Third-time New Patriotic Party (NPP) aspirant, Frank Yeboah, is set to follow Benito Owusu Bio, incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) as Parliamentary candidate during the NPP’s primaries in the Atwima Nwabiagya North Constituency.
Mr Yeboah, who hails from Dabaa, first contested Benito in 2016 and 2020. The third-time aspirant comes with a vast knowledge of the terrain and is tipped as favorite to take up the mantle left by Benito who has bowed out from contesting as a 5-time Member of Parliament for the constituency.
Frank currently works with the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) as the Director of Procurement and Projects.
Frank Yeboah’s love for humanity and human development started him on his political journey during his school days at Kumasi Polytechnic, now Kumasi Technical University (KTU), as an ardent advocate of the UP tradition.
He ventured into full-blown politics during then-Candidate John Kufuor’s leadership bid in Sunyani when he organized some like-minded youth in support.
Subsequently, he volunteered his support to actively follow Candidate Kufuor’s campaign throughout the Ashanti Region where he quietly played some vital roles to secure victory.
His passion for the NPP has never been in doubt as demonstrated by his diverse and tireless efforts expended towards the party before and during all major and general elections to date.
Throughout it all, his vision for human development remained consistent as he dared to present himself as an aspirant to serve the Nwabiagya North Constituency in 2016. Although he made very positive headlines for his composure, demeanor, and mental fortitude as a mature politician he lost by a slim twelve-vote margin.
Many were those who urged him to contest the seat as an independent candidate, but he never succumbed to the incessant pressures and exhibited enormous maturity by fully supporting the candidate-elect and the party throughout the campaign period to ensure victory for the party.
Consistently, he has kept faith with the party at all levels and his service was rewarded with an appointment to the Ashanti Regional Youth Wing of the New Patriotic Party as a patron.
Frank’s opponent in the coming primaries is Lawyer Dickson Osei, a former aspirant who previously stood as an independent candidate against Benito, the party’s choice for five consecutive terms.
