Kwasi Adu Gyan, Brong Ahafo Region Chairman of the New Patriotic Party has announced that the polling stations in the region have been increased from 5 to 15 so as to facilitate its room to room campaign during the impending December 7, 2008 general elections.
"The move among other strategies would enable the party to meet one on one all members, tenants and inmates of every household and appeal to their conscience to vote massively for the NPP because of the successes and achievements it has been able to chalk for the past 7years.”
Mr Adu-Gyan made this announcement at the weekend at Wenchi in the Brong Ahafo Region during the acclamation ceremony for George Gyan-Baffour, Member of Parliament for that constituency and Deputy Minister for Finance and Economic Planning.
The Wenchi District Officer of the Electoral Commission, Samuel Kwaah disclosed that at the close of the nominations, it was only Prof Gyan-Baffour who submitted his papers.
Mr Adu Gyan was highly optimistic that the people of Wenchi and even beyond would not disappoint the NPP. He therefore called on the executives of the NPP to promote unity and love within the rank and file of the NPP devoid of bickering and hatred.
Prof Gyan-Baffour expressed his appreciation to the people for retaining his candidature and assured them that he would not disappoint them and definitely win the election “hands down.”
The MP pledged that he would continue to embark on development projects to improve the living conditions of his people.
Some of the projects that he had been able to complete include electrification, construction of school buildings, tarring of roads within the Wenchi Township among others.
Nana Bernard Atta Afena, Municipal Chief Executive of the Wenchi District Assembly stressed that he and his people will work tirelessly until victory is achieved during the general elections.
In a related development, K Amankwaah, the District Electoral Officer of the Dormaa East also declared Yaw Ntow Ababio, the sitting MP for the Constituency unopposed at the close of nominations.
Addressing the gathering amid cheers and jubilation after he had been declared unopposed, Mr Ntow Ababio reiterated that his retention emanated from his hard work and promised that he would continue with the good job to win his seat convincingly.
