An aspiring Parliamentary Candidate for Bortianor-Ngleshie-Amanfro constituency on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party, Hon. Gifty Mensah says she is not scared to compete with the four men who has also filed their nominations.
Five people has filed nominations to contest in the Bortianor-Ngleshie-Amanfro constituency primaries of the New Patriotic Party.
Among the five (5), Hon. Gifty Mensah is the only woman which has earned her the name “Yaa Asantewaa of Bortianor-Ngleshie-Amanfro constituency.
Speaking to SOKY NEWS, the “Yaa Asantewaa” of the race said she is very bold and strongly believe she will conquer the four men in the race.
Explaining why delegates should vote for her, she said she has lived in the constituency and worked as a teacher for over 20 years which makes her know and understand the pain and cry of the constituents.
She encouraged the delegates never to lose hope but rather rally strongly behind her and when she wins, she will never stop help she has been rendering to the constituent with the little she has, but will expand it by creating block, gari, fish factories to reduce the unemployment rate in the constituency.
“As a teacher, I know how to work with everybody and am passionate to see the success of everyone so please vote for me, and you will never regret” she pleaded.
Hon. Gifty Mensah also advised the youth and delegates not to vote for candidates who give them money but rather vote for people with good campaign messages.
According to her, 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 an 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.
With a Ga language “K3 ale bo 333 b3 ale bo” which means if the people know you, they know you, she advised all her followers to go out and do a clean campaign without attacking others because they are the same people who will help he in campaigning for the seat in the general election after she wins the primaries.
