Former General Secretary of the opposition NPP Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, popularly known as Sir John, has sought to question the marketability of the 22-year-old parliamentary aspirant of the Party for the Kwabre East Constituency, Francisca Oteng-Mensah.
In a no-holds-barred Monday morning interview session with Fiifi Banson on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.3 FM, Sir John took her and a host of others to the cleaners, alleging the delegates who voted for her were largely influenced with money.
He decried the alleged act, saying it does very little to her campaign.
Sir John told Banson the young lady was novice who would need help in appealing to the larger populace.
“We will have to train her. She is a novice. We will have to help her even in terms of taking her round to the chiefs and opinion leaders and all that.”
Oteng-Mensah won Saturday’s elections with some 331 votes, beating the incumbent MP Kofi Frempong who had 189 votes. The other contestant Adjei Sefa had 33 votes.
The NPP went to the polls to elect parliamentary candidates in 245 constituencies for the 2016 elections.
