An aspiring Parliamentary Candidate for Bortianor-Ngleshie-Amanfrom constituency on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party, Hon. Gifty Mensah has advised the youth and delegates not to vote for candidates who give them money but rather vote for people with good campaign messages.
In an interview with SOKY NEWS, Hon. Gifty Mensah said whenever people pay money before they are voted into power, they think of enriching themselves instead of making the welfare of the voters their priority because they think they have already paid the voters.
But when the voters vote for the person with a good campaign message, he/she is obliged to fulfill the promises made to them.
Citing as example, Hon. Gifty Mensah said HE. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo is doing all this tremendous work because Ghanaians voted massively for him in 2016 due to the campaign messages and promises he gave them of which they are looking forward to rewarding him again in 2020 with a second term.
She also advised delegates to even vote massively for any polling station executive who joins the race claiming they really understand the pain the people are going through since they have always been with them
“And sometimes if a polling station member joins the race, you must vote for the person because he/she understands it if you say you carried someone at your back during campaign time because he/she has also gone through that before” she said.
In as much as the New Patriotic Party is encouraging women in parliament, She added that delegates should not just vote for just any woman at all but for competent and hard-working women, who can help the development of the constituency.
She then advised all members of the New Patriotic Party not to relax by thinking that, 2020 will be a ‘cool chop’ because of the tremendous works of HE. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo but rather work hard by making all the great things the Nana Addo led government has done.
