Entrepreneur and philanthropist, Mrs. Linda Korkor Tsu Adadevoh, has sworn to lead the NPP in the Lower Manya Krobo constituency to wrestle the seat from the opposition NDC who has occupied the seat since it was created in 1996. She made this known after filing her nomination to contest the NPP primaries.
The 2013 ‘YOKAMA’, Development Queen for the Krobo Land, has been a major financier of the party in the constituency over the years. And has promised to support the party in a better fashion if elected as the next parliamentary candidate of the NPP in the constituency. She stressed that she was the best person to lead the party at this material moment because humility, accessibility, loyalty, long service, industriousness and above all competence will be key going forward.
The development-oriented woman was accompanied by hundreds of delegates to the party office amidst drumming, dancing and funfair in the company of hundreds of delegates and party supporters.
Addressing the delegates and party supporters after successfully filing her nomination, Mrs. Linda Adadevoh noted, “One person cannot do this work alone. We need to collectively join forces to win this seat for the first time. We need to unite our ranks and grapple power from the NDC who has nothing to show after several years of holding the seat. Poverty Reduction, Creating Job opportunities, Empowering the Youth and Women, Education, Education & Education for my constituents will be my main obsession as Member of Parliament if given the nod”.
She further stated that, “I am convinced our delegates will reward my hard work, commitment, sacrifice, patriotism, selflessness and loyalty over the years. This primary is just an internal contest; our main aim is to beat the NDC in the 2020 general elections. I have had the opportunity to address societal issues in diverse ways throughout my life experience; and until now, I have always done things from behind. But it’s now time to lead the way. I will make sure we banish the NDC completely in this constituency if you give me the nod”, the humble Mrs. Linda pleaded.
One (1) other candidate who was also in the race to contest for the primaries, has now withdrawn from the contest; and thrown his support for Mrs. Linda Korkor Tsu Adadevoh.
