Ghana: Shai-Osudoku MP Implores Delegates to Retain Her Through Primaries

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament (MP) for Shai-Osudoku Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, Linda Akweley Ocloo, has implored delegates of the party to vote her back as their candidate to continue her good work.

She indicated that she believed in a democracy that did not resort to insults, mudslinging, threats and attacks but matured and principled devoid of threats, attacks, insults and propaganda against innocent persons to deceive the electorates for votes.

“I believe in a democracy that does not resort to propaganda, insults and attacks because our democracy must thrive on maturity and principles so as to avoid politics of threats, attacks and propaganda against innocent persons just to deceive voters for votes,” Mrs Ocloo intimated.

She is in the contest with David Tetteh Assumeng, who served as MP of the constituency from 2005 to 2017 and Dr Michael Kpessah White, a former presidential staffer and a former Executive Director of the National Service Scheme as opponents.

Making the appeal at the launch of her campaign at Dodowa Wedokum in the Shai-Osudoku District after successfully going through the Greater Accra Regional vetting processes of the NDC to contest in the parliamentary primaries slated for May 13 this year, Mrs Ocloo called on members, supporters, faithful, well-wishers and sympathisers to build a formidable, attractive, robust and solid party on the foundations of oneness, togetherness, peace, harmony, cohesion and love.

Mrs Ocloo entreated the delegates not to tolerate persons seeking to create division among them because division brewed hatred and acrimony and reminded them of her stewardship which she carried out gallantly through the many socio-economic projects she had provided to ameliorate their plight.
