Why I bowed out of parliament – Carlos Ahenkorah explains

Carlos Ahenkorah, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Tema West district, has declared that he will not run for office again in 2024.

According to reports, a few MPs running on the New Patriotic Party (NPP) platform have stated their intention to step down from their positions in parliament.

Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, MP for Suame; Samuel Atta Akyea, MP for Abuakwa South in the Eastern region; Daniel Kwaku Botwe, MP for Okere, who also serves as the Minister of Local Government, Rural Development, and Decentralization, are some of these MPs. Carlos Ahenkorah is another.

The other members are the following: KT Hammond, Minister of Trade and Industry and MP for Adansi Asokwa; Joe Osei Owusu, First Deputy Speaker and MP for Bekwai; Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, MP for Assin Central; and Francisca Oteng, MP for Kwabre East.

During an interview on Peace FM’s morning show ‘Kokrokoo’, Carlos Ahenkorah explained that he wants to take on a different role, which is to fully support Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

“I feel I can channel my energy into something more beneficial, which is the election of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia as President, and it is a role I can play very well.”

Meanwhile, Carlos has shot down claims that he once accused the Vice President, who is the presidential candidate of the NPP, of being incompetent when he declared his support for Alan Kyerematen.

“Dr. Bawumia and I are very, very close, and there’s no way I’ll stand anywhere to say he’s incompetent. I’m never against him. It can never be the case that my decision is because of Alan Kyerematen. I am NPP through and through. I’ve received a lot of calls trying to change my mind, but my mind is made up,” he said.
