The NDC in Dome-Kwabenya has challenged the NPP in the constituency to debate it on a single infrastructural achievement in the area.
The constituency has, for 16 years, been the NDC’s waterloo, though the party says its achievements in the area are remarkable and unmatched.
Citing market, health facility, school blocks including the E-block, construction of some stretches of roads and fixing a couple of deplorable ones, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Dome-Kwabenya said it could do more for the area should it have a more hardworking and vibrant MP like Elikplim Akurugu.
Sarah Adwoa Sarfo is the sitting Member of Parliament (MP) for the area after the current Speaker of Parliament, Professor Mike Ocquaye, but the two, who are members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), have failed to lobby for projects for the constituency, the NDC said.
“We started opening up this constituency to the extent that, once upon a time, our sitting MP, had had to tell unpardonable lies that the E-block in the area was as a result of her connection with the World Bank. The NPP has nothing to show and the time has come for us to show them the red card in 2020,”
Elikplim Akurugu, aspiring NDC MP for the constituency explained, at Atomic, where she launched a mini rally to announce her readiness to contest as the parliamentary candidate.
She encouraged the branches of the party to continue working hard to win ‘souls’ for the NDC ahead of the 2020 general elections.
“Should all the 199 branches be able to, aside the core NDC supporters, woo, at least, 50 new members to the NDC, you cannot imagine our register and forward march to victory in 2020 and beyond.
“Let us go out and tell our stories in Dome-Kwabenya and what John Mahama really stands for and resonate his sterling achievements in less than four years as President. Ghana will see massive infrastructural developments and a better management of the country,” the Dome-Kwabenya aspiring NDC PC said.
