Bolga needs a unifier, vote for me – Ayamga

Accra, Sep 15, GNA – A Chartered Accountant, Mr. Timothy Azaa Ayamga who is contesting the Bolgatanga East Constituency primary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has urged delegates to give the nod to a unifier who would bring the desired change to the Constituency.

He said it was time that delegates scrutinized the capabilities, competence and qualities of those they want to represent their interest, insisting that leaders should be examined for their honesty, compassion, integrity, confidence and flexibility.

Speaking in an interview with the Ghana News Agency at the weekend, Mr Ayamga said it was important that those vying for political office are trusted personalities whose aspirations to lead is borne out of a genuine desire to change the lives of the people, and promote the development and growth of the community.

He said many electorates have been disillusioned with those who lead them because they failed to critically examine those individuals, who have rather sought their personal reliefs and brought about disunity in the community.

‘We need to ensure that those we seek to lead us politically are people who have been committed to the wellbeing of our communities and not those who only seek to make personal gain out of the people’.

Describing himself as a grassroots person, Mr Ayamga stated that his yearning to contest the party parliamentary primary is because he believes he is a problem solver, who would reorganize the party, chart the right path for development and stimulate the needed unity to attract more followers for the NDC.

He said he aims to empower the women and the teeming youth of the area in order to bring about the change that the community sought.

When asked what he was bringing to the table, Mr. Ayamga intimated that when given the nod, his priority is to arrest the falling standards of education in the Constituency, and to institute an education trust fund to help the needy but brilliant students in the area.

He said that he would also take tentative steps to address the unemployment situation in the Constituency through the creation of a vocational training centre to empower the youth with requisite skills to go into industrialization and exploit the tourism and hospitality potential of the area.

The Aspirant said that he would ensure that he spared no effort to improve upon the social amenities and the sanitation situation in the Constituency, adding that he would lend the needed support for the empowerment of chiefs and opinion leaders to function in their roles as agents of change.

He said that he would also make sure that the constituents accessed the needed health easily by enabling both the aged and the young register with the National Health Insurance Scheme, as well as assist with renewals for the aged when their subscriptions expired.

He asked delegates to affirm his candidature because he was a dependable, affable, trustworthy and competent person who has the ability to change the fortunes of the Bolgatanga East Constituency.

Mr Ayamga would be contesting the Deputy Attorney General, Mr Dominic Ayine and two others.
