The road to Parliament for aspirants of Ayensuano seat in the Eastern Region for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) got hotter, yesterday, after Reindolf Mark Tetteh filed his nomination forms.
Mark Tetteh, affectionately called TT, speaking to the media after filing his nomination said he has availed himself to contest the incumbent Member of Parliament for the area, following a call from the grassroots.
So far three other persons are also lacing their boots to battle the incumbent Member of Parliament, Samuel Ayeh-Paye in the upcoming parliamentary primary slated for 25th April.
According to ‘TT’, the incumbent MP for the constituency has failed to understand the feelings of the people in the area of education.
TT says, as a native of the area, he has identified education as a major problem confronting the people and wants to step in to make a difference.
He added that, he supported Ayeh-Paye financially as a patron of the party in the 2012 elections but thinks he must step in to get the area out of the doldrum, adding that the incumbent has failed to live up to expectations.
According to him, the grassroots are yearning for a change and intend to vote against the party should the incumbent continue to lead them and that, he being a dye-in-the-wool party member, would save the constituency and the party.
“The MP has led the constituency for three consecutive times and I think it is about time we changed the direction of the area. The writings are clear on the wall that the people need a change and me being a grassroots person, I have availed myself to help my community and the country as well” he said.
“My motive is to help improve education and also take the welfare of the people will be paramount to him. I will develop the area because Ayensuano is far behind in terms of development,” he added.
He added that it is time for delegates to elect someone who understands the feelings of the people and can best solve their problems, saying he is a patron for the party is the right man to lead them.
