Eliot Edem Agbenorwu and Bernard Blay, have indicated their intentions to contest the Ketu South in the Volta and Bia West in the Western North Regions respectively.
Mr Agbenorwu, is the Municipal Chief Executive for Ketu South and Mr Blay is a youth activist and both claim are poised to snatch the seats currently held by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2020 parliamentary election.
Both aspirants pledged to change the voting trend in their respective constituencies and signals were clear are changing and there was the need for members of the party to get on board to wrestle the seat from the NDC.
They noted that the government had done a lot for both constituencies with development projects including social interventions which were transforming livelihoods.
According to Mr Agbenorwu, “we have opened up Ketu South for rapid growth, gradually becoming the tourism and investment destination, we know the constituents will reward our efforts, decision by the incumbent Member of Parliament, Fiifi Kwetey not to contest the seat in 2020 places me at pole position to snatch the seat for the party.
“I have become the face of the constituency through government’s pro-poor programmes, the constituents are ready to give NPP the mandate, engaging first time voters and other stakeholders in increasing votes for the party’s presidential candidate.
Mr Blay stressed: “I am poised at bringing the development the NDC has denied residents of Bia West over the years, if we lack right leadership, we will leave as people in need even when we owe abundant resources, I expect delegates of the party to massively endorse me in the upcoming parliamentary primary to unseat the NDC in the 2020 parliamentary election.
“I’ll use lobbying skills to get the constituency its fair share of the national cake in terms of infrastructure, jobs, other social interventions, promise to deliver an accountable, transparent and open form of leadership to ensure constituents benefit,” Mr Blay assured. –GNA/rainbowradioonline.com
