NPP’s running mate race: Traders in 38 communities in Ahafo Ano South West district endorse Frema Opare

Traders from thirty-eight (38) communities in and around the Ahafo Ano South West district in the Ashanti Region have thrown their support for the selection of Akosua Frema Osei Opare as the New Patriotic Party (NPP) running mate for 2024 presidential elections.

The traders from Kunsi, Barniekrom, Tepa, Domeabra, Abuakwa, Bomaa, Mpasaaso, Hiamankwa and others have confident that the candidature of the Chief of Staff at the Presidency will be a major boost for the partys chance of winning the elections.

They noted that they are aware of the contributions of the Chief of Staff to the national development, especially the Free SHS Policy which has gained popularity, adding, it was through her wise counsel to the government that has become successful.

The traders have thus appealed to the NPP leadership and the flagbearer Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to select Akosua Frema Osei Opare as the running mate.

Addressing the media at the Kunsu Market Day on Friday, spokesperson for the traders, Elvis Ofosu Kwarteng, stated Akosua Frema Osei Opare has in recent times be admired by all the people of political and ethnic shades in the Ahafo Ano South West district.

This, he explained that the NPP must settle on someone who can appeal for votes from not only from the NPP but from other political parties, and the Chief of Staff qualifies for that.

“We may be at Kunsu but we are aware of the good works including the benevolent activities of  Frema Osei Opare towards market women, the youth and children of Ghana and so we are sure that with such a character as running mate to Dr Bawumia we are sure to galvanise massive support for the NPP in the December 7 polls”, Mr Kwarteng stated.

“With the diverse backgrounds of people in Ahafo Ano South West it is important that the NPP selects a running mate who could best appeal to the people and attract their votes to the NPP fold and for us Madam Frema Osei Opare is ideal for us”, the spokesperson stressed.

Mr Kwarteng noted that what most people in the communities are looking for is someone who could best show concern for their living conditions and work to support them.

The spokesperson said the NPP government constructed some sheds and stalls for them at the market place but is in tartars; the floor of the market and the main arena get flooded anytime it rained heavily.

With what they have been seen at the Bantama, Kejetia and Race Course, the traders are confident Madam Frema Opare is the best person to help them out as she has done in the aforementioned markets.

“The NPP government constructed this market but there are no public utility services or places of convenience, but we believe the selection of Frema Opare would enable her to extend support to us and other markets across Ghana, Kwarteng posited.
