Mr Joshua Akamba, National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), is calling on the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to desist from luring voters in Ayawaso West Wuogon with rushed development projects for electoral gains.
He scolded the NPP for coming in with eleventh hour development projects like fixing of street light, road projects and others when the Government is still delaying to inaugurate a facility like the Legon Hospital, which he said had long been overdue.
Mr Akamba made the call at mini rally of the NDC at Abelemkpe, in Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency on Wednesday, followed by a house-to house and door-to door campaign, by a group of NDC supporters from North Dayi and Kpando Constituencies in the Volta Region to project and market Mr Delali Kwasi Brempong, the NDC candidate for an upcoming bye election slated for January 31, 2019.
The bye-election has become necessary following the death Mr Emmanuel Agyarko Kyeremanteng, the immediate past MP for the Ayawaso West Constituency on November 21, 2018.
Mr Akamba urged the voters to query the Government on the sources of funding for the rushed development projects prior to the bye elections, since they were not contained in the 2019 Budget.
“If those project were not done in the six years that Honourable Agyarko Kyermangteng was MP , how can they be done in just two weeks prior to bye-election?”
Mr Akamba urged the voters to vote for the NDC, and its candidate Mr Delali Kwasi Brempong, to revive stalled or abandoned development projects in the constituency.
Ms Joycelyn Tetteh, MP for North Dayi, whose constituency Mr Brempong hails from, said the NPP had been incompetent in power since it came to power in 2017.
According to Ms Tetteh, a better choice was the NDC, and voters should not make a mistake to give their mandate to the NPP to continue repeating mistakes to the regress of the constituency.
Mr Mathias Alagbo, the Volta Regional Youth Organiser of the NDC, urged the campaigners to explain to the voters that the NDC and its candidate should be given the nod, adding that, the NDC would continue to offer better alternatives.
“We want to be part of the success of Mr Brempong, as a prelude to the victory of the NDC in 2020 general elections.
