Adom TV journalist Omanhene Kwabena Asante has warned Eugene Arhin that he will lose his parliamentary bid for the Awutu Senya East constituency after being endorsed by the President, Nana Akufo-Addo.
Speaking on Asempa FM, Omanhene said the President’s actions which are in contravention of party directives will breed bad blood for Eugene Arhin.
“Tell Eugene Arhin, the president has spoilt his campaign…if he indeed wants to run for the Awutu Senya East seat, the president has opened the floodgates for party people to disregard and disrespect the new executives,” Omanhene said.
Omanhene called for the President to stop campaigning for his Communications Director since it makes the work of party executives harder if the leader of the party himself cannot follow the rules.
“So a president goes for regional tour to inspect development works, what has that got to do with Eugene Arhin who lobbies for projects to come to the area and that he should be considered when the time comes…” he quizzed.
“The president should stop that, he did that with Asenso, he should stop that… because when the president goes wayward, party members and Ghanaians will follow suit, he should stop that…were we not here when new executives announced modalities to rein in members… look at what the president is saying?”
Finally returning to Eugene Arhin, he told him point blank the President’s support is what would doom his campaign.
“If you align with the president, you will lose because the president has nothing to lose,” he added.
President Nana Akufo-Addo recently threw his support behind his communications director, Eugene Arhin, during his recent trip to the Central Region.
Akufo-Addo said during a speech: “As you know one of your very own, a Director of Communications at the presidency, Eugene Arhin, has done a very good job in lobbying persistently for the road to be constructed just as he did for the Kasoa-Bawjiase road as I assure you it would be completed before 2024,”
He added that Arhin would be a great representative if selected to represent the constituency as their Member of Parliament.
