New entrants in the upcoming New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary primaries are poised to unseat some sitting Members of Parliament (MPs).

MP for Abirem Constituency, Osei Frimpong and Siaka Stevens for Jaman North seem to be sitting on a time bomb as a 39-year–old teacher and another, a geologist seem confident of victory.

The teacher, Frank Mireku, who is a former Constituency Secretary believes he is a grassroots person and better connected with the constituents to solve their problems.
