He subsequently wrote to the new speaker Alban Bagbin informing him about his decision to do business with the NPP’s side of the House, a decision that saw to the NPP being declared the majority in Parliament.

A statement issued and signed by his aide, Seth Oduro on Thursday March 18 said “Our attention has been drawn to, a publication in which the honorable Member of Parliament and second deputy speaker of Parliament ,Andrew Amoako Asiamah is alleged to have stated that he is under pressure to declare whether or not he intends to contest the 2024 parliamentary elections on the ticket of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
