Vida Agyekum Acheampong launches campaign in BNA
The incumbent Member of Parliament for Bortianor Ngleshie Amanfro Constituency, Sylvester Tetteh, is facing intense pressure ahead of the New Patriotic Party’s parliamentary primaries. This is because power brokers within the governing party have thrown their support behind a fresh candidate, accusing Sylvester Tetteh of sowing seeds of division within the party.
The development suggests that Bortianor Ngleshie Amanfro could join the list of constituencies that produce one-term MPs, as has become typical in recent times. In 2016, the seat was won by Alhaji Habib Saad from the NDC, but in the 2020 elections, Sylvester Tetteh was brought in as the incumbent MP to secure another victory for the party. While many expected the party’s successes to be consolidated under Sylvester Tetteh’s leadership, the power brokers have now shifted their support to Lawyer Vida Agyekum Acheampong. They claim that Sylvester Tetteh has failed to unite the party and has only exacerbated divisions At the campaign launch of Lawyer Vida Acheampong, the power brokers including past and present party executives and party elders, not only showed up but also urged delegates to follow the new direction.
Lawyer Vida Agyekum Acheampong said her “Turn Around Agenda ” campaign launch focuses on leadership, business and economic development, infrastructure development, welfare, and people development.
The political landscape in Bortianor Ngleshie Amanfro is set for an interesting showdown in the upcoming NPP parliamentary primaries, as Incumbent MP Sylvester Tetteh faces intense pressure from a rising challenger supported by influential party figures.
