The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Okaikoi South, Nana Akomea has officially confirmed that he is no longer interested in contesting the parliamentary seat of the party.

The revelations come after weeks of speculations about whether or not the four term parliamentary candidate would run for the seat in 2012.

Nana Akomea, who was recently appointed Communications Director of the NPP told Joy News, Paa Kwesi Asare that he took the decision in spite of consistent pressure on him not to abdicate the seat.

He said having spent 16 years in Parliament, “I feel that I must move on, I will still be in politics, but I feel that I must move on from the constituency work.”

Nana Akomea said he took the decision after the 2008 elections.

He said he will focus his attention on building the party’s communication.
