The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary Candidate Aspirant for Adentan Constituency, Mr. Kwasi Obeng-Fosu, has condemned in no uncertain terms the dastardly act of violence inflicted on Nana Mawerehene and a few of his followers by some imported thugs without any provocation.
Mr. Kwasi Obeng-Fosu in a press release issued stated, “It was heart wrenching seeing Adentan NPP, which used to be an icon in the Greater Accra Region become a laughing stock just because of a supposed internal democratic process meant to elect a Parliamentary Candidate for the party”.
Violent thuggery he indicated, is a culture that has always been alien to the NPP in the Adentan Constituency until recently,saying, there have been more acrimonious internal rivalry in the constituency in the past but, not a single soul got physically abused,however contentious the elections were.
“It is true, I wished to lead the NPP in Adentan as Parliamentary Candidate but little did I expect anyone to get injured in the process, most especially Nana Mawerehene and all the victims of the unprovoked attacks”.
He averred that as a politician, he knew there are only two outcomes in elections – win or lose and therefore, though defeat was unexpected, he accept the decision of the party in good faith. “In that vein, I wish to congratulate the elected Parliamentary Candidate on her election” .
Mr. Obeng-Fosu however, expressed appreciations to his supporters for their unadulterated love and unflinching support offered to him even at the expense of their comfort.
