NDC Organiser is a joker …says NPP parliamentary candidate
From Isaac Akwetey-Okunor, Koforidua
The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary Candidate (PC) for New Juaben South Constituency in the Eastern Region, Dr. Mark Assibey-Yeboah has described the Eastern Regional Organizer of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) Mr. Bismark Tawiah Boateng as a joker.
According to the NDC stalwart, the ruling party would arrest the “ghost” that has hounded the party in the area for some timen now as the country goes to the polls in December. The NDC Regional Organizer claimed the impressive performance of the party in the entire region and the constituency in particular would lead the party to victory in the December elections.
Making the prediction during a zonal rally of the party in Koforidua last Tuesday to introduce the Parliamentary Candidate of the party, Dr. Kwaku Owusu Acheapong to the constituents, Mr. Tawiah Boateng said not only would the party win the parliamentary seat but would get at least 50 percent of the presidential votes in the region.
Mr. Tawiah Boateng hinted that, the NPP did not do anything to improve the lots of the people in the region in the eight years of their governance and that the NDC has demonstrated its commitment towards the development of the people in the region.
Responding to these claims in an interview with the Chronicle, the NPP candidate said the NDC organizer was day dreaming and called on him to wake up from his dream.
Despite admitting that he would not be complacent with his chances of winning the elections with a wider margin since elections cannot be predicted, he was still confident that NPP would retain the seat in the December elections. According to Dr. Assibey-Yeboah the NDC has not done anything for the people in the region which could woo them to turn their back to the NPP. He appealed to members of the party not to relent on the massive development record of the NPP but rather go out to campaign for the party towards victory.
