Elect NDC parliamentary candidates with revolutionary spirit – Former DCE

Mr Frank Gyamwodie, first District Chief Executive of the Ho District Assembly, has exhorted delegates of the National Democratic Congress’s (NDC) constituency primaries to elect parliamentary candidates imbued with the Party’s “revolutionary spirit”.

He said that was the only way the NDC could halt the alienation of its rank and file.

Mr Gyamwodie was speaking at the launch of Mr Benjamin Kpodo’s campaign towards the party’s primary in Ho Central.

Captain George Nfodjo, retired is the incumbent MP for Ho Central.

“Some politicians have succeeded in killing the revolutionary spirit of the NDC”, Mr Gyamwodie noted.

He said many party members, admirers and sympathizers had lost the inspiration which propelled the party from its beginning because of the posture of many of the party’s front-liners.

Mr Gyamwodie said a good number of the party’s committed cadres and founders    had been rendered insignificant to the party and described Mr Kpodo as one who presented the finest opportunity to revive the spirit of the NDC in Ho Central.

“He has something to give, give him the opportunity. This is an opportunity to correct what is gone bad. We came from afar and where we are heading to is equally far”, Mr Gyamwodie appealed to delegates.

Mr Frank Adoba, a member of Mr Kpodo’s campaign team, said the race to elect a candidate for the in 2012 election should not create enemies among party members.

“We the supporters of Mr Benjamin Komla Kpodo believe that if he is elected as the MP better goals and aspirations will be achieved,” Mr Adoba said.

Mr Kpodo said his mission was to provide first class political services to the people in the Constituency, the Volta Region and Ghana through the application of his financial, economic and managerial experience and skills acquired over thirty-five years in private and public service.

He said he would form an “appropriate leadership team to enhance facilities and seek higher performance levels in education, economic activities and social welfare within the constituency and beyond through innovative resource mobilization and equitable distribution thereof.”

“In my term as a Member of Parliament we will seek to upgrade Ho from Municipality to Metropolitan status. That will enhance resources; and further democratize by the establishment of sub-metropolitan assemblies,” Mr Kpodo said.
