The Executive Secretary for National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) Dr Prince Hamidu Armah has picked forms to contest the Kwesiminitsim Constituency primaries of the governing New Patriotic Party.

Addressing the jubilant party supporters after picking the form, the Education guru said the constituency needs a more dynamic and competent leader to champion their developmental agenda.
He further indicated that his decision to run for the seat is to provide a plan for economic growth of the Constituency which will help provide jobs for the people
Dr. Armah stated that he is the one with the right connection and leadership acumen to lead the Constituency in its pursuit of development.
Meanwhile, the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for Adansi Asokwa Constituency in the Ashanti region Kwabena Tahiru Hammond known in Politics as K.T Hammond is seeking support from traditional leaders of Adansi to stop Mr Sammy Binfo Dakwa from contesting him in the upcoming parliamentary primaries of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The Adansihemaa Nana Amanimaa Dade II reportedly invited the Constituency Chairman, Mr. Kwame Owusu to her Palace and pleaded with him to allow K.T Hammond to run in primaries unopposed to guarantee him a sixth term in parliament.
However, Chairman Owusu said he politely requested of the Queen mother to stay out of the party’s internal contest, to allow the delegates of the constituency to choose their Parliamentary Candidate for the party.
Chairman Owusu confirmed to Ultimate FM’s Isaac Bediako in a telephon conversation of honouring such a meeting with the Queen Mother.
