…As Branch Executives Root For ‘Chairman Kwetey’
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament (MP) for the Ningo-Prampram Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, Samuel Nartey George’s dream of returning to Parliament in 2021 is likely to hit hard rocks, as chairman for the constituency Michael Tetteh Kwetey is poised to undoing him in the party’s coming parliamentary primaries.
Yesterday, some executives who believeMichael Tetteh Kweteyis the only person that can lead the party to victory in the area come 2020, picked and filled nomination forms for their chairman.
One of the constituency executives who refused to disclose his identity in an interview said he believed the current MP has failed the party and the entire constituents and should therefore be voted out before he brings disgrace to the NDC come 2020.
“Our great grandfathers who described history many years ago as the account of exploits of spirited people were utterly right because there is always a time in the life of a people when the kismets of a hero and that of the larger society knit flawlessly. I dare say, such is the case of a business magnate, a humanitarian and politician in one of the strongholds of the National Democratic Congress, NDC, in the Greater Accra Region” the executive member disclosed.
According to him it is clear that irrespective of the number of contenders and pretenders; including the incumbent MP, who may parade themselves to contest the 2020 parliamentary candidacy position of the NDC in the constituency, Mr. Kwetey stands out as the chosen one.
“And let me point it out that, it is not merely on the account of his humanitarian reasons that the contest is a done deal for him. No! Many factors account for that. Let’s get down to business!” he indicated
“Since Mr. Kwetey joined the party in his young age as an ordinary fisherman, rose to become the secretary of the constituency and being the only living legend who dared to go into a political contest against Hon E.T Mensah, the most feared and dangerous politician in the constituency at the time, in 2012, Mr. Kwetey stood out before his people as a shining star. He became the people’s man. His vision and passion for the well-being of the constituency boomed with the people. With his businesses run-down by desperate political foes, he still stood his grounds and made available the needs of the poor and those who came his way. He never abandoned his people at his time of difficulties. A born leader he has been!” he stated.
The constituency executive member noted, Mr. Kwetey as a successful industrialist with welfares ideology and love for his people, most of whom are living in abject poverty, he has a simple mission- to take his constituency and people out of the woods.
Also as a self-made politician who owes nothing to political donors and financiers, he has always struggled for the betterment of the downtrodden in his constituency and people of all walks of life. If he was the God of Ningo-Prampram, I’m sure he will probably insist that his people be set free from poverty and suffering. He would’ve insisted that everybody be given a decent job to earn a comfortable life, he noted.
