Elected Assembly Members in the Asokwa Municipality have unanimously endorsed their colleague, Oscar RICHES to contest and be voted for as 2nd Vice chairman of the Ashanti Regional New Patriotic Party (NPP).
At a press conference Wednesday afternoon, the elected members in unison touted the potentials of their colleague.
They noted that Mr RICHES was adept to operational activities of the Party and could use his influence as well as work ethic to achieve more for the party.
Spokesperson for the group and Presiding Member at the Asokwa Municipal Assembly, Elliot Fosu Barnor said, “Our brother has been through the mill of the NPP having held several positions in same as well as mobilising support for same”.
Mr Barnor recounted the sacrifices of their colleague who is currently the Assembly man for old Asokwa.
He noted that Mr RICHES with support from other Assembly members across the Ashanti Region mobilised support for the NPP in the 2016 elections.
This activity and subsequent ones that the aspiring second Vice-Chair led in 2020, Mr Barnor intimated culminated in the victory of the NPP in that year’s general elections.
“These qualities put Mr RICHES far above any of the persons contesting for the 2nd Vice chairman position in the Ashanti NPP”, the spokesperson noted.
