A leading member of Pressure Group Occupy Ghana, George Andah has expressed his intentions to challenge the incumbent Member of Parliament for Awutu Senya West, Hannah Tetteh in the 2016 general elections.
The former Chief Marketing Officer of MTN Ghana, who confirmed this to citifmonline.com said he was ready to serve the constituency and the country.
“I am no angel but I have always been guided by certain values and principles and I believe that … my experience puts me in a good place to serve Ghana. I am with the new Ghanaian who believes that right is right and wrong is wrong irrespective political background you may have or political leader you admire,” he said.
Before Andah gets the nod to challenge Hannah Tetteh for the seat he has to win the NPP Parliamentary primaries which has been set for May, 24th, 2015.
Hannah Tetteh won the Awutu Senya West constituency seat in the December 2012 parliamentary election by 55.47% of the total votes cast as against Oppey Abbey who managed to poll only 44.53 %.
She served for one term as National Democratic Congress(NDC) Member of Parliament on the opposition benches and did not contest her seat in the next election.
She however returned to Parliament in 2013 after winning the seat in 2012.
