Story: Kwame Asare Boadu, Boamang
THE Member of Parliament (MP) for Afigya Sekyere West, Mr Albert Kan-Dapaah, has been acclaimed as the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) parliamentary candidate for the constituency in the December elections.
At the end of the filing of nominations, Mr Kan-Dapaah who is also the Minister of Defence was the only one who had filed to contest.
Officials of the Electoral Commission, who supervised the endorsement at Boamang last Friday, therefore declared him as the duly elected candidate for the elections.
It is the third time Mr Kan-Dapaah would be running on the ticket of the NPP and he had pledged to work hard with party members to improve on the party’s performance.
Mr Kan-Dapaah is regarded in his constituency as a performing MP and delegates were convinced that his performance would draw more votes to the NPP.
In an interview, Mr Kan-Dapaah, a chartered accountant by profession, said he believed in service to the people.
He was therefore ready to lead the constituency to another level of its development agenda.
He called for unity within the party to ensure that the NPP win massively in the elections.
Mr Kan-Dapaah thanked his constituents for the confidence reposed in him, and pledged that he would not disappoint them.
