NDC Picks PC For Ayawaso West By-election

Ayawaso West Wuogon branch of the National Democratic Congress, NDC has retained their 2016 Parliamentary Candidate (PC) for the up coming by-election.

Out of 720 vote cast, Mr. Brempon Kwasi Delali who was endorsed by the 137 branches, beat his two contestants with about 415 votes.

Mr. Ekwow Acquah pulled 190 votes and Ms. Selassie Dede Agbo, a branch chairperson who earlier scared the two males had 115 votes. She was loved for her bravado amongst other well-to-do females in the area but lack the courage.

With the aggressiveness of the Ayawaso West Wuogon NDC, Mr. Brempon Delali hinted he has learnt his mistakes in the 2016 elections. He promised to ensure those mistakes are not repeated.

He promised working with everybody, as he appeals especially to the NDC faithfuls who throng the voting grounds last Friday from other constituencies to come and offer support to the party in the area.

According to the Constituency Chairman, Bismark Aborbi-Ayitey they have the shortcomings of the ‘failed’ ruling NPP so the by-election would be issues based.

He pointed out that following the promises the NPP made before the Ghanaians gave them the nod show they have not performed.

He told Therepublicnewsonline.com that the Ayawaso West Wuogon seat on their heart and the opportunity has presented itself for them to pick it this time around.

He apleaded with all NDC in the area for cooporation for the PC to snatch the seat this around; “everybody must go from house to house, church to church, spots to spot, ghetto to ghetto for us to win the seat peacefully”, pleaded chairman Bismark.

The two contestants, Ms. Selassie Dede Agbo and Ekwow Acquah who could not make it pledged their support for the chosen Mr. Brempon Kwasi Delali to recover the seat for the party.

Evicting Judges for Cathedral undermines Judicial Independent’s-Agalga Hon James Agalga, Member of Parliament (MP) for Builsa North has condemned the decision of the government to evict some Judges from the residence at the Ridge residential enclave to pave way for construction of a national cathedral. According to him, though as a Christian he is not against building of a national Chapel, he believed the decision to evict some Judges to pave way for the Cathedral was not only a misplaced priority, but a threat to the independency of the Judiciary as it could mean that, the Executive arm of government could manipulate the judiciary including their sleeping places. Speaking some Journalists in an interview in Accra over the week, Mr Agalga who is a Former Deputy Minister for the Interior lauded the initiative to construct a National Cathedral project but disagreed with the approach of government to realising the good project. In his considered opinion, the government should find a more spacious land space to site the cathedral rather than settling on the Ridge space which is currently the home of some superior court judges and other state institutions. He added that, the matter remained sensitive because, the condition of services of Judges are been undermine and posed serious threat to their independency, stressing that, Ghana is not a Theocratic state but a secular country where there is freedom of worship and association. Mr Agalga questioned whether the government would be able or willing to do same for other Faiths like the Muslims and the traditional believers. He stated that, the controversy could have been avoided if government had given other prime areas in the country for the National Cathedral rather than it current location. The National Cathedral of Ghana is a planned interdenominational Christian cathedral scheduled to be built in Accra, the nation’s capital, as part of Ghana’s 60th-anniversary celebrations. The design of the Cathedral was unveiled by the President Nana Akufo-Addo in March 2018. The Cathedral would have an auditorium capable of seating 5,000 as well as the requisite chapels and a baptistery. The site will also house a music school, an art gallery and a museum dedicated to the Bible. The design of the Cathedral reflects the art and culture of Ghanaian ethnic groups; the high ceilings and a staggered roof is reminiscent of Akanian architecture and the facade would be concaved, decorated with timber in imitation of Ashanti royal stools. The architect for the project is David Adjaye, a British-Ghanaian.
