An aide to Vice President Dr Mahamadu Bawumia, Manaf Ibrahim has filed his nomination forms at the Asawase Constituency office of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) to contest the party’s parliamentary primaries.

Mr Ibrahim who is a former deputy Ashanti Regional Secretary of the NPP filed his forms amidst pomp.

He stormed the Asawase constituency office on Thursday, August 1, 2019 with hundreds of supporters made up of his family, friends, and delegates after a cheerful trek in a musical float from Aboabo post office through to the Asawase NPP office.

Ibrahim’s decision defies the party’s Ashanti Regional Executive Council warning to parliamentary candidates hopeful seeking to contest 2016 defeated parliamentary candidates appointed as DCE’s for the three orphan constituencies in the region to halt their plans.
