He based on this expressed his disappointment saying that Mr Andrew Asiamah Amoako whom he has known for long jas been avoiding him and his calls since he was pronounced the winner of the just-ended elections. Philip Ofori Asante went into the Fomena parliamentary primaries with the incumbent MP, Andrew Asiamah and bagged votes to become the selected candidate. All agitation arisen that the incumbent should have been left to lead to maintain the seat. Eventually, he went independent and won with huge margin of 2,007 meaning if he hadn't, the NPP would have lost the seat to the NDC candidate on the day.
