Mr Victor Quashie Adonu, a former Greater Accra regional secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress , NDC has expressed interest to contest the parliamentary seat of Ayawaso Central constituency on the party ticket.
Ayawaso Central remains the NDC orphan constituency for about 22 years, after Alhaji Saaed Sinary stepped down in 1996, and it is a bother for the people who kept seeing nothing good comes to the area since the NPP took over.
In an interview with Therepublicnewsonline.com after a Health Walk in the area organised some branch of the constituency, Mr. Quashie Adonu indicated that the constituency needs someone who is prepared to unite the followers and the sympathizers of the NDC going into 2020 elections.
He explained that the two major groups who live in the Ayawaso Central – Ewes and Moslims are divided anytime the party prepares for national elections, and this the NPP always capitalise on for about 22 years.
Mr. Quashie Adonu thinks must end; and said he is coming to ensure whatever is creating that division would be uprooted to give way for the NDC to recover the seat for the party in come 2020.
The former hard working GA Regional multilingual Secretary disputed he was the problem which sought to give the NPP the chance to keep winning the seat.
Mr. Quashie Adonu explained that he was constituency’s elections director, worked with all the NDC PCs diligently; but the division created by attitudes of some people which rob the NDC of the Parliamentary seat.
“As director of election in my area, we reduced the votes of the NPP drastically; I was submetro chairman 6 years where I lobbied amongst other things to bring one of the Millennium schools to end shift system in constituency”, he stated.
“I tell you with unity which I am going to champion in this constituency when given the chance as Parliamentary Candidate (PC), and with all the former PCs on board, I bet you the NDC will snatch the seat back”, optmistic Quashie Adonu assured.
Emmanuel Sosu and Rauf Musah are also the two other persons who expressed their interest to contest for the vacant position of the Ayawaso Central NDC Parliamentary Candidature.
