Eugene Boakye Antwi, a member of parliament from the Ashanti region’s Subin Constituency, has said he has nothing against Muslims.

He claimed that his assertions that Akans and Christians were in charge of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) were supported by evidence, not by any personal prejudices.

He clarified that the remark was made in regard to the most recent census results from Ghana, which showed that roughly 71% of the population there identifies as Christian.

He also emphasised the NPP’s strong support base in the political arena, which is largely made up of Akans and Christians.

“What do I have against Muslims, even for me, since my grandmother is Asante Nkremo and goes by the name Fatima?,” he continued. What do I have against Muslims, I ask, since even at my father’s home people refer to it as a Muslim home?

He emphasised that his comments were an appraisal of the political dynamics that were now in play in Ghana rather than an attempt to further any tribal or religious bias.

Eugene went on to emphasise how crucial it is to comprehend the demographic make-up and support networks of political parties in order to effectively predict their electoral possibilities. I’m just expressing the obvious, he replied, because everyone must evaluate their strengths and shortcomings prior to participating in any tournament.
