NDC victory requires hard work from members - Tei Larbi

Kumasi, Jan 12, GNA - Mr Ebenezer Tei-Larbi, the National

Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for Oforikrom

has reminded members of the party that the victory of the NDC did

not mean they should relax and that consolidating the party's gains


required hard work. He said governance of the country should not rest on the

shoulders of the leaders alone but must be carried out with the

co-operation, support and contribution of all to enable government

policies and programmes to be implemented successfully. Mr Tei-Larbi, who lost the election, was speaking to the Ghana


News Agency in Kumasi at the weekend. He urged supporters to be mindful of the way they celebrated the

victory and urged them to unite, live in peace and be tolerant of other

parties' views in the interest of the nation. Mr Tei-Larbi denied speculations in the Oforikrom Constituency

that he had brought his political career to an end because of his


defeat in the elections.

He said he had the capacity and expertise to address the basic

socio-economic problems such as the high rate of youth

unemployment, poor sanitary conditions in some communities and

low standard of education in the constituency. He said he would therefore contest in future elections and

appealed to his supporters to rally behind him to realize his dreams. Mr Tei-Larbi said the coming months would see the NDC

strengthening its internal structures to make it more viable in winning

the constituency seat in the next elections.
