Former Minister of Energy,
Boakye Agyarko has again debunked the rumours that he is lacing his boots to
contest parliamentary primary on the ticket of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP)
for Lower Manya Krobo Constituency in the Eastern Region.
“I have never dreamt of
such and haven’t taken any decision to contest any seat. It’s false information
just to tarnish my image” he said through a text message to DAILY
GUIDE, adding “There is nothing like that. My focus is to build a
stronger party in Krobo and that’s all I seek to do.”
Apart from parliament, there are
reports that he is set to contest President Akufo-Addo in the next flagbearer
race of the NPP but the former Energy Minister, again refuted the report,
describing it as “complete fabrication by some faceless persons for mischievous
The former Energy Minister,
since he was ousted from the Akufo-Addo government, has
been busily initiating moves to break the political dominance of the opposition
National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Krobo enclave.
The NDC has over the years
enjoyed massive support in three Krobo Constituencies -Yilo, Upper Manya and
Lower Manya Krobo in both parliamentary and presidential elections touting the
area as part of its political world bank.
He has since been helpful to the NPP in the Krobo enclave with logistics.
