Thousands of constituents in Effutu flooded the streets of Winneba on Friday, December 8, to join their Member of Parliament, Alexander Kwamena Afenyo Markin, in an "NPP all White Peace Walk".
Addressing the massive crowd, Hon. Afenyo Markin urged supporters to ignore "lies" being spread by the opposition NDC ahead of the 2024 elections.
"Don't let the NDC liars deceive you, their candidate was once a member of our party and we sacked him because he is a liar. The man’s name is Abebrese, how can Abebrese offer you something? An Abebrese man has nothing to offer but with Alex Markin, he is do the do," he said.
The Deputy Majority Leader challenged the NDC candidate to a public debate on national and local issues.
“I am waiting for them for a debate on national issues and issues about Winneba and its future and I know they are going to run," he stated.
Mr. Afenyo Markin promised constituents that their dreams for development would be realized under his leadership.
“As your leader, I promise you that the Effutu dream would be realized. You will see a transformation in Effutu and I will never turn my back on you. And you will never walk alone," he assured the charged crowd.
The MP responded to allegations of the sacred Aboakyire land sale being sold for miners by government, which he dismissed as politically motivated.
He said the NPP will protect Effutu lands from "lies" being propagated by opponents.
“If there is a party that can protect the properties of Effutu, it is NPP and no other party. And me Kwamena Afenyo Markin, I will make sure to protect everything that belongs to Simpa from now till I leave the seat and will continue doing that even when I am no more your MP,” he assured his constituents.
