Information gathered indicates that Jeff Konadu refused to yield to pressure from the presidency to step down on basis that he is from Kwahu given that the Eastern Regional Minister,Seth Kwame Acheampong, Eastern regional representative of Council of state Paa Kofi Ansong, and the IGP Dr. George Akuffo Dampare are all from Kwahu, hence not a prudent decision for him to become Regional Chairman.

Kwadwo Boateng Agyemang, cousin of Hackman Owusu Agyemang founding member of NPP however told the media after filing the nomination form allegations that he is being pushed by some bigwigs in the party and the Presidency to contest the position are immaterial because he is a competent and experienced politician to be Regional chairman.

“First of all, is the party that begets the government. Am I not part of the government? I have been a communicator for this party for the last 8 years so the one saying that some bigwigs are behind let me ask them, those supporters following them are they not party members, are they not bigwigs. In the region, everybody knows I am the most senior chairman. I have been constituency chairman for four terms that are 16 years .so let the candidate bring his record it is not a matter of some bigwigs supporting,” he said.
