

“The issue regarding what side I join has been discussed already. I have said it times without number that I am a member of the NPP by blood. There is nothing that can change that,” he stated.

The sacked MP indicated that he would sit with NPP side in the eight Parliament despite the harsh decision by the Speaker of Parliament, Aaron Mike Oquaye to render his seat vacant weeks before the Parliamentary elections.

Although he said the decision was unfair, but indicated that he had moved on and bears no grudge against Mr Oquaye or any other member of the NPP.

“As far as I am concerned, the decision was not fair. I was not happy about it. But what can you do? It’s part of life. You take it in your stride and move on,” Mr Asiamah added.

He revealed that he had already spoken to the President, although he did not disclose what was discussed but maintained that everything was settled for him to join the NPP.

The Fomena MP attributed his victory in the Parliamentary elections to God’s help and the support of his constituents.

“The election was not easy for me especially with the decision I took. I contested against big parties like the NPP and NDC but by God’s help, the constituents saw my potential and what I have done.”

“They noticed my humble service and sincerity to the constituency,” he said.

Recounting why he still contested, Mr Asiamah noted that the unfair treatment meted to party members and the development of Fomena led to his decision to contest as an Independent Candidate.

After his victory in the just-ended elections, questions were raised as to which side he would join in Parliament.

Speaking on the matter, Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu confirmed that the New Patriotic Party had initiated an engagement with Lawyer Asiamah to join the NPP side of the house in the next parliament.
