Story: Kwame Asare Boadu, Kumasi
THE Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) branch of the Tertiary Students Confederacy (TESCON) of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has thrown its weight behind Mr Akwasi Osei-Adjei in his re-election bid for the Ejisu-Juaben Constituency parliamentary ticket of the party.
The group said Mr Osei-Adjei, who is the Minister of Foreign Affairs, had proved to be a capable leader and it was important that he was re-elected to continue with the good work.
Ms Akosua Amankwaa, Financial Secretary, speaking on behalf of TESCON, called on the delegates to vote massively for Mr Osei-Agyei to enable him to continue with his good works.
“Mr Osei-Adjei stands tall amongst the other competitors in the race in terms of experience and performance,” he said.
The build-up to the constituency primary had been very tense.
Mr Osei-Adjei was vetted about a week ago but no date has been fixed for the primary.
Ms Amankwaa said competence was a major prerequisite for seeking political power, “ and this is where Mr Osei-Adjei has no equals”.
Ms Amankwaa noted that since Mr Osei-Adjei became the MP for the constituency, he had never neglected the development of the communities because the records were there for all so see.
She said there was the need to move the constituency’s development agenda to another level, and that Mr Osei-Adjei was in a better position to lead that crusade.
She said so far the NPP presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo, had conducted himself very well in the electioneering, an indication of his political maturity.
In a related development, Mr J.K. Owusu-Boakye, the Special Political Assistant to the MP for Old Tafo/Pankrono, Dr Anthony Akoto Osei, has called on delegates to the Ejisu-Juaben Constituency primary of the party to reward dedication and commitment to duty by voting massively for Mr Osei-Adjei.
