A hopeful to the parliamentary candidature of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Weija-Gbawe has asked candidates contesting the NDC regional elections to campaign on issues that affect the people not personalities.
Nii Saka Allotey also known in politics as Nii Bi Dzata Bii, also called on supporters of the candidates to shun indifference, rise against hate speeches, and be mindful not to destabilize the unity and stability in the country’s largest opposition political party.
He noted that the forthcoming elections were critical to the NDC winning the 2024 presidential election and majority of parliamentary seats in the Greater Accra Region hence the need to exercise discipline in their campaigns and other political activities.
Nii Bi Dzata Bi said this Tuesday when he presented cash worth 15,000 Ghana cedis to candidates from Weija-Gbawe constituency vying for Regional chairmanship, Deputy Regional Communications officer and Youth Organizer’s positions.
Reports has it that some gurus of the party as well as electoral area coordinators and branch executives have begun mounting pressure on Dzata Bi to contest the party’s 2024 parliamentary primaries but he has not declared his intention yet.
Speaking to radiogoldlive.com shortly after the presentation, Mr. Allotey who is a business mogul and security expert admonished candidates and their supporters to avoid hate speech, abusive language, and all actions capable of affecting the success of the elections.
He advised the electorate not to succumb to inducement to sell their votes, further advising them to vote wisely in order to elect credible and patriotic leaders.
Dzata Bii, who is optimistic about the success of the forthcoming polls, said NDC delegates were determined more than ever to vote for candidates of their choice.
He also expressed worry over the state of the country’s economic crisis that has resulted in prices of food and other goods rising daily, worsening living conditions for ordinary consumers.
