> Politics Offers Chance To Serve Nation — Dr Bow
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate for the Kpandai Constituency in the Northern region has cautioned politicians in the Northern Region not to see elections as a do-or-die affair but a chance to serve the nation.
Dr Kofi Albert Bow said, elections provided a unique opportunity for people to debate ideas in order to secure political power for the advancement of society.
“It is either you are given the opportunity to serve or it is given to another member of the community; Whichever way, it is the public's interest and choices that must be secured and not that of the candidates,” he remarked.
The NPP parliamentary candidate made these remarks when he, together with some party members, toured parts of the Kpandai Constituency to sell his message to the people.
Whilst stressing the need for candidates to accept election results for the sake of peace, Mr Bow also advocated better electoral practices since the absence of that was a recipe for violence.
He entreated voters in the constituency to do a comparative analysis of the candidates contesting the seat to determiner which one was better placed to represent the constituency.
He said the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for the area, Mr Kojo Likpaalmor Tawiah, had not done much to deserve another term.
The NPP parliamentary candidate did not fall short of defending the governance record of the NPP, which he described as successful and deserved to be recognised and rewarded.
“We can only reward the NPP if we retain it in power,” he urged.
Mr Bow said that the NPP government had good plans for the north, citing the proposed establishment of the Northern Development Fund, which he said would address the economic needs of the people of the north.
Among those who accompanied him on his tour was the District Chief Executive for Kpandai, Mr James Kpana.
He called on the members of the party in the district to work hard to ensure that the NPP was retained. The DCE urged the youth in the constituency to eschew violence by using their energies in the right direction.
