The Deputy Transport Minister, Dzifa Aku Attivor, has
declared that the NDC in the Volta region is working very hard to ensure
that it wins all the parliamentary seats
in the region in the 2012 general elections , including the yet to be created
“The social democratic orientation of the NDC makes it the
most attractive grouping to the masses throughout the country, especially the
rural dwellers” she says.
According to her, the numerous social interventions such
as the distribution of free uniforms, free exercise books and expanded school
feeding put in place by the government has contributed tremendously in improving
the lot of many Ghanaians.
The Deputy Minister made the remarks at the Nkwanta
North constituency primaries to elect the NDC candidate for the only orphan
constituency in the region. She assured the people of the area of the
commitment of the government of Prof. John Evans Atta Mills to ensure that the
region receives its fair share of the national cake.
“I want to say without any shred of doubt that the
Volta region will continue to receive its share of development”.
According to Dzifa Attivor, the Eastern corridor roads which runs through the
constituency is a
priority programme for the government, adding that everything is being done to
ensure its execution.
She also touched on the positive impact of the
Savannah Accelerated Development Authority (SADA) assuring the people that its
implementation will improve their lot.
The Regional Chairman of the NDC, Kwesi Aboagye,
said the signs are on the wall that there is no way that the opposition can win
the Nkwanta North seat again, especially in 2012.
He lauded the DCE for the great sacrifice he made by
stepping down, adding that it’s a sign of maturity and integrity.
For his part, the Constituency Chairman, Alhaji
Abdul Anas Anakwa, appealed to the national leadership for support to be able
to annex the seat from the NPP.
John Oti Bless, who was endorsed as the NDC
candidate for Nkwanta North by popular acclamation after the other contestant ,
Paul Gyato, who is the DCE, stepped down said he will work hard to unite all
interest groups within the party for total victory.
On his part, Paul Gyato said the government has done
more than enough for the NDC to win the seat. He said the area has seen
tremendous infrastructural development since President Mills took over the
reigns of leadership.
He assured the candidate of his unflinching support
adding that never will the NPP win the Nkwanta North seat again.
Also present at the function was the Regional
Oragniser, Henry Ametefe, Regional Secretary, Simon Viglo, the Regional Youth
