Chairman of the Narcotics Control Board, Captain Nkrabea Effah Dartey, has confirmed that Eric Amoateng, Member of parliament for Nkoranza North, is indeed the man who was been busted in the US for drug trafficking.

...
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is already nursing hopes of regaining one of the seats it lost to the New Patriotic Party (NPP), following reports of the arrest of the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for Nkoranza North, Eric Amoateng, in New York last week.
The NDC's hopes derive from the fact that in the event of a conviction of the arrested MP, the seat would be declared vacant and therefore, up for grabs.
Reports confirmed by our Canada-based columnist, and a broadcast on Joy FM also relying on the world wide web, indicate that the MP for Nkoranza North, Honourable Amoateng, is one of the two Ghanaians busted in New York on Saturday November 12 2005, for possessing hard drugs, namely heroin, with a street value of $6 million.
...
According to a leading Member of Parliament, Mr. Amoateng did not attend any Parliamentary session last week.
The Chronicle has it that Mr. Amoateng, who is also a chief in a suburb of Nkoranza, has since his assumption of office as MP, not made any contribution on the floor.
His colleagues told The Chronicle that the Member was in the House on the reconvening of Parliament, but before the budget was read, he slipped out and has not been heard from till now.
A member of the Committee on Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs, Honourable Amoateng, popularly known as Nana Amoateng, was regarded as a philanthropist in his constituency.
