The candidate who represented the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) in the 2016 parliamentary election in the Bortianor Ngleshie Amafrom constituency, Nii Adjetey Larbie, has in an exclusive interview with Rainbow Radio’s Banahene said, his sacrifice for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is enormous.
According to him, he helped establish the ruling party in the constituency which was dominated by the National Democratic Congress. The candidate who contested in the 2012 parliamentary election for the NPP said, he sold his property at very cheaper rates just to represent the party in that constituency.
Describing himself as a strong pillar in the NPP, and Ghana’s political landscape, Rev. Adjetey Larbie said he could not depend on the party to campaign although he received some amount in 2012 and was able to garner over 150, 000 votes as compared to the 7,000 the party got in previous polls.
The Reverend Minister who has filed his CV for consideration as the MCE for Ga-South added, he is optimistic that he will be considered for the post.
According to him, ‘’I brought the NPP in this constituency. I used my own house as meeting grounds.
The fortunes of the NPP was not encouraging and so I contributed immensely to the success of this party in the consistency.
I did not contribute towards the party with the intention of a payback but I helped the party so we could break the dominance of the NDC.’’ Residents in the area are rooting for an indigene as the MCE and Rev. Adjetey Larbie remains the favourite among those who have submitted their CVs for the job.
A meeting according to deep throat sources had been held with Rev. Larbie appearing as favourite.
Expressing strong optimism, Rev. Larbie said ‘’I am not a novice in the NPP and that is why I applied for the MCE, let us wait and see what will come out of this then we can talk about anything else,’’ he said when asked why he has returned back to the NPP after crossing carpet to represent the PPP in the 2016 general polls.
His desire to apply as MCE he concluded, was borne out of the confidence the residents have in him and his willingness to serve in his best ability.
