New Patriotic Party (NPP) activist Kenneth Offei Asah has assured all and sundry that former National Organiser of the party Sammi Awuku is poised to contest the Akropong seat, warning that persons fabricating lies and propaganda against him will not succeed since he is undeterred.
Sammi Awuku, who is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the National Lottery Authority (NLA), has been key in mobilising support for the NPP as a National Youth Organiser and later as National Organiser.
His interest in the Akropong Constituency seat seemed to have riled persons who are hell-bent on denting his image with false accusations and propaganda.
But Mr Kenneth Offei Asah in a Facebook post has clapped back at the detractors, insisting that no amount of sponsored negative reportage can succeed in lowering the image of Mr Awuku.
Mr Offei Asah puts the accusations at the doorstep of the MP for Akropong, Oheneba Nana Asiamah-Adjei.
“You keep sponsoring negative stories about Sammi Awuku, yet it keeps failing.
First, you told your supporters there won’t be Polling Station elections so they can go to sleep! You had a rude awakening when upon all your machinations the People stood firm and insisted there will be elections and there were elections. You approached some Prominent Chiefs up the mountains to support you to divide the constituency so you can take half and Sammi takes half. None of the Chiefs wanted to belong to your divisive ideas let alone come under your “imaginary divided half,” Mr Offei said.
He noted that other attempts to get Mr Awuku not to contest the Akropong seat have failed.
“Again you went behind to encourage Regional Executives of Greater Accra to appeal to the National Officers of the Party, Some MPs and Key people in Government to “convince or force “ Sammi Awuku to go for the Adenta seat.
They tried, ambushed Sammi several times on this matter and even followed him to church just to convince him. That one too failed.
Today, you have sponsored another failed missile attack “claiming Jubilee House has pulled breaks on Sammi Awuku and the President queried him on using NLA funds to sponsor pro-Bawumia Media campaign.
First of all the President has never engaged Mr Awuku in this your propaganda and more so there is no evidence whatsoever in this propaganda!
Madam, my advice is that focus and get ready for your elections because Sammi Awuku, knowing him, won’t comment but is very effective when he just smiles at this your “games”, he added, insisting that Sammy Awuku is determined to take the seat from the incumbent.
Sammy Awuku, according to reliable sources, is one of the best-performing Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) who has had no issues raised against him in the Presidency.
He has been praised by the President for his stellar performance at the NLA 60th anniversary celebration.
That notwithstanding, negative stories about Sammy Awuku deemed to be from supporters of the MP for Akropong, get published every now and then.
But supporters of Mr Awuku are certain that he will wrestle the seat from the incumbent.
