Municipal Chief Executive for Bolgatanga, Joseph Amiyuure has declared his readiness to wrestle power from the incumbent NDC Member of Parliament for Bolgatanga Central Constituency, Isaac Adongo.
Mr. Amiyuure who is contesting the upcoming parliamentary primaries of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) said he is the only person who can win the Bolgatanga Central Constituency seat for the NPP for the first time.
Mr. Amiyuure who likened himself to the Goliath in the Bible, expressed optimism of winning the party’s primaries to eventually become the first NPP MP in the Bolgatanga Central Constituency.
Speaking exclusively to A1 News, he said having been an effective Assembly Member before, “I have served selflessly at the lower level and I want to translate that selflessness even to the National level by being a Member of Parliament.”
Touching on his capability to unseat the incumbent NDC MP if he wins the parliamentary primaries, Mr. Amiyuure said “I am hopeful of that. if am given the opportunity to be the parliamentary candidate for my party in this constituency, I will win the seat for the NPP for the first time.”
Until his appointment as MCE, Mr. Amiyuure contested and lost twice in the previous parliamentary primaries of the NPP. But just like President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo who became president after contesting 3 consecutive times Mr. Amiyuure indicated that his current position as MCE makes him the best candidate for the NPP among his contenders.
