Hon Kwasi Agyemang Gyan Tutu accused some unseen hands within the party of orchestrating his defeat and he is therefore contesting as an independent candidate.

“Upon all my defeat and contesting as an independent candidate am still in good relationship with the General Secretary” he said.

“Due to my hard work during my tenure in the office that is why people in Constituency pushing me to go independent candidate, although am contesting as independent candidate without any party name but I still love the NDC party and royal to them”, he added.

"I have promoted human capital and supported the needy that made me popular which will make me win 2020 the seat", he said.

He noted, the constituency has benefited a lot during his tenure including, roads, infrastructure development, good health care, good water improvement, education among others.

He also outlines numerous goodies and better things for the constituency when voted into power.

Meanwhile, posters of the candidate have already started flooding the area barely a week after the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary Primaries in the area in which he lost to one Sulemana Adam.
