The incumbent Member of Parliament for Manhyia South constituency in the Ashanti region, Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh has been endorsed to lead the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the constituency for another shot at Parliament in the December 2020 elections.
He was endorsed through a popular acclamation as he was the only candidate who filed to contest the elections.
Dr. Opoku Prempeh has been in Parliament representing the people of Manhyia South since January 2009.
He took over from Dr Kwame Addo Kufuor.
I have just been confirmed, through popular acclamation, as the Manhyia South Constituency New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary Candidate for the 7th December elections.
The short but colorful ceremony was attended by all the major stakeholders in the party in the constituency including the Council of Elders, Patrons, Executives, Electoral Area Coordinators, and others.
The various speakers, including Nana Kwaku Duah, the Council of Elders Chairman, acknowledged my efforts in uniting the party and bringing progress to the constituency over the years.
They gave assurances of their readiness to rally behind me so that our party would increase our votes to help retain the Manhyia South seat.
I am totally overwhelmed by the massive show of support and the confidence that the party has reposed in me. I am pledging to work harder than ever to enable President Nana Akufo-Addo to renew his mandate and continue to deliver progress for our dear country.
