Humado Is Hot

Former Minister of Sports, Clement Kofi Humado is struggling to retain his seat in Anlo owing to fierce challenge from one Wonder Victor Kutor.

Mr Kutor, the immediate-past constituency Deputy Secretary of the party, would contest in the upcoming primaries of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the constituency in a bid to become the parliamentary candidate of the party.

The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Keta, Sylvester Tonyeyah withdrew from the race.

Even though Humado has been in parliament since 2004 and has had the privilege of serving as Minister of Sports and Agric, his not-so good performance at the Sports Ministry and his involvement in the infamous Ghana Youth Employment and Entrepreneurial and Development Agency (GYEEDA) scandal seem to be haunting him.

Mr Kutor is seen as a grassroots man and major threat to Hon Humado following the expansion of the electoral college of the NDC to include all card-bearing members.

‘I know I am young man without lots of resources but I’m in this race because of my rich messages which are education first, jobs for the youth, support for farmers, fishermen and traders and development for all,’ he told journalists recently.

‘In respect of education I started supporting the schools within Anlo by providing free books and computers since 2014 under my ‘Back to school Campaign’. As to whether I would win the primaries I leave that to the voters and the Almighty God,’ he said.
