Iddrisu, a New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary aspirant for the Tolon
constituency of the Northern Region has received a massive boost from
constituency and polling station executives, ward coordinators and party elders
in his bid to win the internal primary.
As a result, he has challenged the constituentsto deny him a second term, when he fails to live up to his campaign promises as their lawmaker if he wins the 2020 general election.
He stated that he is committed to achieving results through capacity building and initiation of various pro-poor schemes to ameliorate the constituent.
The aspirant who is the Deputy Head of the Ghana Free Zones Authority (GFZA) in charge of Tema and its enclaves was the first to have picked and filed his nomination forms in the Northern Region and promised a wind of change for the people of the area.
“I am determined to do all that I have discussed with you. I challenge you to vote against my second term bid if I fail to deliver on my mandate during the first term”, he disclosed to cheering members and executives of the party.
Earlier, Alhaji Iddrisu paid a courtesy call on the Chief of Tolon Traditional Area Retired Major Sulemana Abubakari to seek his blessings before filing his nomination papers.
The Chief wished him well and the expressed hope that he would become the lawmaker representing the people of the area and champion their interest.
Meanwhile, Alhaji Iddrisu has pledged to establish an educational fund to support needy but brilliant students in the area when given the nod to represent the constituency in Parliament.
Alhaji Habib who has already initiated self-help projects for women groups within the Tolon constituency, added that empowering the youth would be his main priority, and that include creating an educational fund to cater for the needy students in the constituency.
“You will see a lot of children and youth in this constituency hanging around, they cannot go to school, and I have made a point that if I am elected as parliamentary candidate and subsequent Member of Parliament for this constituency, I will launch an educational fun.
This is going
to be an educational fund that will cater for all needs of students in this
constituency”, he assured.
About 378 polling station executives and 18 electoral area coordinators witnessed the submission of his nomination forms at the party’s constituency office on last Friday.
