An independent parliamentary nominee for the Ellembelle Constituency in the Western Region, Bonzo Ewereko, has pledged to bring massive development to the area if given the mandate in the December 7 general election.
“I’m eager to build a new Ellembelle and give the people a new lease of life,” he said.
Mr. Ewereko made the assertion after filing his nomination papers last Thursday.
According to the 38-year-old entrepreneur, “Ellembelle needs to go into a different direction now – a direction of hope, equal opportunities, development and a direction befitting the home constituency of Ghana’s first President, Dr Kwame Nkrumah.
“Ellembelle needs that change and it is now,” he added.
The astute businessman said it was time younger people go into politics “because they understand the dynamics of modern times”.
Married with a son, Mr. Ewereko holds a bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies from the African University College of Communication (AUCC) and has pursued a number of academic courses in other fields of endeavour.
He hoped to launch his campaign soon in Ellembelle to kick-start a vigorous crusade to wrestle the seat.
The incumbent MP for the constituency is Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah, who was elected on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) with a difference of 1,649 votes.
He took over from Freddie Blay, who had represented the constituency on the ticket of the Convention People’s Party (CPP).
