I will win Ashaiman seat by a landslide – Ernest Norgbey

The NDC parliamentary candidate for Ashaiman, Ernest Norgbey, has predicted a landslide victory for his party in the impending general elections.

Addressing journalists in the constituency over the weekend, Mr Norgbey insisted the NDC would beat the NPP convincingly on November 7, to retain power.

Consequently, he advised his political opponent and his assigns to concentrate on their campaign as the November 7 elections will not be won by mouth bathing others.

According to Mr Norgbey, since the NDC primary in November last year there has been several attempts by his political opponents to run him down and shift his focus from the core issues that the people of Ashaiman are confronted with by making unwarranted and unfounded allegations.

Mr Norgbey said this in an interview with some journalists in the constituency.

He said he as a person is not perturbed by some infantile comments being made by his political opponents, but rather he is focused on his set target.

"I am not moved by the infantile comments made by my political opponents and detractors, but I am more concerned about that numerous issues that confront my constituents".

He said what Ashaiman need is not rhetoric from any politician but proper action.

"My Party the NDC and my President, His Excellency John Mahama are walking the talk by solving the numerous challenges confronting my people and I as a newly elected candidate is also playing my complimentary role to ensure myself and my party wins convincingly in the forthcoming General elections".

Mr Norgbey used the opportunity to advice assigns and aides of the NPP Parliamentary candidate to rather channel their strength in dealing with their party problems rather than seeking cheap political attention by attacking his personality and credibility.

"It is laughable how people would want to ride on the shoulders of others to gain attention. I have read how attempts have been made by an aide of the NPP Parliamentary candidate, one Mutala Mohammed to attack my credibility and personality in a bid to attract attention for his failing and unpopular candidate. I will want to advice the said gentlemen to rather channel his strength to engaging the people of Ashaiman in a door to door campaign since it could at least earn them a single vote probably"

He added that no matter the amount of scheming and machinations being plot against him, he is sure of emerging victorious come November 7.

"I want to assure my people that operation 85000 votes for the NDC is on course and nothing will divert the focus. I will not allow political opponent who has no message for the people to use me as a springboard to gain attention and popularity".

Mr Norgbey stated emphatically that the NPP candidate in Ashaiman, has nothing to offer the people of Ashaiman and so are his aides and assigns hence the tactics of personality attacks.

"The Ashaiman NPP from all indications have no message and I want to send a strong signal to them to either zip their mouth or throw in the towel ahead of the November 7 General elections. I will not give Mutala Mohammed and his candidate the luxery to ride on me for fame and recognition".

He called on the people of Ashaiman to reject the NPP by giving the NDC a resounding victory come November 7th.
