THE RULING National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for Ahafo-Ano North constituency in the Ashanti region, Mr. Akwasi Adusei has assured that he would work hard to change the voting pattern in the constituency. According to him, he intends to change the fortunes of the NDC in the constituency and annex the seat from the NPP, which has occupied it since 2000.
He said he was prepared to liaise with the constituents on regular basis to acquaint himself with the aspirations of the people and to strategise for an effective development plan to improve their lot.
Addressing a large crowd of NDC supporters during his campaign launch at Tepa, over the weekend, the aspirant said he would ensure that he stays in constant touch with his constituents, if he is given the mandate to represent them in parliament, in order to effectively represent their needs and interests in the house.
He said, he is not going to behave like some parliamentarians who always stay at the national capital and forget those who entrusted them with power. He stated that the NDC under President John Mahama intends to change the order of scheme of things and urged the people to change their voting pattern by voting for the NDC in the parliamentary and presidential elections in December.
“I am your son, brother, and my father, mother, children are all in Ahafo Ano, meaning I am a true indigene, an indication that I cannot afford to compromise the development of the district and I will be queried if I fail to deliver to the expectation of my own people,” he said. He also assured the people of security, development and peace.
He told the crowd that when given the nod, he is going to encourage the people as farmers to come together and form cooperatives and in order to help them access loans out of his MP’s common funds to expand their farms.
Mr. Adusei further assured that he would encourage agriculture extension officers to educate farmers on the need to use the improved farming methods, while roads that lead to their farms would be rehabilitated to enable them cart their products to the urban centres for sale, saying: “When agriculture is made attractive, it would encourage the youth to go into it. ”
Mr. Brogya Gyamfi, a Regional executive of the NDC campaign advised the people not to allow petty squabbles to divide them since the party is not for a particular person. He appealed to them not be swayed by the propaganda of the opposition parties.
