A Former Headmistress of Wesley Girls High School in Cape Coast, Mrs Nancy Thompson has stated that she is the only candidate who can win the Cape Coast seat for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the upcoming elections.

According to her, the people in the constituency for the past two years had been approaching her to contest the seat in order to bring development to the area.

“The people have been advising me to contest in order to rescue the town from its bad state, hence my decision to contest since the voice of man is the voice of God,” she remarked.

She made this statement in an interview with DAILY GUIDE in Cape Coast.

Mrs Thompson hinted that based on what she had done for students of Wesley Girls High Schools and other schools she had worked with, she was confident that she could perform better when given the nod to lead the area in Parliament.

She mentioned some of her achievements at Wesley Girls as the construction of a two-storey building Information Technology Center (ITC), and rehabilitation of teachers' bungalows, adding that she had also ensured that facilities in the school were increased so more students could be admitted to promote sound education in the country.

The former Headmistress revealed her intention to set up a Member of Parliament's (MP's) office which would be equipped with modern facilities for information gathering to ensure that constituents' problems are addressed on time, when she becomes MP for the area.

Mrs Thompson, whose campaign message is on the theme “Strength through Unity for Development,” noted that she would promote education, tourism and development in the area.

She stated that when God gives a vision, He tries to make provision for the realization of that vision; so God who has appointed her to save Cape Coast will surely show her the way.

“I have a vision for Cape Coast; and I know God will help me to realize that.”

In another development, two out of the six people who had picked nomination forms have submitted their completed forms at the party's constituency office on Tuesday.

There were Dr Bondzie-Simpson, a lecturer at the University of Cape Coast (UCC) and Lawyer Amponsah Dadzie, a legal practitioner.
