Stephen Atubiga, the founder and leader of the National Liberation Party (NLP), has disclosed how Fiifi Kwetey, general secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), left parliament prior to the 2020 elections.
Stephen Atubiga claims the late former president and hand-picked 2020 Running Mate Fiifi Kwetey for whomever wins the flagbearer race.
In light of this, Fiifi Kwetey made the decision to leave the legislature.
“For this reason, Fiifi Kwetey chose not to reconvene in parliament. On Good Evening Ghana, Atubiga claimed, “He was Rawlings’ running mate candidate and he was told.
Over the course of two terms, from 2012 to 2020, Kwetey served as the MP for Ketu South.
He explained his decision not to pick up nomination forms to run in his party’s parliamentary primary in 2019.
The two-term lawmaker claimed that he made the choice to uphold a 2016 pledge he made not to run for reelection in order to allow room for other contenders.
“In life, you have to give it your best shot when you are given an opportunity, and I believe I have done my best,” he said on Monday, according to host Winston Amoah. In the eight years that he has served as their representative in Parliament, Mr. Kwetey said that he has kept every promise he made to his constituency. He spoke.
However, Stephen Atubiga claims that the MP withdrew from the legislature because the late former president Rawlings had promised him a position as his running partner.
