Winner of the just ended Parliamentary primaries of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Anlo Constituency of the Volta Region, Richard Kwami Sefe has vowed to serve the interests of the constituents while in Parliament next year.
Mr. Sefe said his decisions, actions and works as Member of Parliament would be informed by the people’s interests saying, he could not give wild promises but what “I vow to do is to be their ears and mouth in Parliament.”
He identified the needs of the constituency which can best be classified into coastal and inland communities and spoke of the way forward to bring development to the area.
“In order to best serve the interests and address the needs of the people which include road network and senior high school in the Shime area for example and employment among others for our people along the coast, I intend to lure investors into the constituency, prudently use the MP’s common Fund and work with everyone that matters to make life bearable for the good people of the Anlo Constituency.
Mr. Sefe spoke to Voltaonlinegh after winning the primaries (the incumbent MP, Hon. Clement Kofi Humado bowed out from) held on Saturday, August 24 at Anloga EP Primary School.
The educationist beat competitions from 5 contenders, Prof. Collins Stephen Ahorlu, Sedina Christine Tamekloe-Attionu, Joseph Agbeko Kpogo, Wonder Victor Kutor and Bright Edward Kodzo Demordzi.
He appealed to the failed aspirants to put the contest behind them and collaborate with him for victory in the 2020 general elections for “our biggest contender is the New Patriotic party.”
The Parliamentary candidate also promised to in consultation with the various executives in the constituency, deal with the “greedy and selfish” tag on the NDC in the region to improve the electoral fortunes of the party in both the Parliamentary and Presidential elections.
The Constituency Chairman, Rolex Agbey Miheso was happy with the general conduct of elections in the area and thanked the delegates particularly for ensuring sanity throughout the process.
“All the delegates conducted themselves so well since morning that you couldn’t tell delegates coming from opposing camps. They were friendly and joked among themselves, thus, making the work of the police here very easy.”
Mr. Miheso expressed hope that the unsuccessful aspirants would remain united and work together with the winner and the party for victory in 2020.
