The Deputy Chief of Staff, Francis Asenso-Boakye has filed his forms to contest as MP for Bantama on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party.
This is the third time Asenso-Boakye will be contesting in the Bantama primaries, having failed to woo enough delegates on two occasions.
“In appointing me as Deputy Chief of Staff, I believe His Excellency the President has affirmed me as a person of tact, good judgment and discretion.
This position, with its heavy responsibilities, has enhanced my capacity and prepared me adequately to serve the people of Bantama, both as a legislator and as an agent of development,” he explained.
“Bantama has been very kind to me, right from birth. It has nurtured me into becoming a person of value by instilling in me, a sense of purpose and identity.
