Popular human rights lawyer Francis Xavier Sosu, who is the Parliamentary Candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Madina Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, has given the assurance that he would bring total development to the area if elected as its Member of Parliament (MP) in the December 7 polls.He says he is capable of reaching out to people regardless of cultural differences or background to ensure development in the area.
The renowned lawyer disclosed this on Yensempa on Onua FM on Tuesday, disclosing that he has already started supporting people just that he requires political potency to do more.
Mr. Xavier Sosu told host Nana Yaw Opare that there are certain decisions that requires political influence hence his determination and inspiration to win the December 7 elections as an MP to empower him take bold decisions in supporting the vulnerable.
He revealed that Madina has a voting population of about 130,000, yet it has infrastructural deficit in the areas of health, education and road.
He stressed, however, that though MPs do not construct roads and build schools and hospitals, he could lobby through his office in ensuring these developments are brought to Madina.
“I am looking at a day as a Member of Parliament, you could rally behind the people to demonstrate against a government for the purposes of social infrastructure and that is possible because you are the voice of the people.”
Mr. Xavier Sosu took a swipe at the current Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for La-Nkwantanan-Madina Jenifer Dede Adjebeng, describing her performance as abysmal and appalling.
He revealed that the Assembly at the time the NDC was leaving office was ranked 2nd in terms of performance but currently ranked at 13th, which proves that the government has failed woefully.
Lawyer Sosu asserted the change Ghanaians voted for has turned out to be a change of tyrannical rule, economic doldrums and hardships, adding that about one million people have lost their jobs under this government.
He thus entreated the general public especially those eligible to vote to oust the NPP government and bring NDC into power to continue its good works.
