NDC has resolved problems where we lost our seats – Kevor tells NPP
The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Eastern Regional Secretary Mark Oliver Kevor has served notice that almost all their seats in the region are secured and that there’ll not be any ‘skirt and blouse’ voting come 2020 general elections.
According to him, there were some minor issues prior to the 2016 election making it possible for the NPP to acquire two NDC seats although the party gained the highest votes in the presidential slots.
Both Upper Manya Krobo and Akwatia constituency seats were won by the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), a situation leading to a gargantuan victory over the NDC.
Kevor said, the party is aware of some challenges they encountered and for that matter, all issues have been resolved.
Some regional executives of the New Patriotic Party are hopeful to win most of the strongholds of the NDC including Afram Plains South.
The new Regional Secretary Mr. Jeff Konadu is optimistic that due to the Akufu Addo led government’s initiative for the people of Afram Plains, the possibility to win the seat is high.
According to him, there are plans to construct Adawso Bridge making transportation of goods and services easy, also providing irrigation for farmers to make water available for plants use when the rainfall is not sufficient.
All these plans including the provision of stable power supply will make the place more attractive adding that this will enhance their standard of living positively because investors would be willing to do business in the area.
However, in an interview with Agoo/Kasapa news, Mark Kevor told Ebenezer Kojo Nyavor (K-Lover) that the NDC under Jerry John Rawlings provided electrical power to the people in the area when Dankwah Bussia Dambo tradition had rejected the people of Afram Plains.
There are some road networks he said the former president John Dramani Mahama would have completed had it not been the change of power.
