The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary candidate eying the Asante Akyem Central seat, Ernest Boateng said his ultimate aim was to wrestle power from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) that had retained the seat.
He told the Adnse3 fm after submitting his Nomination forms to the Electoral commission that he is going to unseat Hon. Kwame Anyimadu-Antwi, the incumbent MP Asante Akim Central Constituency.
Mr. Boateng wondered why the NDC kept losing the Asante Akyem Central seat, saying ”There is something wrong going on and there is the need to change the trend, and I strongly belief that I hold the key to addressing the issues to enable the party to take the seat.”
He said currently majority of people in the constituency had thrown their weight behind him and were giving him all the encouragement and assurance to help him to take over the seat.
Mr. Boateng said a major challenge confronting the NDC which was making it difficult to wrestle power from Kwame Anyimadu-Antwi, the NPP incumbent MP, was lacked of adequate logistics to facilitate effective campaign.
He stated that when he wins the seat, his major focus would be on how to develop the human resource base in the constituency, especially the youth and that he would empower them to establish small scale business associations.
The youth who thronged the EC office to support Mr. Boateng said, they were solidly behind him because he is the only marketable candidate to wrestle the seat.
