15.06.2004 LISTEN

Winneba, June 15, GNA - Member of Parliament for Effutu, Mr Mike Allen Hammah, has declared his intention to seek re-election in this year's elections so as to "entrench the National Democratic Congress (NDC's) grasp on the Constituency.

Mr Hammah broke his long silence over the issue at a special Church Service organised by members of the Winneba Central Pentecost Church last Sunday to pray for unity, stability and peaceful elections this year.

He said his decision to seek re-election stemmed from "the great confidence and trust" reposed in him by the electorate in the Effutu constituency over the past eight years of his tenure as their MP. Mr Hammah asked Ghanaians to allow divine directions to guide them in their daily lives to enable them make meaningful contributions towards the development of the nation.

He charged Pastors and other church leaders to let their daily lives be consistent with their spiritual values worthy of emulation by their followers.

In an interview later, Mr Hammah told the Ghana News Agency that he was poised to winning the NDC Constituency primaries scheduled to take place very soon to enable him to prepare "vigorously" for the main task in December.

He expressed the hope that he would emerge victorious in the primaries because he had undertaken development projects for the area in terms of health, education, water, electricity and roads. "I will do more when given the chance for the third time," said Mr Hammah, who has been the MP for the area since 1996.
