The NPP Member of Parliament- elect for Nsuta Kwamang Beposo in the Ashanti region,Mrs Adelaide Ntim, has denied charges that she is a dual citizen of Ghana and the United States of America.
Adelaide Ntim, also known as Yaa Agyeiwaa, narrating her current predicament to news men at Nsuta, she said her winning of the seat in the just ended parliamentary election was born out several frivolous accusations by her own party members who were against her during the primaries.
She accused some leadership in the constituency for peddling such unwarranted accusations to the public.
The NPP MP elect said she was fully aware of the requirements of becoming an MP, and hence would not do anything to jeopardise her ambition.
She brought out printed copies of the renunciation documents for public viewing to support her claims.
She challenged those accusing her to do a background check from her or the American Embassy in Accra properly before making unsubstantiated claims that she holds a dual citizenship.
Mrs. Ntim disclosed that she was ready to face her accusers in court if really they want the truth of her nationality to be resolved.
“I heard some of the NDC members are trending my USA passport that I have not renounced my citizenship, but that is untrue. I have renounced it and I want all my supporters and loved ones to keep calm. And those people in the NPP who are feeding our opponents this false allegation, I am warning them should not to take me for granted because the next time I see same things I am a going to sue all those people,” she vowed.
“Whether they like it or not I am now the MP elect for the good people of Nsuta Kwamang Bepose Constituency and nothing can change it,” she said this to the admiration of some NPP supporters who were all clad in the party paraphernalia.
She captured the seat from Dr. Kwame Asafu Adjei, the incumbent NPP MP for the constituency and won the seat with 23,622 out of the 32,943 valid votes cast, representing 71.7 per cent.
Meanwhile, Victor Osei Poku, a member of the communication team of in the constituency and the region added that the performance of the MP elect was a record in the constituency and warned perpetrators in the party not to undermine Adelaide Ntim.
We the faithful party supporters are ready to defend the one that we have entrusted their votes to. “We want to send a very firm warning whether within or without that those who are behind this machinations to stop since the mandate of the people is emphatic and final. We want to tell everybody that nobody venture into political entrepreneurship.
If they have gone lost with it let them turn their remaining resources into other business ventures and not to stick this outmoded antics of political gimmicks,” he fumed.
