Akosua Frema Osei Opare

The Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei-Opare has disclosed the reason she opted out as Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency after serving two terms.

Speaking in a yet-to-be-aired interview on Joy FM‘s Personality Profile, on Thursday, Mrs. Osei-Opare said she declined to contest again because she had broken the myth surrounding the inability of incumbent MPs in the Constituency to go past the first term.

“That has been the norm, and people said as for Ayawaso, we don’t go more than one term, so I wanted to ‘break the 4’ so I broke the 4,” she stated.

The Chief of Staff, indicated that besides, she had other intentions such as supporting the campaign at the national level.

“I had planned that I will do two terms but I will also support the party in another way. I stepped down and joined the campaign team of then candidate Akufo-Addo . I worked full time there for 4 years,” she said.

Meanwhile, Madam Akosua Frema Osei-Opare, has revealed that her granddaughter might be a career politician.

According to her, although none of her four children ventured into politics, her 18-year-old grandchild exhibits signs of becoming a promising politician.

“None of them is into politics, but I must say that I think my granddaughter will be. She is now 18.”

She stated that she could have unknowingly influenced the teenager since she has taken her on trips to campaign for the ruling NPP.

“I believe she will be [a politician] because of the way she follows my work. She follows me around during the campaign period.

“In 2020, she volunteered to do social media work [for the NPP]. She is the type who will spray her hair into NPP colours, so I suspect she wants to be a politician, but I am watching,” she told host Lexis Bill.
