While it is unclear what led to the dismissal of the NPP parliamentary aspirant for the Asawase constituency, rumour has it that, it was because he took the party to court during the primaries.

Manaf has sued the party over what he says is unfair treatment being meted out to him by the party in the Asawase parliamentary contest.

The Vetting Committee disqualified Mr Ibrahim from the contest which left Seidu as the sole contender.

He is the former Ashanti Regional Secretary of the NPP.
