A 37-year-old Management Information System (MIS) expert, Seth Nii Attoh has vowed to work hard to recapture the Ledzokuku constituency parliamentary seat of for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) when he is elected parliamentary candidate of the party in upcoming parliamentary primaries.
According to him, the Ledzokuku parliamentary seat is traditionally for the NDC, but due to lack of unity within the party prior to the 2016 elections made the party to lose the seat to Dr Bernard Oko Boye of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Speaking in an interview with Modernghana, via phone in Accra, Nii Attoh, said he has what it takes to lead the NDC in the area to maximise Presidential votes and snatch the parliamentary seat.
The former Staffer of the Ledzokuku Municipal Assembly claimed the grassroots of the party learnt lessons from the disunity that led the Party to lose the seat but have since learnt their lessons.
“I am going into the contest by a collective decision and base on what was coming up from the ground and I am sure of recapturing the seat if NDC delegates endorse me,” he stated.
Nii Attoh said the Youth of both camps of the previous parliamentary candidates are rooting for him basically because they want to go into 2020 elections with a united front to take back the seat.
The MIS Expert expressed optimistic to emerge the NDC Parliamentary Candidate (PC) at the party primaries to represent the people of Ledzorkuku in parliament.
He accused the current government under the leadership of President Akufo Addo of stalling development of the constituent, alleging that, projects that commenced under the previous NDC have all been abandoned.
The parliamentary candidate aspirant cited the Teshie link road to Manet on Spintex, drains at various areas like Teshie Laskala, gravelling of Martey Tsuru road and gravelling of Tsootsoko and many others are stalled.
Nii Attoh also lasted the Akufo Addo government of capping the Common Funds for Assemblies which MPs use for development and said those bad policies would be reversed when NDC comeback to power in 2021.
He further claimed Ghanaians have realised the deceptive policies of the NPP and prepared their mind to kick them out, but cautioned that NDC needs to work extra hard to diffuse the NPP propaganda.
He reiterated his zealot develop Ledzokuku when elected as a parliamentary candidate and subsequently endorse him at national general elections in 2020.
Nii Attoh said, his policies would focus on youth employment, woman empowerment, sanitation and water, Heath and education.
He said, even though Ledzokuku is in the capital city of Accra, many of the residents of the Ledzokuku area still lack behind because of government neglect.
