Policy Analyst to contest NDC primaries in Keta
Governance and Policy Analyst, Kofi Kukubor has announced plans to challenge the incumbent Member of Parliament for Keta Mr Richard Quashiga at the up-coming National Democratic Congress (NDC) primaries.
The NDC has opened nominations for interested members to file to contest both the presidential and parliamentary primaries in November.
In a message announcing his intentions, Mr Kukubor said the decision was a call to serve the people and to bring development and progress to the impoverished communities within the Keta Constituency.
He said it was time to build and change peoples’ lives, adding that, “it is time for progress.”
Mr Kukubor said he had decided to take up the mantle as the political leadership in the constituency had failed to transform the lives of the people over the years.
This year’s primaries are of particular interest being the first time the NDC’s new policy of universal membership suffrage (UMS) will be used in electing aspiring Parliamentary candidates across the nation.
Mr Kukubor is also a Consultant in International Trade, Private Business Advocate, Capacity Builder and Trainer with over 20 years experience.
He has a wide working experience in the public and private sector and academia.
He is an innovator who believes that existing and acceptable standards, performances and practices can always be improved or enhanced with abstract thinking, innovation, and creativity.
He welcomes change whiles exploring new concepts as necessary ingredients for growth and development.
Until recently, he was a lecturer in Business Policy Formulation and a Coordinator for Corporate and Business Development Studies of the Faculty of Business Administration, Pentecost University College.
Kofi left academia to set up his own business where he currently consults for corporate and small businesses.
He is a politician who believes in moulding young minds to be better than their preceding generation.
The Regional TEIN concept is his initiative, which has unearthed the talents in our tertiary institutions, some of who have assumed leadership positions in both the NDC and government.
He has many years of experience in elections issues and is, currently, a member of the NDC Election Committee at the national level.
