Kobina Tahir Hammond

Sammy Bimfo Darkwah, a New Patriotic Party parliamentary candidate for the Adansi-Asokwa Constituency in the Ashanti region, has declared he will be crowned victor in the primary scheduled for April 25, 2020.

To Mr Darkwah, he is hopeful of his victory because he believes the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP), K.T. Hammond, who is his major contender, has lost faith with the constituents.

Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen show on Friday, Mr Darkwah, a former president of the National Union of Ghana Students, said Mr Hammond has never been appreciative of the efforts of his constituents in his parliamentary bid.


According to him, the polling station executives and the entire constituents are angry with Mr Hammond and are eager for a change.

Meanwhile, Mr Hammond speaking on the same show, said he was begged to become MP in the constituency and questioned why the same people would want him to lose his seat.

Mr Hammond emphasised he has become an institution and a symbol of development in the constituency who has been diligent in his service to the constituency.
