Former President of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGHA) Bice Osei Kuffour has formally announced his intention to contest the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary primary in the Asante Akyem South Constituency.
Popularly known as Obuor, the veteran musician said he would pick nomination forms on Tuesday, January 28 to begin the journey of representing the people of his home town in Parliament.
“I am very happy to announce today the 24th Day of January 2020 that I, Bice Osei Kuffour (Obour) have firmly decided to contest the NPP primaries in the Asante Akyem South Constituency to serve my people and contribute to improve the electoral fortunes of the great New Patriotic Party (NPP) ahead of the 2020 general elections when given the nod,” the former MUSIGHA President said in a statement to the media.
There were rumours last year that Obour was gearing up to become a lawmaker in Ghana.
“I was not very clear in my mind then as I had other competing considerations,” he stated.
“After very extensive consultations with my maker (God), immediate family, friends and loved ones, the call on me to avail myself to service in overwhelming.”
Asante Akyem South Constituency is currently held by the NPP with Kwaku Asante-Boateng as the sitting MP.
He is yet to announce his future with many of the view that he will seek re-election.
The primaries are scheduled to be held on April 25, 2020.
Nominations were opened on Monday, January 20.
