The National Democratic Congress (NDC) aspiring parliamentary hopeful for Nhyiaeso, Dr Samuel Sarpong has rallied members of the constituency to join him as they vote for development in the upcoming polls in December 7th.
Addressing a rally to officially launch his campaign to reclaim the parliamentary seat at the Pataase Methodist Park, Dr Sarpong promised to lead the constituency to a prosperous future.
According to him, the lobbying skills under his sleeves during his days as the Mayor of Kumasi and Regional Minister recently would stand him in good stead to get more development projects to Nhyiaeso which is considered as an elite constituency.
‘’I have weighed myself and I know am fit to lead you to partner with the President, John Mahama to securing the much needed development into Nhyiaeso’’, Dr Sarpong confidently posited.
Having voted for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for about 16 years now, Dr Sarpong called on the residents to change their way of voting to ensure proper development comes to the constituency.
According to him, the time had come for people to examine the competencies of aspirants before they voted for any.
The time anybody from the NPP was accepted as fit to represent the constituency was past and gone since the Nhyiaeso community needed a competent person to lead it in parliament.
Dr Sarpong promised to work with all persons in the constituency when voted for, adding he will adopt the same style as he displayed when he was the Chief Executive for Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) where many referred to him ‘as father for all’.
Speaking at the launch earlier, the Minister for Sports, Hon Edwin Nii Lantey Vanderpuiye said the Nhyaieso constituency has the best of candidates in Dr Samuel Sarpong.
He posited the State Housing Manager was a true humanitarian whose preoccupation is to ensure development is seen everywhere he goes.
Having worked with Dr Sarpong from 1992, the Sports Minister revealed the former Kumasi Mayor had served the NDC party with humility and assured residents of same service if they endorsed Dr Sarpong on December 7th.
On his part, Joshua Hamidu Akamba, Deputy National Organizer of NDC replayed the tremendous qualities in the SHC manager, insisting the constituency would witness a great wave of change if he is voted for in the upcoming parliamentary poll in December.
Other notable speakers at the impressive ceremony were the Ashanti Regional Minister, John Alexander Ackon, Andy Okrah, Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister, Mr Samuel Yaw Adusei, Deputy Minister for Works, Housing and Water, Mr Ernest Afayam, Nhyiaeso Constituency Chairman and many others.
