Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Akomea says NPP’s incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for Bantama, Henry Kwabena Kokofu is still an ardent member of the ‘Elephant’ fraternity.
Denying claims that the NPP MP has tendered in his resignation letter to the party after he filed to contest the Bantama seat as an independent candidate, Nana Akomea said; “We [NPP] are not aware of his resignation. We have no letter from him (indicating so) and he is not in Ghana as well”
A letter dated October 1, 2016 said to have emanated from the Bantama MP’s camp which went viral over the weekend stated in part; “I wish to formally communicate to all stakeholders of the NPP that, I resign as a member from the party with effect from today.”
“I wish to thank all who supported me during my time as a candidate and also a member of parliament for the Bantama constituency. I have to embark on a personal project and I think it will be a rightful decision to resign and concentrate fully on this mission.”
“I feel many people now question my loyalty to the NPP; upon my decision to run as an independent parliamentary candidate. I equally doubt that, I can remain loyal to the party and it is prudent I resign and then focus on my personal mission. Though I hope to win, but, I would rejoin the party in the event that I lose the upcoming election.”
But speaking on NEAT FM’s morning show dubbed ‘Ghana Montie’, Nana Akomea discounted the report.
“Not all information on social media is factual. The NPP has not received any notification from him [Kokofu],” he said.
He however assured that the party “will resolve all these issues when he (Kokofu) returns”.
