Lawyer Philip Addison who is vying for the Akuapem North Parliamentary seat on the ticket of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has urged the public to disregard reports suggesting that he has made some comments after his vetting.
Addison, who rose to fame during the 2012 election petition hearing at the Supreme Court, is hoping to unseat incumbent and deputy Minister for Information Nana Ama Dokua Asiamah Adjei.
Addison, who lost the Korle Klottey seat in the Greater Accra region during the 2016 elections, was told by the vetting committee that he can't contest the Akuapem North seat because he “hasn’t nurtured the party at the constituency”.
In a communique released by his office, he said his attention has been drawn to several reports on social media suggesting he has been disqualified and has made some comments.
He went on to urge the general public to disregard the reports and added that he will in due time release an official statement on the matter.
