Mr Bashiru Nii Narh Alema, a National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary aspirant for Korle Klottey, has expressed his commitment to strengthening the structures of the party in the constituency for victory in the 2020 election.
He said the electorate in the area have lost faith in the incumbent NDC Member of Parliament (MP), Dr Zenator Rawlings and were yearning for a change, hence his decision to contest the primaries.
Mr Alema said this in an interview with the Ghana News Agency after he filed his nomination papers to contest the Korle Klottey primaries.
He said the situation of the NDC in the constituency left much to be desired due to lack of coordination among the youth and weak party structures, which has made the party ineffective on the ground.
The aspirant said there is a strong feeling among the majority of party activists that, “I have the proven excellent skills to turn things around and have persistently asked me to represent them in Parliament to retain the seat for the NDC. They sincerely believe that my choice as MP means peace and development for the area.”
Mr Alema said his proven skills would also promote various initiatives and teamwork so that together they would identify and prioritise the needs of the constituency.
“I would embark on a massive re-organisation from the grassroots when given the nod, which is the only way forward to make significant impact to win the 2020 election,” he said.
Mr Eugene Eshun, the Korle Klottey Constituency Secretary of the NDC, with other leading members of party who received the nomination papers, called on all aspirants to obey the rules and regulations of the party during their campaign to ensure peace.
Mr Samuel J. Mba, the Constituency Director of Elections of the party, who supervised the process urged the aspirants to organise their activities well in order to solicit more votes come 2020 elections.
