In that regard, he went on, he has received information to the effect that his constituents will vote against NPP in the next general election.

“Nana Addo doesn’t want our good. Are they trying to tell us Boakye Agyarko did not follow the rightful processes? We don’t want to go deep into this issue.

They shouldn’t paint him black because he has a presidential ambition. Who on this earth doesn’t have an ambition?” He quizzed in an interview on NEAT FM’s morning show dubbed ‘Ghana Montie’.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has appointed Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, John Peter Amewu, as the acting Minister of Energy, until a substantive appointment is made.
