Listen to article

Accra, Sept. 3, GNA - The Assemblyman for Mataheko, Mr Robert Sarbah has declared his intention to contest the Ablekuma Central Constituency Seat in Election 2004 as an independent parliamentary candidate.

He observed that the electorate in the constituency had lost faith in the incumbent, Mr Okuley Nortey, who had been given the nod to contest the election on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Mr Sarbah told the Ghana News Agency: "The people in the Constituency realising that I can do more for them, have persistently asked me to represent them in Parliament."

When asked what he could do for the people, the Assemblymen said, he would define a clear agenda with the people so that together they would identify and prioritise their needs.

"When one represents the interest of the people his policies and programmes would be pushed by them in their best interest for rapid development," Mr Sarbah noted.

He said, "my overall idea is to improve the constituency by working with the people to think out solutions to perennial problems of the area".

Mr Sarbah said with God on his side there was nothing that could stop him from doing better and urged the people to vote massively for him. 06 Sept 04
