PHILIP BASOAH, GRASSROOTS MP
Former polling station executive member, constituency secretary, district chief executive and now member of parliament for Sekyere Kumawu constituency in the Ashanti region of Ghana, Philip Basoah, is the first to represent the constituency for the third time.
The educationist turned politician’s competitive advantage is his glaring appeal to the grassroots, resonating with the top hierarchy of the party as well.
Mr. Basoah’s peace-loving virtue, coupled with his core duties as law maker and lobbyist for projects for his constituency, made him take the seat the third time in the December 7, 2020 elections despite all attempts by strong forces to make his historic victory a mirage.
What Sekyere Kumawu is yearning for is a team player district chief executive to speed up holistic development in president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s second term.
