A disqualified parliamentary aspirant on the ticket of the ruling NPP in the Abirim constituency, Daniel Kojo Afrifa has charged members of his party to put the past behind them and forge ahead towards attaining victory 2020 in unity.
According to him, what ever happened during the just ended parliamentary contest where he was disqualified should be regarded as a bygone, but instead, forge ahead in unity to attain victory for the NPP in the December 7th elections.
“I am calling on all my fellow patriots of the elephant party, especially my fans and supporters to put my disqualification behind them as I have done myself and come together in unity to work assiduously to give victory to the NPP in December’s elections. Even though I wasn’t happy about what happened, I still believe that the party first”. He said.
Mr. Daniel Afrifa made these remarks when he visited his community, Akim Afosu where he hails to register for his voter ID card and inspect progress on the ongoing voter registration exercise in the area.
The former parliamentary aspirant, aside his registration and visit, also took the opportunity to distribute some personal protective equipments such as hand sanitizers, nose masks, tissues, medicated soaps and several other items to the registration officers to be used at the various centres.
Delivering the PPE’s to the registration officers and registrants, Mr. Afrifa further noted that, the items are intended to help the citizenry protect themselves against contracting the coronavirus disease and stay alive.
“I have distributed these PPE’s to everybody so that whether here or at home, people must stay safe. As the president said, he and his government have knowledge on how to revive and bring to life a fallen economy but lacks same knowledge on how to restore a lost human life and therefore everyone must adhere to the safety protocols outlined so far”. He added.
The disqualified aspirant again used the opportunity to appeal to all constituents to fully part take in the ongoing registration exercise because the number of registrants in every jurisdiction will inform government on how to appropriate the national cake evenly.
“Let me also say that since I came I have not heard or seen anybody bus people to any part of this constituency to do any untoward behaviour and that is good. It tells you that all the hullabaloo about busing people is fake and must be regarded as such. Again I will like to plead with all stakeholders in this year’s elections, especially our Members of Parliament to exercise restraint and call their supporters to order in order to reduce the few violent acts that seeks to mar the progress and beauty of this rather smooth electoral exercise”. He noted.
