Nikyema Billa Alamzy, a candidate for the NDC’s parliamentary primary in the Upper East Region’s Chiana-Paga seat, has stated that boosting growth and lifting residents out of chronic poverty were two of the main reasons he decided to run.
Nikyema Billa Alamzy, a businessman by profession, stated that while he has done his part in terms of providing some social amenities for the people, there are certain decisions and projects that he cannot take or make as an individual, which is why he requires the support of the delegates to run for office in the 2024 elections.
“I have made some development projects, such as boreholes and an AstroTurf playing field, and provided soft financial support to others. But we need major projects, and without me having a bit of a voice to speak and lobby for more, I can’t do it alone.”
“So, I need your help so that collectively we can develop our area for ourselves.”
He added that if given the chance and subsequently wins the seat, the use of luxury vehicles usually given to MPs will be a no for him, as he would rather secure funds from such vehicles to improve more developmental needs for the constituents.
He therefore touched on some of the policies he will be implementing when given the chance on May 13th, 2023, to lead the party in the 2024 elections.
“I have realised that whenever an MP leaves office without completing some projects and the next MP comes, the next MP always abandons such projects and focuses on their own. So, I have decided that our Chapter 2 of my policies, if given the nod, will make sure resources are available to complete all abandoned projects that are left behind because those who started them are no longer in power. For instance, an ambulance was donated to the Paga hospital by a former MP, Leo Kaba, but has since broken down. I will fix it when the chance is given to me. Development is continuous, hence such will be the way to go.”
