The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament (MP) for Odododiodioo, Nii Lante Vanderpuye has launched his campaign for re-election, resolving to garner 70 per cent of the votes in the Constituency.
He said the percentage applies to the presidential and parliamentary polls, since the excellent performance of the NDC Government coupled with his own sterling performance as MP and Minister would ensure a landslide victory for him and the Party.
Bukom, the heart throb of Ga Mashie, went agog with motorbike riding display as music blared from the nooks and cranny of the area about the NDC.
The streets were awash with NDC paraphernalia in the Party colours of red, white green and black.
Among the officials that attended the programme were Mr Koku Anyidoho, Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, Mr Alfred Okoe Vanderpuije, Accra Metropolitan Chief Executive, and Mr Kobena Ade Coker, the NDC’s Greater Accra Regional Chairman.
Also at the launch were chiefs and opinion leaders in the Constituency.
Nii Vanderpuye said President Dramani Mahama has done so much and laid a solid foundation that Ghanaians cannot allow the nation to be messed up.
“Since Odododiodioo decides elections in Ghana, I want to make sure that we give John Mahama the 70 per cent that he deserves to continue the good works, to continue changing lives and transformation in Ghana.
“I just want my opponent to understand that if they want to win elections, not in 2016 because there is no way they can win elections in 2016 because there is no way they can beat Nii Lantey Vanderpuye in Odododiodioo,” he said.
Nii Vanderpuye announced that work would start on the reconstruction of the Salaga Market in the course of the month, and hinted plans to build a new basic school at Agbogbloshie to cater for the children of the market women.
Additionally, the Government is going to site one of the new community senior high schools in the Aayalolo area, as well as the renovation of the slaughter house in the constituency before the elections.
Mr Coker, Mr Anyidoho and Mr Okoe Vanderpuije extolled the works of Nii Vanderpuye and the NDC and appealed to the electorate to vote massively to retain the Government.
A mass choir, singing gospel songs electrified the event whilst the local version of NDC’s Green Book, outlining the achievements of Nii Vanderpuye in Odododiodio was unveiled.
