By gna

Mr. Jonathan Tackie-Komme, MP for Odododiodioo, has pledged his commitment to sacrifice more than ever before to ensure the development of the area and the well-being of the people if he is retained in the December 7 elections.

He was addressing a rally to launch the campaign of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the elections at the Bukom Square in Accra on Saturday.

The MP said he had been tried and tested as a youth organizer and an organizer of the party and as an Assemblyman and now a Parliamentarian.

Mr. Tackie-Komme said with his wealth of experience he would work harder to ensure the socio-economic advancement of the area if he was retained as the MP for the area.

He called for unity and commitment within the rank and file of the party in the constituency to retain the seat.

The MP expressed gratitude to the former aspirants, Mr Walid Laryea and Mr Benjamin Okai popularly known as Teacher Nii-Nii for their co-operation after the constituency primary.

Mr Walid Laryea called on members of the NDC to support the MP and to campaign with zeal to ensure that Ni Tackie-Komme retained the seat and for Professor John Evans Atta-Mills, Presidential Candidate of the party to form the next government.

Mr Benjamin Okai called on the followers of the former aspirants to "bury the hatchet" and join hands for "a resounding victory" in both the Parliamentary and Presidential elections.

Mr Daniel Okai, Constituency Chairman, also thanked those who contributed towards the mediation efforts between the former aspirants and appealed to the members and supporters to unite and rally behind the Parliamentary Candidate to ensure victory for the NDC.

Mr.E.T Mensah, a leading NDC member called on the people to compare the track record of the NDC as a social democratic party with that of the NPP, which was a property owning one and vote for the one that had the welfare of the people at heart.

He urged the people to vote for the NDC in the general election to ensure a change that was attractive and not to go forward with economic hardship and deprivation.

Before the launch of the campaign, Nii Tackie-Komme flanked by Mr Walid Laryea, Mr Benjamin Okai and Mr Daniel Okai in an open car followed by a float and thousands of supporters had gone on a procession through some of the principal streets of the area accompanied with brass band music led by motor out-riders before converging at Bukom Square for the rally.

Other speakers included Mr Jerry Akwei Thompson, Regional Organiser, Nii Lante Vanderpuige Operations Director of the Mills Campaign Centre and some officials from Constituency, Regional, National offices of the NDC as well as officials from the Campaign Centre of the Presidential Candidate.
