The Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency is one of the constituencies most Ghanaians will be watching for.

The main contenders for that seat are the incumbent NPP MP, Lydia Alhassan and the NDC's John Dumelo.

But the surprising bit is the introduction of an independent aspirant who says he will beat both the NPP and NDC candidates.

In an exclusive interview with YEN.com.gh, the independent aspirant for the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency, Richard Mawuli Amegatse noted that he is the person who will bring happiness to the people.

He took a jab at the NDC's candidate, John Dumelo, stating that "we are not going to act in parliament".

He also promised that when he becomes MP, he will ensure Ghanaians get a refund of their visa fees when they apply and don't get.
