NPP PARLIAMENTARY PRIMARIES: “Nothing Can Stop Me From Contesting For The Seat” - Obour
Former President of Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Bice Osei Kufuor says nothing can stop him from contesting for the seat of Member of Parliament (MP) in the Asante Akyem South Constituency in the Ashanti Region on the ticket of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
According to Mr. Kufuor, he will go all length to see this dream come true adding that his music career cannot prevent him from winning.
Speaking on an Accra-based television station, Mr. Kufuor said “Who are our politicians? When you go to Parliament now, who are there? There is a hairdresser there. There is a businesswoman there. There are market women and doctors there. What stops a musician from being there? Is music not part of the things we do as a country? If not for anything, music plays a major role in most of our lives. Don’t we have entertainment? So, there’s nothing wrong with having a musician in Parliament. At Parliament, we discuss tourism, creative arts, culture, and several other things that music is keyed in. It’s actually a plus for Parliament to have a musician,” he stressed.
Known in showbiz as Obour, the “Konkontibaa” hitmaker also mentioned that he sees nothing wrong with a musician becoming a Parliamentarian.
Thinknewsonline.com is learning a group calling itself Asante Akyem South Youth Coalition paid a courtesy call on Obour pleading with him to contest the seat.
The Former MUSIGA President has confirmed he will contest for the seat.
The governing NPP says it is putting in measures to ensure that it holds its Parliamentary primaries in the various Constituencies across the country.
Mr. Osei Kufuor has already filed his nomination for the parliamentary elections.
