“NDC will win over 82% of Kpone votes”
From Richard Attenkah, Zenu
This, he said, was a result of the volume of work the party had done in the constituency since assuming office over three and half years ago, which gives him the confidence that the people would give him and the party over 70,000 votes, representing 82% of the total of 85,000 eligible voters in the constituency.
According to him, since taking office, the NDC, under its ‘Better Ghana Agenda,’ had undertaken a number of projects, including roads, supply of clean water, and construction of school buildings among others in the constituency, to the amazement of the residents.
The MP, who is also the Greater Accra Regional Minister, made the declaration when he launched his campaign at Zenu in the Kpone-Katamanso constituency on Sunday.
Present at the campaign launch to give the Regional Minister morale support were some ministers of state, including Madam Sherry Ayittey, Minister for Environment, Science and Technology, Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, Minister for Local Government and Rural Development, and Mr. Ade Coker, Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the NDC among others.
Addressing the crowd, the Kpone-Katamanso MP blamed the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for not extending water supply to towns like Zenu, Oyibi, Katamanso, Gbetsile, among other areas in his constituency, in all the eight years they were in office.
He stated that soon after taking office, he started working with bodies related to the supply of water in the country, and that by March next year, people in the above named towns would begin to enjoy the supply of clean water to their homes.
Afotey Agbo, popularly known as ‘Lion,’ pointed out that under the Mahama-Amissah administration, all deplorable roads in his constituency, especially those in Oyibi, Kubekro, Apolonia, Katamanso and Gbetsile, would see massive facelifts.
He said since he became the MP for the area in 2004, he had been working diligently to ensure that his constituency gets its fair share of the national cake for the betterment of residents in the area.
Mr. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo made a comparison of the education policies of the ruling NDC and opposition NPP, saying the NDC’s policy was more reliable, result oriented, and could give Ghanaians the needed foundation they require.
He said the NDC had a proven track record that showed that as far as the delivery of education in the country was concerned, NPP was no match for the ruling party.
Mr. Ofosu Ampofo, who is also the parliamentary candidate for the Tema West NDC, explained that aside the University of Ghana, Legon, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and Cape Coast University, the NDC built all the public universities across the country today.
“Again, apart from the Accra Polytechnic, Kumasi Polytechnic and Takoradi Polytechnic, it was the NDC government which built all the polytechnics in the rest of the 10 regions in the country,” the Local Government Minister indicated.
