Kasoa (C/R), Sept. 3, GNA – Mrs Mavis Hawa Koomson, New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary Candidate for Awutu Senya East has signaled her readiness to win the seat with the launch of her campaign at Kasoa, in the Awutu District of the Central Region.
She said the campaign launch was to boost the morale of her foot soldiers to commit themselves for a vigorous campaign ahead of Election 2012.
Mrs Koomson said she intends to embark on a vigorous campaign, with the sole aim of maximizing votes and ensuring that the party's flagbearer wins the presidential elections and gave a firm promise to embark on a clean campaign, premised on policy-driven messages.
She noted that the constituency over the years had not received any development under the leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and that now is the time to have a change in leadership to hasten development.
Mrs Koomsom urged all members of the party come out in their numbers on December 7 and vote the NPP into power to help raise the living standards of the people.
Mr Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, Member of Parliament for Assin North said Mrs Koomson was the first candidate to launch her campaign without the Flagbearer of the Party, saying, “This crowed I am seeing here shows that she has won the seat.”
He said the youth in the Awutu Senya East Constituency needed jobs and education to better their lives and noted that the NPP and Mrs Koomson were the only combination who could give their outmost best to save the youth in the constituency.
Mr Agyapong said the NDC has nothing good to offer the people of Ghana and that “our taxes were been used to pay judgement debt to financiers of the NDC”.
“In 2010 and 2011, GH¢ 893 million was used to pay judgment debts, which could have catered for about 250, 000 students.”
He urged the electorate to vote for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo as President and Mrs Koomson, as Member of Parliamentary for the constituency.
Mr Bonniface Abubakari Saddiq, former Minister of Water Resources Works and Housing said the NPP was a party of peace and would unite Ghanaians upon assuming office on 7th January 2013.
He said under his stewardship, he started the National Youth Employment Programme, which the NDC were now taking credit for and called on Muslims in the area to vote massively for the NPP for innovative interventions.
Mr Asamoah Boateng, former Minister of Information said Nana Addo was poised to establish a Teacher Training College for the people Awutu Senya and called on the electorate to give him the mandate to become the President to fulfill his promise.
He said prices of food items were rising daily and market women could afford to do business and challenge the NDC to stabilize the prices of food stuff and promote business for a stable economy.
