NPP primaries: NaCCA boss joins Kwesiminitsim race

Dr. Prince Armah, NaCCA Executive Secretary

The Executive Secretary for National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) Dr Prince Hamidu Armah has picked forms to contest the Kwesiminitsim Constituency primaries of the governing New Patriotic Party.

Dr Armah was accompanied hundreds of party delegates amidst brass band music to pick his nomination forms Thursday.

Addressing the jubilant party supporters after picking the form, the Education guru said the constituency needs a more dynamic and competent leader to champion their developmental agenda.

He further indicated that his decision to run for the seat is to provide a plan for economic growth of the Constituency which will help provide jobs for the people

Dr. Armah stated that he is the one with the right connection and leadership acumen to lead the Constituency in its pursuit of development.

Meanwhile, the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for Adansi Asokwa Constituency in the Ashanti region Kwabena Tahiru Hammond known in Politics as K.T Hammond is seeking support from traditional leaders of Adansi to stop Mr Sammy Binfo Dakwa from contesting him in the upcoming parliamentary primaries of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The Adansihemaa Nana Amanimaa Dade II reportedly invited the Constituency Chairman, Mr. Kwame Owusu to her Palace and pleaded with him to allow K.T Hammond to run in primaries unopposed to guarantee him a sixth term in parliament.

However, Chairman Owusu said he politely requested of the Queen mother to stay out of the party’s internal contest, to allow the delegates of the constituency to choose their Parliamentary Candidate for the party.

Chairman Owusu confirmed to Ultimate FM’s Isaac Bediako in telephone a conversation of honouring such a meeting with the Queen Mother.

“Yes, I was invited Adansihemaa for a meeting on last Sunday, Nana told me that our MP has put before her and other Chiefs to plead on his behalf so that I will let him run unopposed in the upcoming parliamentary primaries. I simply told Nana Amoanimaa with all respect that, there’s nothing I can do as a Chairman because all interested people in the contest have already picked their nomination forms at a cost. So I told Nana to allow the party delegates to have a say in electing their favourite PC since 1992. Nananom have also agreed with my justification for election,’’ Chairman Owusu said.
