The party's central regional Organiser, Michael M. Derry, later told 3 News that Migyimah allegedly had an affair with the wife of the Assin Central General Secretary, Sadique Broni.

"The secretary installed a camera in his bedroom, so anytime they were involved in the act, the camera captured it,” Derry claimed.

The Assin Central seat is currently occupied by the New Patriotic Party's Kennedy Agyapong.

In the last election, Nurudeen polled 14,747 votes, representing 42.74% of the votes cast, against Kennedy Agyapong's 57.26%.
