Ablekuma West will make a difference for NPP – Ursula

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate for Ablekuma West Ursula Owusu Ekuful has assured the party’s presidential candidate Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, her constituency will play a crucial role in bringing him to power.

Nana Akufo-Addo is contesting incumbent President John Dramani Mahama and others in the 2016 presidential elections.

Thanking Nana Akufo-Addo for his warm reception during a courtesy call on him Thursday, Owusu Ekuful reassured the NPP flagbearer that “we are determined to make Ablekuma West an example for other constituencies to follow suit. We are going to work hard, and, by His Grace, with an enhanced margin. This year, we in in the NPP are not interested in just parliamentary seats. We are interested in a President from the NPP for Ghana. We will do whatever it takes.”

She also disclosed that she had taken the initiative towards reconciling members of the party in her constituency who were disgruntled before, during and after parliamentary primaries.

“I am confident that God will bless this initiative and calm every heart that is in pain. We will enter every household and talk to those who had said they were not going to vote, so they change their minds. We will make sure we bring every member on board so they vote for the NPP”, she said.

On the 36,975 votes the NPP chalked in 2012 election in the constituency, she pledged a significant increase over the 2012 figure in 2016. This, she explained, will be Ablekuma West’s contribution towards ensuring that Nana Akufo-Addo obtains the 50% 1 vote needed for victory.

“We have to win the next election. We are all mindful of that and we will do whatever it takes to ensure that victory is ours. If they are counting the constituencies that contributed to the NPP victory, Ablekuma West will be one of the foremost. We thank you for your support and encouragement over the years,” she added.
