Failed parliamentary aspirant in the Afram Plains North constituency, Emmanuel Aboagye Didier has dismissed media reports suggesting he will be filing as an Independent candidate for the upcoming parliamentary polls.

In denial of the said publication by the Daily Guide newspaper, Mr Didier contends that he has no intention of going solo in the parliamentary contest as being purported.

“This is only calculated to make me unpopular and if this false rumour being churned out is a way of giving my opponents a respite, then they have failed woefully. I’m challenging the polls in court and I won’t lose my right in the NDC either today or forever.”

The failed aspirant who is also the incumbent Member of Parliament for the area, has earlier filed a writ in court(General Jurisdiction court 3 -Accra) to challenge the party’s primary which saw Ms Betty Crosby-Mensah, elected as the NDC Parliamentary Candidate for the Afram Plains North constituency.

Ms Betty Crosby-Mensah was the Deputy National Coordinator of the Youth Employment Authority

She beat four males including the current MP- Mr Aboagye Didier, at the NDC primaries, becoming the first woman ever to contest the seat.
