Majority of the Tema West Constituency Executives of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has declared support for the party’s parliamentary aspirant, Bill Boglo-Hedo, ahead of the party’s presidential and parliamentary primaries, calling on the youth in the area to strongly back any move that will see him emerge as a winner.
The die-hard NDC Constituency Executive members believe Bill Boglo-Hedo is the party’s surest bet to lead the youth in parliament in 2016.
Executive Secretary for Tema West Constituency, Police Station branch, Florence Asabea, in an exclusive interview over the weekend said: “Bill is the ultimate choice for the youth, a name on the lips of every youth within the constituency as their next Parliamentary candidate to lead the party to victory ahead of the presidential and parliamentary polls slated for November, 7”.
Chairperson of Tema West Constituency, Holy Child Nursery ‘B’ Sakumono ward, Cindy Afriyie Dapaah, said: “Bill is coming with a new hope, a hope which is lost in our Constituency for seven years, he’s bringing it to us so we all need to rally behind him. We want to support him and equally urge every youth to do so hoping by the grace of God he will take the seat for us”.
She revealed the youth are crying for a change of the party’s parliamentary candidate, adding that Bill has the ability to deliver and rescue the youth from the challenges of unemployment that confront them in the constituency which the former parliamentary candidates have failed to address.
“The grass roots are crying, they say they are all fed up but when they saw that Bill declared his intention to contest the primaries, their hopes are revived because they claimed they’ve seen a new hope in Bill so he’s the one and only person we are going to push for to win,” the chairperson noted.
According to Cindy Afriyie Daapah, the NDC lost the previous parliamentary elections including the 2012 election due to lack of competency on part of the former parliamentary candidates the party presented to contest the parliamentary elections.
“Our people need a competent person, someone who can be with us, someone who the youth can trust and can easily call on in times of need and that person is Bill, with him, the youth have hope,” she added.
Peter Yao Siame, the Constituency Youth Coordinator, said that he believes strongly it’s about time a young represented the party in the next parliamentary elections.
“So we’ve recognized that the whole youth in Tema West Constituency have realized that Bill is the right person that can handle their issues for them, someone who is easy to approach and someone who can attend to us his constituents anytime we need him so we think he is the best person to lead the us” he added.
They were speaking at Weija SCC DVLA park in Accra after a two-hour health walk event organized by the Obuobia Foundation to mark the birthday of NDC’s 2012 parliamentary candidate for Weija-Gbawe Constituency.
In a related development, the entire membership of Diplomatic Platform, an NDC youth group, has also joined the Tema West NDC Constituency Executives to declare unflinching support for Mr. Boglo-Hedo in his quest to win the November 7 parliamentary primary.
The group assured him of its steady support after joining over 1,000 supporters of Mrs Darko-Opoku to mark her 38th birthday on Saturday.
