DELEGATES OF the People's National Convention (PNC) in the Bongo Constituency have unanimously confirmed Nsoh Kofi Jacob, a graduate of the University College of Education, Winneba as the party's parliamentary candidate for the December general elections. 

The 44-year-old teacher was confirmed by 65 Polling Station Chairmen to contest the seat on the ticket of the PNC.

Two persons, who had picked nomination forms, stepped down at the last minute, thereby creating room for Mr. Nsoh to go through the process unopposed.

The two, John Seidu Issahaku, who contested the seat in 1992 and 1996, and Felix Abugre, who also contested in 2004, have all pledged their support for Mr. Nsoh, to wrestle the seat from the NDC.

The Regional Chairman of PNC, Mohammed Baba, commended the delegates for the high turnout and the mature manner they conducted themselves during the primary.

He reiterated that political opponents should not necessarily be enemies, therefore advised Mr. Nsoh to refrain from campaign messages that have component of insults and words that could create enemies for him.

The Upper East Regional Secretary, Henry Fachu, who also witnessed the primary, urged Ghanaians to elect a PNC government into power to execute the unfinished agenda of Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and Dr. Hilla Liman's administrations.

He bashed the NPP government for sticking religiously to directives from developed countries, which he said “in actual sense would not solve our problems as a nation, but will only empower a few minority in influential positions, while a larger portion of the country's population will continue to suffer”.

According to him, a PNC government will revisit the removal of subsidies on farm inputs and ensure that the best was always done to the Ghanaian farmer.
