Naa Koshie Odamtten launches campaign at La-Dade Kotopon
Madam Gifty Naa Koshie Odamtten, a contractor, has stuck out her neck to contest as an independent parliamentary candidate in the La-Dade Kotopon Constituency in the Greater Accra Region.
She maintains that she has what it takes to unify the constituency as well as help to improve the lives of the people who, she claims, are suffering and need someone of her calibre to save them from hardship.
Launching her campaign at La, in Accra recently, Madam Odamtten who is popularly called “Mother for all” said that it was high time the constituents gave a woman the opportunity to also serve their interests in parliament.
She called on them (constituents) to vote massively for her in the December 7, 2020, elections.
“My people, I have been with you for a long time and know your problems in our constituency.
“And this is now the time for a dedicated, committed, hard working and a unifier like me to represent you in the august House (Parliament) to put your problems across and see how best they would be solved.
“I would sincerely use my share of the MPs Common Fund to develop this area and see also to it that poverty is drastically reduced,” she said.
Madam Odamtten assured that should she be voted for in the upcoming parliamentary elections as their representative, she would set up a Scholarship Committee in all the 10 Electoral Areas and see to it that students in tertiary institutions within the constituency be given support to complete their courses.
She commended all the former MPs for the respective role they had played in the constituency and stated that she would continue from where they stopped.
“Human resource development would be one of my priorities because without it, there can be no meaningful development in the area now and years to come.
“I, therefore, call on all of you to throw your weight behind me for my lofty dreams to come to pass through your support,” she said.
The independent candidate appealed to all her supporters not to engage in any violent activities that could breach the peace being enjoyed in the constituency.
“I urge you all to be law abiding people to ensure peaceful elections,” she advised.
