Dickson Kurug Kpelim-Etime, a parliamentary aspirant for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Talensi Constituency, has emphasised the importance of a constructive and issue-based campaign in the upcoming primary election. Speaking on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show with Gerard Asagi, Kurug expressed his belief that the upcoming primaries in the Talensi Constituency are focused on ideas rather than acrimony and name-calling.
Highlighting his campaign’s approach, Mr. Kurug stated, “We have gone around, and anywhere we go, we don’t mention any of our contestants’ names. We are all friends. It’s a contest of ideas, and that’s what we believe in.”
He further noted that his message has resonated strongly with the delegates, who assert that, “If it is about messages, then Dickson Kurug Kpelim-Etime is miles ahead of his other friends and uncles who are also in the race.”
Mr. Kurug Kpelim-Etime urged the delegates to consider competence over relationships when casting their votes, emphasising the need for effective and capable leadership to drive development in the Talensi constituency.
He stated, “they [delegates] say that in terms of messages, I am miles ahead, then it is messages that will bring about development. It’s not about being a brother, a sister, or hailing from a specific place. We are all one, and we are looking for the best person who will lead us to realise the transformational development that we need. We are lagging behind, and we need not to.”
The Talensi Constituency primaries for the NDC are scheduled to take place on May 13, 2023. As the Talensi Constituency eagerly awaits the primaries, the focus on competence and effective leadership remains at the forefront of Mr. Kurug’s campaign, signalling his determination to bring about the development the constituency truly deserves.
