Some supporters of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Adansi Asokwa Constituency of the Ashanti Region have besieged the party office to register their protest against the purported intimidation of a parliamentary hopeful, Mr. Kwabena Asamoah.

According to the aggrieved supporters, the Deputy Chief Executive Officer in charge of Finance and Administration at the Microfinance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC) was hauled before a disciplinary committee of the constituency, chaired by Mr. Kwame Owusu, for donating a set of hand-driers and cash to an association of hairdressers without issuing a prior notice to the party.
The supporters, therefore, challenged the decision of the committee to summon him, describing it as utterly ridiculous.

They alleged that the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP), Mr. Kobina Tahir Hammond, was scheming to scare off any potential aspirant ahead of the party’s parliamentary primaries in February 2024.
Calming the nerves of his supporters after appearing before the disciplinary committee, Mr. Asamoah disclosed that the committee had cleared him of any wrongdoing.
According to him, the meeting was very cordial, hence he urged his followers to remain calm and throw their support behind the party as a united force in their quest to break the 8 in the 2024 general election.Dource: Ernest Best Anane, Adansi Asokwa
