Political Background of Ahafo Ano North.
The Ahafo Ano North Parliamentary seat seems to be a swinging one, that is, it keeps alternating between the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) since 1992.
Mr. George Kwasi Adjei Annim of the Egle party occupied the seat in 1992, followed by Mr. Baffour Annor of the NDC in 1996.
In 2001, Kwame Owusu Frimpong took over the seat for the New Patriotic Party for two terms, until he lost the NPP internal primary to Richard Akuoko Adiyiah, who won the seat in 2009.
The seat returned to the NDC in 2013, when Akwasi Adusei won the parliamentary election in 2012.
Then Suleman Adamu Sanid annexed the seat for the New Patriotic party in 2016 and 2020 for another two terms, until his decision not to seek re-election in the 2024 elections.
With this declaration by Suleman Adamu Sanid, the stage is now set for party members to aspire for the seat. Enter Kwaku Fosu Frimpong, a native of Tepa, to bid for the seat.
His presence has long been felt in the constituency through his philanthropic activities in the area.

About 1,000 constituents, including 720 delegates of the NPP were also drawn from three zones in the District to undergo a similar training programme. The objective of his benevolence is to bring hope and build the Ahafo Ano North Constituency in unity, towards the 2024 elections.
