According to Mrs. Tettey, contesting for the position of a Vice Chairperson of the party and serving in that position has given her the understanding of party mobilization and organization which she will bring to bear on the chances of the NPP in the Sagnarigu constituency.
"I am a professional fundraiser and will, therefore, be able to raise the necessary funds and logistics needed to execute a competitive campaign and elections in the constituency", she said.
Mrs. Tettey used the occasion to appeal directly to the delegates of the Sagnarigu constituency to give her their mandate when the time comes.
