Story: Samuel Duodu, Nsoatre
THE Brong Ahafo Regional Minister, Mr Ignatius Baffour Awuah, has formally launched his campaign to contest the Sunyani West Parliamentary seat on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the December general election.
He has therefore pledged to bring to bear his youthful exuberance and political experience to lobby for more development projects to the constituency.
According to the Regional Minister, he had served in various capacities at the governmental level for a long time and had gained a lot of experience to represent the people in Parliament satisfactorily.
Mr Baffour Awuah made the pledge at a rally attended by some ministers of state, Members of Parliament (MP) and other NPP party faithful that preceded the launching of his campaign at Nsoatre, his hometown.
He urged NPP supporters to undertake the electioneering based on policies and programmes introduced by the government that were aimed at improving the living conditions of the people.
Mr Baffour Awuah observed that the NPP was poised to retain power and capture all the parliamentary seats in the region and therefore appealed to members not to be complacent but go all out to ensure an overwhelming victory for the party.
He advised the youth not to allow themselves to be used by self seeking politicians to foment trouble during, before and after the general elections and so to desist from all acts that could threaten the peace and stability of the nation.
Mr Baffour Awuah also appealed to supporters of the party to conduct their campaigns devoid of insults and acrimony, adding that such behaviours had the tendency to create confusion which could mar the elections.
He cautioned that voting the National Democratic Congress back to power would spell doom for the country since the party had nothing to offer Ghanaians.
