After Kwame A Plus decided to run for the Gomoa Central seat in the upcoming general elections in 2024, attention has also been drawn to Naana Eyiah Quansah, the incumbent.
Kwame A Plus had already announced during his father’s funeral that he would run as an independent candidate for the office of Member of Parliament.
“I won’t be running against the NDC or NPP in 2024. I’ll remove the local MP from office. I will win any contest I enter with someone. I am very certain that I will win this seat, he declared.
I intend to run as the single independent candidate for the Ghanaian parliament in 2025, which is extremely likely to happen. If you wish to run for office, this constituency is yours; we’ll wait for you. I will beat the person if you arrive with money, flattering words, or anything else that they bring. I am the most powerful person. In 2024, neither the NPP nor the NDC should run for the seat; instead, they should permit me to enter parliament without opposition, he told the reporters.
Since the end of the 7th parliament through the 8th parliament of the Fourth Republic, the Gomoa Central seat has alternated between the NDC and NPP.
The NDC held the office from 2012 to 2016, and then the NPP took over in 2020.
Let’s refresh your memory on Naana Eyiah Quansah, the current Gomoa Central MP and the leading candidate for A Plus.
She has occupied the seat twice.
The Gomoah Central seat was won by Naana Eyiah Quansah of the NPP in 2016 and she kept it after the 2020 national elections.
In the general election of 2020, she defeated Jonamoah Moses Jehu-Appiah of the NDC with 20, 527 votes, or 56.81% of the total votes cast.
She is the acting interior minister.
