…On NPP’s Quest To Win Seat
The Member of Parliament (MP) for the Kpone-Katamanso Constituency, Hon. Nii Laryea Afotey Agoo has declared that he has already secured his constituency’s seat for his party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and that the ruling NPP may win the seat only when he has passed on into eternity.

“It would be over my dead body before the NPP can win the Kpone-Katamanso Constituency parliamentary seat, because I would not let go even after I have retired from active politics,” Nii Laryea declared.

According to him, he had already prepared the grounds for continuous victory over the NPP in the Constituency for many years to come and therefore the dreams of the NPP to win the seat at least for the first time in the history of the party would never become a reality. He explained that this is because the NPP under the presidency of President J A. Kufuor has committed a very serious offense against the people in the constituency, when the President refused to allow the Kpone Chocolate factory to start operation.

He said the continuous delay by the NPP in allowing the company to start operating is that which has made it clear to the discerning people in the Constituency that the NPP has some hatred for them. He therefore stated that the earlier the government takes a second look at its stand in relation to the problem of the company and allows it to start work, the better it would be for it. The man known in political circles as ‘Lion’, also accused the Kufuor administration of abrogating a water project contract awarded at a cost of ¢5billion in early 2000 by the NDC government to provide portable water to the people of Zeenu, Kubekro Nos 1 & 2 and Katamanso.

‘Lion’ described all persons in the Constituency who are supporters of the NPP as traitors and selfish people whose only ambition was to betray the people in the Constituency for their personal gains. Speaking to the Chronicle in an interview, Hon. Nii Laryea noted that, “This is why the NDC would continue to win the seat because it did its best to create at least one thousand permanent jobs for the people in the area but the NPP refused to let them work.

“This is enough grounds for the people in the constituency to evaluate and assess the difference between the two political parties in terms of which of them has the people at heart”, he affirmed. He stressed that he would continue to drum home to his Constituents how badly the NPP as a government has demonstrated pure and unadulterated detestation against them.

This, he said is the propaganda tool which he has adopted and would continue to use over and over again to expose the NPP on its selection operation mechanism to all and sundry in the Constituency.
