The stripped winner of the New Patriotic Party(NPP) Klottey Korle elections held August 2 2015, Nii Noi Nortey has dismissed reports that he has problems with the party’s Flagbearer Nana Akufo Addo.
According to him, his detractors who are bent on scuttling his chances in the upcoming election re-run are responsible for the propagation of such false claims.
There have been reports that Nana Akufo Addo, whose lawyer and friend Philip Addison was defeated by Nii Noi Nortey in the constituency primary, once traveled with Nii Noi Nortey but refused to mention his name when doing the introduction.
Some political watchers held the view that Nana Akufo Addo’s move went to confirm his dislike for Nii Noi Nortey.
However speaking to Kweku Owusu Adjei on Si Me So on Kasapa 102.3 FM, Nii Noi Nortey explained that Nana Addo during the said incident acknowledged all present, except that he as the leader of the NPP couldn’t have taken sides at the time because there was still dispute about the elections.
“When we went to Tema, Nana Addo mentioned the names of us all the three contestants, and asked us to try and solve the problems concerning the election and the tension in the constituency. I have worked with Nana Addo before as the constituency chairman and I know he’ll not hold anything against me”.
The party is holding a rerun of the election on Saturday 27 February after the earlier one held in 2015 which was won by Nii Noi Nortey had its results challenged in court.
Nii Noi Nortey expressed confidence of winning the elections to deliver the Klottey Korle seat for the NPP come the November Parliamentary elections.
