In a statement, Obour said: “I was not very clear in my mind then, as I had other competing considerations.

"After very extensive consultations with my maker (God), immediate family, friends and loved ones, the call on me to avail myself of service is overwhelming.

I am very happy to announce today, the 24th day of January 2020 that I, Bice Osei Kuffour (Obour) have firmly decided to contest the NPP primaries in the Asante-Akyem South Constituency to serve my people and contribute to improving the electoral fortunes of the great New Patriotic Party (NPP) ahead of the 2020 general elections when given the nod”.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a former Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Suhum, Margaret Ansei is questioning why Ghana’s Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia isn’t on the committee set up to investigate the depreciation of the Cedi.

According to the former National Democratic Congress (NDC) appointee, Dr. Bawumia who was once the NPP’s economic wizard has been reduced to nothing because he has lost his usefulness.
