The Parliamentary candidate hopeful on the ticket of the ruling New Patriotic Party in the Tain Constituency, Hon Afful Manu Benjamin has stressed the need for the Party (NPP) to concentrate on providing more developmental projects in their strongholds to enhance the party's chances of breaking the "8" in the 2024 general elections.
Reacting to the outcome of the just-ended by-election at Assin North in an exclusive telephone interview with this Correspondent, Hon. Afful Many Benjamin stated that the defeat in the by-election should be seen as a wake-up call for the party to provide timely development projects for constituents.
Hon Afful stated, "The ongoing development in the Assin North is bonafide that the NPP government is determined to develop the area, and for that reason, the constituents had no justification not to vote for the NPP candidate."
He pointed out that what the Assin North people did was a clear message that they did not need any development, but their favorite, James Gyakye Quayson.
Hon Afful urged the NPP government to rather concentrate more on providing developmental projects in the party's strongholds to enable them break the "8".
During the telephone encounter, Hon. Afful also took the opportunity to appeal to the delegates in the Tain Constituency to vote massively for him in the upcoming NPP parliamentary primaries in the constituency.
"This is because l am ready to solve the challenges that have been confronting the people through my developmental agenda policies," Hon Afful Manu Benjamin concluded.
