A Ghanaian chartered accountant who is aspiring to be the parliamentary candidate in the upcoming NPP primaries is confident of stealing the Ledzokuku Constituency seat from the incumbent NDC, Mr. Benjamin Narteh Ayiku, if given the shot to lead the party.
The former 2nd vice chairman of the constituency believes he has what it takes to bridge the political divide and win the seat in the 2024 elections and has urged delegates to support him.
Bridging the political divide between young people and political parties necessitates creative strategies that recognize the valid concerns of young people, he explained.
Mr. Clifford says that because it is necessary for political parties to meet young people where they are, he would do so in order to better understand the trends and identify critical ideas for strengthening connections between young people and the party.
In an interview with Daily Searchlight/MyGhanaMedia.com after picking up and submitting the nomination form at the party’s office, Clifford Martey Korley told the gathering that his confidence to pick up nomination forms was inspired by the party’s rank and file in the constituency.
He believes that the party faithful have confidence in and trust him.
He also assures that he will bring in accountable leadership to guarantee their (constituents) concerns are heard in parliament.
Clifford Martey Korley and his party supporters walked through the streets of Teshie-Nungua to demonstrate their intentions and bring more people closer to his cause for victory.
The supporters were all dressed in party colors, confident that their chosen aspirant would make a significant impact and finally win the primary.
They also sang victory and party songs, encouraging the contenders to win and represent them in the parliamentary elections.
