All is set for Mr. Victor Emmanuel Smith to contest as the NDC parliamentary candidate in Abuakwa North constituency.
Few months ago, the media reported that the Ghana’s High Commissioner to the UK and Ireland, Mr. Victor Emmanuel Smith was eyeing the Abuakwa North seat, a claim he dismissed.
There were allegations that Victor was working behind the scenes to induce Anthony Osei Gyimah, the current parliamentary candidate with one million Ghana cedis to leave the seat for him to contest in the November polls.
However, in an interview with Kasapa FM, the Special aide to the Commissioner, Charles Danso said Victor was not desperate to fight for any other office or position in his homeland, as speculated in the false publications making rounds in the media.
Meanwhile, information available to Kasapa FM indicates that, Mr. Victor Smith has shown interest in the seat and as such concluded talks with the National Executives of the ruling NDC. A National Executive who spoke on anonymity hinted the party has delegated some high profile personnel who are close to Mr. Gyampo to coerce him into willingly stepping down.
According to the executive, Victor stands a better chance of winning the seat with little or no difficulty hence the party’s decision to rally behind him.
Moreover, a section of the NDC Abuakwa North constituency executives led by the Organizer Kwabena Amponsah aka Jimmy have petitioned the party to withdraw the candidature of Mr. Anthony Osei Gyampo to make way for a more viable and marketable personality; A move, the National Executive tells Maame Broni is a mere formality to erase all suspicions.
