After the list was made public less than a week ago, three people have already said that they do not want to be on it.

These three comprise a member of the subcommittee on tourism and creative arts, a member of the subcommittee on sports, and a member of the subcommittee on economy.

Charles Osei Asibey, Subcommittee on Sports Member

The veteran journalist, Charles Asibey, who is also President of the Africa Armwrestling Federation and Vice President of the World Armwrestling Federation, declined the appointment via a February 25, 2024, statement.

According to Osei Asibey, he made the decision to remain apolitical by declining to join the campaign subcommittee.

He stated that he thinks it’s critical to maintain objectivity and neutrality in his current positions within the sports industry.

The highlife artist maintains that he was not associated with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and that he was not legally appointed to the manifesto committee.

The “rap dacta” said in a news release dated February 24, 2024, that he had not received compensation for accepting the position.

“I want to reassure my esteemed audience and stress that I am still apolitical and nonpartisan, just as I have been throughout my whole professional life. I was neither invited formally to serve on the committee for the arts and tourism manifesto on my terms as a nonpartisan participant, nor have I received any compensation from H.E. The Vice President’s campaign team.

“Indeed, when it comes to contributing policy opinion towards the advancement of the Arts and Culture in Ghana, I am respectfully open to all political or ideological persuasions, be they NPP, NDC, CPP, Independent, or other, that may want me to openly and sincerely lend my knowledge to develop this noble industry,” a portion of his statement read.

Co-chair of the Economy Subcommittee Abena Amoah offers a disclaimer

The Ghana Stock Exchange (GSE) declared in an official statement that Abena Amoah, its CEO, had not at any time been contacted by the campaign team and that she was not the person named as co-chair of the specific subcommittee.

We would like to make it clear that the woman identified as Ms. Abena Amoah on the list is not the managing director of the Ghana Stock Exchange. The GSE statement said, in part, “Our Ms. Abena Amoah has not been approached, nor has there been any discussion or agreement on the subject matter with the campaign team.”

The various factions within the political establishment possessed an elaborate roster of individuals anticipated to back the committee leaders, who were revealed earlier in the week in a condensed form of the manifesto committee.
