The people of the Upper East Region most especially voters in the Builsa South Constituency have been reminded that it was high time they yanked themselves from the political shackles of injustice and deprivation from the Opposition NDC.
This is according to an aspiring Parliamentary Candidate of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Builsa South Constituency who doubles as the District Chief Executive, Daniel Kwame Gariba. He is therefore urging the delegates to deposit the parliamentary mandate in him since he is apparently the best match for the opposition NDC judging from his records and contributions to the constituency.
He said this in an interview with A1 News after a massive and colorful ceremony to mark his filing of nominations to contest the primaries. Kwame Gariba was the Parliamentary Candidate for the NPP in the 2016 general elections but lost to the incumbent MP, Dr. Clement Apaak. In the upcoming Parliamentary Primaries, he is being contested by an unknown opponent within the party one Thomas Adama.
But Mr. Gariba has expressed optimism that he will sail through the primaries because of the confidence the delegates have in him adding that, what prompted his decision to contest again was a call from the people and the fact that the people of Builsa South have toiled and have been disrespected by the NDC since 1992. So the NPP needs someone of his caliber to cause that breakthrough.
He has also indicated that his government led by President Akufo Addo has performed exceedingly to the expectations of the people of Builsa South and waiting to reward him with massive votes and a Parliamentary candidate. He is therefore sending a signal to the NDC to prepare and leave soon.
‘’We have performed very well in terms of development in Builsa South in just this our short time in office, some group of people could not do what we have done in eight years and I know for sure that the people of Builsa south are discerning and will reward us for liberating them from their burdens… it is time to let the NDC know that the people here cannot be taken for granted..Let us come together to say no to slavery and political shackles of injustice from the NDC’’ he said.
Despite the fact that the NDC has enjoyed political overwhelming support from Builsa South Constituency since 1996, not much can be pointed out as benefits from their loyalty to the party.
