The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary Candidate for Ningo-Prampram Constituency, Alexander Martey has charged the people of the area especially the youth to always make it a point to choose the ‘right person’ by vpting wisely in the upcoming general elections.
To him, vote for someone who will not only lead them in Parliament but also ensure a rapid and total development of the Constituency.
Mr. Martey, a stiff contender to Sam George, the sitting Member of Parliament (MP) for the Ningo-Prampram Constituency is of the view that, it is of importance for them to vote for someone who demonstrates qualities of high moral competency and above all, selfless leadership and not on party lines, colours or affiliation.
“A great negotiator and a good lobbyist is what Ningo-Prampram needs to drive development and growth irrespective of political affiliation”, he admonished.
In an exclusive interview with this reporter during wee hours of last Thursday, Mr Martey said: “Let’s all forget about all the political colors we belong to in Ningo-Prampram and look at the person or personality who will represent us, make us proud and help us to get the necessary development that we need in our environment”.
The Ningo-Prampram constituency has been under the tutelage of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) since 1993 to date but lacks the needed development.
Aside the underdevelopment nature of the area, youth unemployment, lack of capacity building and employment opportunities for the inhabitants coupled with bad roads are major challenges the constituents are faced with.
Lamenting on the woes of the constituents, Mr. Alexander Martey revealed that, all the numerous challenges faced in the Constituency will be amicably resolved when given the mandate to lead in the upcoming general elections.
He therefore promised jobs, capacity building opportunities (both in informal and formal ways) for the youth as well as government support to help fix up the unmotorable roads in the Constituency citing the Afienya-Dahwenya road to alleviate the plight of the folks.
According to him, he is embarking on a ‘rescue mission’ with his campaign project which hinges on 3 areas; unity, empowerment and self-less leadership, hence rescue the constituency from the conundrum it has found itself as a result of its current representation in parliament.
Mr Alex Martey who doubles as a presidential staffer with the Operations Directorate at the Jubilee House says he is the best bet for the Ningo Prampram and that he has already gotten approval from the majority of the people based on merit.
When asked why joining the political race for the Parliamentary seat, the 45-year-old Management Consultant explained that, “I didn’t just got up to say I’m going to contest for any position in Ningo-Prampram but from 2017-2018, I have been able to push some of our youth into government establishments.
This he noted motivated the young people who saw his good works and kind heart to help therefore called on him to join the race, hence willing to say push him, support him to rather be their MP.
Meanwhile, he used the ocassion to call on all Ghanaians to respect the World Health Organisation (WHO) protocols as well as government’s directives on the partial lockdown and adhere to the basic protective measures such as practicing of social distancing, regularly washing of hands, maintaining personal hygiene always and staying at home among others to stop the spread of the deadly coronavirus in order to stay safe.
