Joana Gyan Cudjoe, the wife of a famous musician, Keche, has been hit with a major setback in her bid to contest for parliamentary seat in Amenfi Central on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC). It has emerged that she does not qualify to contest for the seat in her native constituency.

The Chairman of the NDC in Amenfi Central, Raphael Andoh, stated that the businesswoman is alien to the party in the constituency and therefore cannot be allowed to contest. He disclosed that Ms. Cudjoe has two party cards – one from Bantama and the other from Amenfi Central, which is against the party’s rules.

According to Mr. Andoh, the party’s rules require that a member can only hold one card, and the card should be from the constituency in which the member is registered. He stated that Ms. Cudjoe is a native of Amenfi Central, but she does not vote in the constituency, and as such, she is not a member of the party in the constituency.

Backing the Amenfi Central Chairman’s position, the Secretary of the party, Richmond Daleke, noted that the party in the constituency cannot authenticate her membership card, and therefore she is not qualified to contest for the seat. He added that the constituency executives must ensure that whoever is elected as a candidate for the party is credible and has no questionable character.

Meanwhile, the Bantama constituency has also disassociated itself from the embattled aspirant. The Chairman, David Kwesi Heridzi, has appealed to the national executives of the party to carry out thorough investigations to unveil the truth behind Ms. Cudjoe’s party card.

Despite the allegations, Ms. Gyan Cudjoe has urged her supporters to disregard rumours of her disqualification. In a press release, she rubbished all allegations against her, saying they have no basis. Ms. Gyan Cudjoe is one of five aspirants contesting the seat in the constituency.
