Christopher Addae, former Member of Parliament for the Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai Constituency, has announced his intention to contest for his former parliamentary seat on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2024 general elections. Mr. Addae, who is widely regarded as the “Godfather” of the NPP in the constituency, won the seat in 2004 and retained it in 2008, before losing to Kingsley Aboagye Gyedu in 2012.

His return to the constituency is seen as a significant threat to the current MP, Alfred Obeng-Boateng, who has reportedly lost his support base due to internal conflicts with the constituency executives. Mr. Addae hopes to take advantage of the current divisions and win the seat for the NPP in the next general elections.

Mr. Addae’s track record in the constituency speaks for itself, having secured 52% of the votes in the 2004 parliamentary election. He is considered a unifying figure within the NPP, and his return is likely to boost the party’s chances of winning the seat. However, the party will need to address the internal conflicts within the constituency, which could pose a significant threat to their chances in the next general elections.

For the most part, Mr. Addae’s announcement has set the stage for what promises to be a hotly contested race in the Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai constituency. His return to the political scene has rekindled the hopes of many NPP supporters who have grown disillusioned with the current MP’s leadership. Mr. Addae’s popularity within the party could also help to rally support for the NPP, which suffered a significant loss in the 2020 parliamentary elections.

In conclusion, the NPP’s chances of retaining the Bibiani-Anhwiaso-Bekwai constituency in the 2024 general elections have been given a boost by Mr. Addae’s return. However, the party will need to address the internal conflicts within the constituency and work to unify their support base to secure victory in the upcoming elections. The next few months leading up to the primaries will be crucial for the party, as they seek to select a candidate who can win the hearts and minds of the electorate.
