The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has begun initiating moves to break the political dominance of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Krobo enclave.
The NDC has over the years enjoyed massive support in three Krobo Constituencies, Yilo, Upper Manya and Lower Manya Krobo in both parliamentary and presidential elections touting the area as part of its political world bank.

The NPP has commenced a multifaceted agenda geared towards crushing the NDC’s monopoly in the Krobo enclave.
Speaking on the sidelines of a meeting with the party’s Assembly members, Boakye Agyarko, former Minister of Energy declared that the trend would change from 2020.

“It is critical the NPP retains power in 2020 to enable it to successfully implement to the letter its social interventions for the citizenry to enjoy the benefits.
“Whereas the party seeks to consolidate the gains made in Upper Manya Krobo where it won the parliamentary seat in 2016 for the first time, it is also targeting to capture three other seats in the Krobo bloc including Asuogyaman.

“My duty for assuming responsibility for the Krobo bloc is not to be in a beauty contest, it is to win seats, my target is that we need to bag all the four seats into the corner of NPP, we want to use the platform for encouragement and forum for further planning and strategising on how to approach the 2020 elections but key is enjoining us to work harder and also to focus on quality of unity and togetherness,” Mr Agyarko cautioned.

Mr Agyarko was fired as the Minister of Energy in August following the backlash that greeted the novation and amendment agreement that sought to buy out the deal Ameri Energy had with the government under President John Mahama and be handed over to a third party Mytilineos for 15 years. –
