As the National Democratic Congress (NDC) prepares for its nationwide Parliamentary Primaries this year; there appears to be some form of tension and anxiety especially within the rank and file of incumbent Members of Parliament (MPs) of the party.
Against the above, your authoritative ghananewsonline.com.gh is embarking on a survey of the various constituencies to ascertain the strength of the various aspirants that are likely to appear on the ballot paper for the primaries. In the form of an opinion poll the first phase of the survey is focused on the power house of politics in the Volta Region – the Ho Central Constituency.
We have deployed enough of our field officers into almost all major towns and villages within the Ho Central Constituency for a little over two weeks. Our officials were tasked to focus on some specific areas so as to get the right information for public consumption.
Among the leading names on list are the incumbent Member of Parliament for the area, Benjamin Kpodo, one Kafui Dzamefe and Edem Kofi Kpotosu.
Statements as derived from delegates and even most voters in the Constituency scored a low mark on the performance of the incumbent Member of Parliament, Benjamin Kpodo.
What can be said without any fear or favour is the fact that, Human Resource Practitioner Edem Kofi Kpotosu seems to have an edge over other aspirants whose names have popped up.
Proxies say his humility and love for humanitarian activities would see him emerging as the Parliamentary Candidate for the Ho Central constituency for the NDC moving into the 2020 elections.
What we have gathered again is that, even though Edem Kofi Kpotosu never was seen playing active politics in the past, his contributions towards the growth of individuals and the NDC as a party in the Constituency cannot be under estimated.
Issues of the lack of social amenities, poor road network, unavailability of health facilities and potable drinking water, unemployment are but a few of the challenges confronting the Constituency now. As these aspirants prepare to seek the mandate of delegates within the NDC fraternity as their Parliamentary Candidate, they must be looking at real and lasting solutions to solve problems.
