The Member of Parliament for Bimbila, Dominic Nitiwul has said His Excellency Amissah Arthur as the NDC Vice President would not add anything substancial to the electoral fortunes of the ruling party come December election.

According to him H.E Amissah Arthur has a difficulty in advancing the course of the NDC as his name recognition is virtually non existent. ” You go to the villages and you mention Amissah Arthur and nobody knows him, even the president has that challenge even though his recognition is a bit better” he said.

Vice President Amissah Arthur was on Wednesday formally outdoored as the NDC Vice Presidential candidate for the impending general election.

However speaking on Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana show on Wednesday, Hon. Nitiwul casted doubt on Mr Amissah Arthur’s ability to even deliver votes in the Central region which is his own home region as he is not popular like the late President Atta Mills or President John Mahama.

”His ability to move out on his own to deliver votes for NDC is suspect, and that is a problem for the NDC to solve, they can decide how to use him for their advantage. I don’t see him leading NDC crusade in Ashante or Eastern Region when the president is somewhere else campaining” Hon. Nitiwul added.
