Jirapa Member of Parliament, Cletus Seidu Dapilah, emerged victorious in the recent National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary primaries, securing an overwhelming majority of votes.

Known by his constituents for his hands-on approach and open communication with the people, Hon. Dapilah sees himself as a problem solver and remains focused on improving education, healthcare, student support, agriculture and infrastructure in his constituency.

“I can testify and the people can also testify that I’ve been working so hard with them. I’m a politician that is so open to them and they know I always want to solve their problems. I’m a problem solver and that is what the people admire about me so I wasn’t surprised about the results.” He said this in an interview with JoyNews and monitored by ModernGhana News.

He continued, “Well, I’m looking at education, I’m looking at health, I’m looking at support for students, agriculture and how to lobby for how to get decent road networks. Those are the areas that I’m looking at, with water and sanitation inclusive. I’m going to focus on students’ education, and agriculture. You know the farming season is at hand so I’m looking at how to secure farm inputs - fertilizer and stuff to support some of the farmers so that they can improve their yield.

Ahead of the 2024 general elections, Hon. Dapilah emphasized the importance of unity within the NDC.

He called on party supporters not to comd togetherness and kick out incompetent New Patriotic Party (NPP).

“First and foremost, we need to fight these people (the NPP) on a united front - we have to be united. Primaries are over, both presidential and parliamentary primaries are all over,” he said.

He continued by encouraging supporters to channel their efforts towards making Mahama the president, while he aspire to serve as their Member of Parliament.

He said, “There is no need to be fighting President Mahama. He just wants to be president. The other positions are all for us, so let’s make him the president. He wants just one thing and that is the president. The positions are numerous but we cannot get them if we have not made Mahama the president of Ghana. I also want to be just MP so don’t fight me…let’s work for the party to win”
