The Member of Parliament (MP) for Fomena Constituency, Lawyer Andrews Amoako Asiamah, has written to the Speaker of Parliament officially declaring his decision to align with the NPP Caucus in Parliament.

“For the avoidance of doubt, I do hereby affirm that I shall cooperate and collaborate with the NPP Caucus in the Eighth Parliament,” he concluded.
