Chairman of the National Premix Fuel Secretariat, Nii Lante Bannerman says he would unseat the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for Odododiodoo, Nii Lantey Vanderpuye come December 2020 when the country goes to the polls.
That, he said would be possible owing to the growing level of enthusiasm in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the constituency.
The constituency is believed to be gradually tilting towards the ruling party.
Speaking with journalists after the filing his nomination forms to seek reelection as the NPP’s parliamentary candidate in the constituency Bannerman said “it didn’t come by chance.
“After the 2016 elections, we have been able to nurture this constituency to make it viable and very attractive; this has happened because we have an executive that is unified.”
“These are people who hitherto were not part of us, a lot of them, but today they are here with us; I’m very grateful to the executives for the opportunity they have given me and I am assuring them that come 2020 we will deliver Odododiodoo”, he said of the loads of supporters who followed him to file his nomination, numbering around 2000.
“We are in a constituency that is basically difficult for the NPP to win this seat; you need to be able to win those on the other side to the party and like I said through the hard work of the executives and myself, including the Lord Mayor of Accra [Mohammed Adjei Sowah] and Lord Commey we have made the party very viable and attractive in the constituency…and I can assure, the NDC is living in a state of denial in the constituency and that’s one thing that gives me confidence”, he noted with confidence.
