The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Tema West constituency hopes of returning to parliament in 2016 is seriously shaking as a party guru in her constituency is lacing his boots to unseat her.

Former President of the Ghana Institute of Freight Forwarders (GIFF,) Mr. Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah has indicated his readiness to offer Irene Naa Torshie Addo the necessary challenge which can lead to the sealing of the parliamentary career of the vociferous politician.

Mr. Ahenkorah disclosed on Asempa FM's Enkosii Sen programme that the time is ripe for the party to have someone who could bring unity into the party in the constituency.

Hon. Torshie Addo, he indicated has brought division into the party hence necessitating former Majority Leader and NPP MP for the constituency, Mr. Abraham Osei-Aidoo, to go independent in the 2012 elections.

A situation which he noted could have made the NPP lost the seat to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate, Hon. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo in the last election.

He further submitted that the divisive nature of the MP has continuously been making the NPP lose votes in the Tema West constituency.

At the party's office in Tema where he picked his nomination forms, delegates were also full of praise for Mr. Ahenkorah, whom they claimed was someone who could unify the party in the constituency and widen the vote difference between the NPP and the NDC.
