Date published: October 16, 2012
Kennedy Osei, the sole aspiring candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for Akyem Swedru in the Eastern Region, on Wednesday, assured his constituents that he would help bring development to the area.
According to him, having being championing development, although he is not yet a legislator, he had what it takes to deliver.
The aspiring candidate, a graduate from the Institute of Professional Studies (IPS), told a section of the media in an interview, that education was pivotal on his agenda, adding, “I have seen what education can do, and I will do my best to provide the necessary facilities for my constituents. My educational priority is in line with our party’s vision and that of the presidential candidate, Akufo-Addo.”
The enterprising youth said he will not wait for the government to come out with the policies before he will move into action.
“Once I am voted as MP, I will lead the crusade to make sure people get quality education. I will not wait for the government to come before I do what I want to do. I will help the needy but brilliant students with the necessary logistical support.”
According to the marketing student, supporting the needy was not a problem for him because he has been doing it already, before he was pressured upon to represent them at the august law making house.
The marketing student, who works with one of the waste management companies in the country, believes strongly that it is time for the youth to take up the leadership mantle to transform Ghana into a matured economy.
Citing David Cameroon of Britain and Barack Obama of USA, he said “The time has come for the youth to take up leadership positions. I am ready to occupy that position and fulfil the dreams of our teeming youth.”
Responding to why he is the obvious choice for the delegates in the constituency, he said: “They are looking for me in terms of my track record. As a unifiers and a peace maker, they have reposed confidence in me and I will deliver as expected,” he said.
The industrious aspirant is promising to help build sheds for women in the palm kernel industry and also provide microfinance for the women to continue with their trade. He believes strongly in youth empowerment and providing skills training to his constituents.
The NPP contestant, who recounted his role within the party, asserted that no contestant from the other political parties is a threat to him. He said his main focus was to win soundly with a huge margin and to increase the votes of Nana Akufo-Addo.
“I am going to help increase our votes in the December elections. I will not be an arm-chair MP. I will respond to the needs of the people,” he said.
