President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has appealed to voters in the Upper West Region to vote against honorable Abdul-Rashid Hassan Pelpuo, the National Democratic Congress’s (NDC) parliamentary candidate.
According to Akufo-Addo, the Legislator for Wa Central constituency, hon. Rashid Pelpuo has stayed far too long in parliament and must be voted out come December 7.
President Akufo-Addo made the appeal when he paid a courtesy call on Wa Naa Seidu Fuseini Pelpuo IV, the Overlord of the Waala Kingdom, as part of his two-day working visit to the Upper West Region.
“Alhaji Rashid Pelpuo is my friend but he has kept long in Parliament and we need to change him so that a female in the person of Hajia Humu can also represent you in Parliament.”
“Wa Naa I’m telling you, if he comes to visit you, tell him I said he has kept long in Parliament and should give way for someone else to represent the people.”
He, therefore, introduced Hajia Humu Awudu, the NPP Parliamentary Candidate for Wa Central, to the chiefs and asked for their support to enable her to wrest the seat from the NDC.
President Nana Addo noted that Hajia Humu had been working with them at the Party Headquarters and he could attest to her commitment to duty, adding that “if you vote for her to come to Parliament, we will work with her to bring the needed development to the Wa Central Constituency – I promise.”
