NPP parliamentary candidate for Korley Klottey, Philip Addison is disturbed by Nii Noi Nortey’s decision to go independent, the former’s camp concedes.
The spokesperson for lawyer Philip Addison’s camp, Norman Yemetey told Onua FM’s afternoon show, Ghana Dadwene hosted by Bright Asempa that the development will seriously affect Addison’s chances of winning the seat.
“There is no way Nii Noi will win the election without Addison and there is no way Addison will win the seat without Nii Noi,” he explained.
Nii Noi Nortey declared his intention to contest the November 7 parliamentary election as an independent candidate on Wednesday.
“It has gotten to this because the masses, the youth, the voiceless are calling onto Nii Noi Nortey to stand as an independent candidate. I am for the people. I aim to serve the people,” explained his decision.
Addison polled 396 out of the 765 votes cast to beat Nii Noi Nortey, who polled 367 votes in the recently re-ran primary in the constituency.
After weighing the effect of Nii Noi going independent on their electoral fortunes, Norman Yemetey said Addison’s camp will do everything to bring Nii Noi back into the party.
“We will see how best we can bring him on board because I don’t think we have lost him. We need Nii Noi in our camp. We need Nii Noi in NPP,” he said.
