Stephen Amoah, Nhyiaeso Member of Parliament (MP), says he is unconcerned about criticism and believes he would lose the next New Patriotic Party (NPP) primaries.
Mr Amoah, who also serves as Deputy Trade Minister, says he would be sad if this happened because he has paid his dues.
However, the seat is not a familial heritage that he can keep forever.
“I am not afraid to lose the seat because it is not my family inheritance and God will not even allow that to happen except He doesn’t want me to contest again.
“If it is about track record, then the footprint is evident in the constituency,” he said in an interview on Accra-based Okay FM.
Mr. Amoah, who is running for re-election, faces stiff competition from former MPs Kennedy Kankam and George Odoom.
However, elections in the seat have been temporarily halted due to an interlocutory injunction brought by Mr. Kankam, the Asokore Mampong Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), whose legitimacy has been questioned.
Asked if the former MP poses any threat, Mr Amoah rebutted, “I am not afraid of Kennedy Kankam being in the race because he can never beat me in Nhyaieso. I don’t believe in going unopposed because I wouldn’t have become an MP if there was no contest.”
Mr Amoah snatched the seat from Mr Kankam in 2020 with 332 votes as against the latter’s 315 votes.
