With barely twenty one months to elections Honorable Alexander Afenyo Markin has gotten himself an early contender for the 2020 parliamentary elections.
James Kofi Annan President of Challenging Height who is also a friend of the Afutu legislator has declared his intention to contest incumbent MP for Afutu in the 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections. This stems from what he describe as an attempt by the MP to hijack the whole winneba system and wants to destroy it.
In an interview with host Francis Abban on StarrFm MorningStarr, Mr. Annan revealed that, during the run-up to the 2016 general elections, he threw his weight behind the MP with hopes that he will be the solution to the plight of the people of Afutu but, unfortunately he was mistaken.
“Afenyo is the problem of Efutu and Winneba. He has hijacked the whole system and wants to destroy it. I don’t know why he is doing this but I am going to resist him. I will contest him as an independent candidate soon” he exclaimed.
However speaking to the issue, Hon. Afenyo Markin stated that Mr James is only nursing his political ambitions, nonetheless he is not going to tow the line that he taken.
“it just a political talk.The last thing i will do is to say unpalatable things about James”. he said.
