A sampling conducted by Today among a cross-section of eligible voters in the Greater Accra Region points to the possibility of eleven (11) constituencies slipping through the hands of the aspirants of the ruling NDC party.

The constituencies are Ningo-Pramapram represented  by Hon. Enoch Teye Mensah, Lawyer Kwame Alfred Agbesi, Ashaiman; Nii Armah Ashietey, Klottey Korle; Hon. Fritz Baffour, Ablekuma South; Hon. Jonathan Nii Tackie Commey, Odododiodio currently Nii Lantey Vandepuye, Ayawaso East, Hon. Maj. (Dr.) Alhaji Mustapha Ahmed (Rtd); Ledzokuku, Hon. Nii Nortey Duah; currently, Miss Ghana-Benita Sena Golomeke, Kpone-Katamanso; Hon. Joseph Nii Laryea Afotey-Agbo, Adenta; Hon. Kojo Adu Asare , currently Nii Ashi Moore, Ada; Hon. Alex Narh Tettey-Enyo currently Ms. Comfort Doyoe  Cudjoe  Ghansah, and Sege; Hon. Alfred W. Gbodzor Abayateye, currently Christian Odotei.

The constituents described their MPs as non-performing leaders and vowed to vote ?skirt and blouse;? voting for President John Dramani Mahama during the December 7 elections and voting against the NDC MPs.

The irate voters accused the above-mentioned MPs of not doing enough to improve social conditions and having performed poorly in undertaking infrastructure development in their various communities; which includes abandoning major road projects in the above constituencies.

?We will not vote for them because they have failed to represent us well in Parliament,? they bellowed.

?They would not be our MPs again?they did not respect the people who worked to get them elected into power and that is the reason why some of us would not vote for them,? one concerned citizen of  Ablekuma South angrily told Today.

According to the residents, ?We don?t necessarily need their monies?but their bad human relation is what would cost their seats.?

They indicated that some of the aforementioned MPs had brought a lot of divisions and acrimony in the rank-and-file of the party in the constituencies weakening the party in the areas.

?They were not around when we worked to build the party in these areas. They do not know what some of us sacrificed to make what the NDC is today and now they are working hard to disintegrate it? they have to go,? they fumed.

They however stated that the people in the constituencies were firmly behind the President and would work to ensure that he wins massively in the constituencies.

?President Mahama is our own man. He is doing well as President and we would support him fully and that is where the ?skirt and blouse? voting would come in,? they said.
They said there were few issues the NDC had to work on in the constituencies if the party was to secure the seats.

?There are few issues which are not for the consumption of the press but we are working at it to ensure that those MPs lose their seats.?

The Ningo-Prampram MP?s name was mentioned for particularly sowing sour grapes in his constituency.

Some branch executives are pointed accusing fingers at him for feuding land disputes and undermining the party faithful in the constituency.
According to the irate executives, Mr. Mensah is not in good terms with most party executives, and chiefs and traditional leaders in the constituency.

That situation, they say, has divided the entire party membership and brought the party?s activities to almost a standstill.

It would be recalled that an affected chief Nene Kanor Atiapah III, Manklalo of Great Ningo, lamented that ?We the chiefs and people of Ningo-Prampram have summoned Hon. Mensah to the leadership of NDC on the grounds that he has made several disparaging remarks against us.?

He recounted a case where they recently approached him for aid in the construction of the road from the Great Ningo SHS junction to adjoining towns and villages, but Hon. Mensah persistently failed to heed call, because he was busy helping with the construction of minor roads within the Prampram township.

Nene Atiapah lamented that Great Ningo is lagging behind in development stressing that promises for education facilities, electricity, potable water and roads have not been honoured.

Against this backdrop, he revealed, he has instructed his sub-chiefs and their subjects not to vote for the ruling NDC government come Election 2012.
