Lawyer Charles Bawa-Dua, an aspiring parliamentary candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), is promising to change the face of the party in the Bongo constituency of the Upper East when he is elected parliamentary candidate and MP for the area.
The NDC has been winning the Bongo constituency seat since 1992, with the current MP being Edward Bawa. But to Lawyer Bawa-Dua, the NDC in the Bongo constituency is wobbling and on the verge of collapse because of disunity, and arrogance, among others, led by some individuals.
Lawyer Bawa-Dua expressed fear that the party in the constituency may lose the parliamentary seat to the NPP in the next general election if the divisions among party members continue.
“The party in this constituency has almost collapsed, the division is terrible, the party is wobbling. There is the need to protect the NDC party in order that it can win future elections.”
Under the leadership of the labour lawyer as a parliamentary candidate and MP for the Bongo constituency, he said he will do away with petty divisions and unite the party, capable of winning elections in Bongo “over the NPP that is almost neck and neck at elections in the constituency.”
Lawyer Charles Bawa-Dua made these remarks during the launch of his campaign, which will pave the way for vigorous campaigning ahead of the Saturday, May 13, 2023 parliamentary primaries. The campaign launch saw an estimated number of over 700 people, made up of constituency executives, polling station executives, elders of the party, and supporters of the NDC, all attending.
Lawyer Bawa-Dua who promised to re-organized the party in Bongo, lamented that the NDC, which has been winning elections in the constituency, has no party office for the party’s activities. He has therefore promised to pursue a policy that would ensure the construction of an ultramodern party office when he is elected MP for the Bongo constituency.
“Development has backtracked in this constituency. Education is a mess. We have several schools without the requisite teaching materials, without requisite furniture that would ensure that teachers and students are comfortable to teach and learn. My term as MP will see to the provision of furniture to the schools,” he stated.
He promised the people of Bongo potable drinking water and said he would lobby for the construction of major roads. He pledged to pursue policies that would develop the youth of Bongo and policies that would ensure that women in the area were economically independent.
He said the constituency has been denied its needed development because of “intimidations, lies, sheer arrogance, and hypocrisy” from some leaders. While pleading with the delegates of the NDC to elect him as the parliamentary candidate, Lawyer Charles Bawa-Dua promised to change the narrative when he is elected MP for Bongo.
