‘Some of our utterances are not enhancing democracy’

Kingsley Aboagye Gyedu, the Western North Regional Minister, has cautioned that the utterances of some politicians are not enhancing the democratic dispensation of the country.

“Politics of insults, rumour-mongering and character assassination unfortunately have become part of our political discourse which is not good for the growth and development of our democracy, I hope the 2020 electioneering campaign will not see any ugly occurrences like violence, insult and character assassination for the elections to be conducted peacefully,” he stressed.

Mr Gyedu, who doubles as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Bibiani-Anhwiaso- Bekwai was congratulating the National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate-elect for the Bibiani-Anhwiaso Bekwai constituency.

”I congratulate Stephen Donkor, who massively won the parliamentary primary  over Stephen Bennie at the just ended NDC parliamentary primary in the constituency, I know my brother Mr Donkor has done his assessment already, which he will capitalise on, to campaign professionally to win votes from the constituents, but trust Aboagye Gyedu, my hard work in the constituency will maintain and President Nana Akufo-Addo and I in the 2020 polls.

“Due to the achievement and developmental projects the government of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has undertaken, coupled with my personal contributions in the areas of education, health, water and sanitation and jobs to the Bibiani-Anhwiaso- Bekwai Constituency as MP, the NPP is likely to pick the seat again.

“The constituency needs someone who is ready to serve, and I have been helping people to further their education, provide developmental projects, also I am approachable, humble, committed, dedicated and determined to support and assist the constituents, I am not even afraid of any contender because the constituents know my good works,” Mr Gyedu touted.

The Regional Minister is in his second term as an MP and is seeking re-election for the third term in the 2020 parliamentary election. -myjoyonline.com
