Businessman and New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary Candidate aspirant for Adentan Constituency Zak Rahman has revealed that his election tomorrow at the party’s primary will increase the fortunes of the party in the area.
According to him, his work within and outside politics has won the hearts of the voting public in the area and as such, his election tomorrow will consolidate and increase the gains of the party in the 2020 polls.
Mr Zak Rahman who has over the years been engaged in self-help projects for the Adentan Community including the provision of start-up equipment for unemployed youth of the area, believes he stands a better chance to improve the lives of the people in the area since he has lived with them.
“I understand the needs of the constituency and I have over the years contributed my quota to their wellbeing. If delegates mandate me tomorrow it would be a reinforcement of my commitment to the needs of residents I have lived with for several decades. I have been doing a whole lot including the provision of jobs for the people of Adenta even when I was not interested in contesting”, he revealed to MyNewsGh.com.
In his view, the NPP cannot afford to lose the Adentan seats promising to retain it with a wider margin if elected to face the NDC candidate in the 2020 polls which is barely 6 months away.
“There is the need to retain President Akufo-Addo for another four years and we residents of Adentan must play a key role in this enterprise. I think we can only do that if the party elects a marketable candidate which is me to win the seat and bring the glory and honour we have over the years been yearning for”, he added.
Five persons are contesting for the Adentan slot in tomorrow’s primaries including the incumbent Yaw Buabeng Asamoa.
They are; Emmanuel Kwesi Mantey, Freda Agyeman Sarpong, Zak Rahman and Alfred Ababio Kumi but Pollster Ben Ephson has predicted that incumbent Adentan MP Yaw Buaben Asamoa and the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) will lose the Adentan seat in the 7 December 2020 polls should the lawmaker retain the ticket in the party’s parliamentary primaries.
