The New Patriotic Party, Parliamentary Candidate for La Dadekotopon constituency, Joseph Gerald Tetteh Nyanyofio has promised to increase the party’s votes in the 7th December general elections to make the area a safe zone for the NPP
Speaking to the New Crusading Guide Newspaper in an exclusive interview , Mr Nyanyofio said through hardwork he and his campaign team has broken the influence held by the NDC in the constituency and mobilized the constituents to rally for a convincing victory in the elections.
“I am very confident and very certain of retaining the seat for the NPP in La Dadekotopon based on the work done so far. I come from the heart of La Dadekotopon and I am very connected to the grassroots and making sure that the needs of the people are provided”, he stated.
He said even when he wasn’t a parliamentary candidate, he provided a lot of opportunities for the youth in the constituency on education at a time he had no political authority and was hopeful that with political authority he would be doing more to support them.
“When I become a member of parliament, I will leverage on my connections to lobby for job placements for all my constituents. Those who qualify for vacant jobs will also be supported through recommendations to enable them gain access. People who are confident to venture into entrepreneurship with creative abilities to solve problems will be supported financially and technically to establish themselves and also employ others”.
“A vote for me and a win for NPP will surely take La Dadekotopon to the Promised Land. And I will lead them to the Promised Land. I believe that there is more work to be done though we have done more in a bid to retain the seat. The youth feel connected to me and I will implement policies that will instill confidence in them.
Highlighting on policies and programs earmarked for implementation should he win, Mr Nyanyofio said he would focus on youth empowerment, entrepreneurship, sports and talent development.
“I have assured them that I will open doors for all of them without discrimination and work with everybody whether rich or poor, literate or illiterate, young or old regardless of tribe, religion or disability. In my constituency, people must know you as respectful, ready to create opportunities for them and being connected to them and these are the qualities they want in their representative in parliament”.
He said as part of his developmental programs, he intends to promote human capital policies like technical vocational education, entrepreneurship and the provision of financial and technical assistance to the productive class. He also emphasized prioritization of quality education through an effective monitoring and supervision of the delivery of teaching and learning materials as well as resourcing educational institutions in order to augment what government is already providing for them like libraries etc.
We will also offer career guidance and counselling to enable the youth make informed life choices. We also plan to implement preventive health care strategies, and free health care programs for the constituents, especially the aged, children and women. Issues related to sanitation will be seriously tackled. Garbage bins will be provided for the people to equip them in handling waste. I will also collaborate with the district assembly to initiate competitions among religious bodies, the clan houses in the community and other identifiable groups to promote sanitation in La Dadekotopon”.
