Before the filling of his nomination form on Friday, Peter Ayinbisa participated in a public forum organized by A1 radio a Bolgatanga based radio station. The initiative dubbed ‘PEOPLE’S FORUM’ a programme designed to engage constituents together with their aspiring parliamentary candidates as a way of letting those aspiring to know issues affecting the people in case they were given the opportunity serve them in parliament .
The Programme was fully monitored by Apexnewsgh.com, where the parliamentary candidates for PPP, GUM and NPP fully participated, but unfortunately, the candidate of the opposition NDC who equally given an invitation such as other candidates, told our source that he will not be part of the programme because he will be moving back to Accra as parliament has resumed.
But unfortunately, just a minute after the engagement with the other parliamentary candidates, the NDC candidate Edward Bawa was seen near the Bongo Rural bank with some of his supporters, just fews steps to the lorry park where the PEOPLE’S FORUM event took place. However, his absence could not prevent the PEOPLE’S FORUM which ended very successful and interesting with massive participation of citizens of Bongo.
Meanwhile, Ayinbisa visited the paramount Chief of the Bongo Traditional area Bon Naaba Salifu Atamale Lemyarum to officially informed him about his readiness to proceed with the filling process to the Electoral Commission(EC)
“From now onwards, we are going to intensify our campaigns, we are not going to relent, we are not going to relax, we will continue to campaign, move from village to village, community to community, area to area and house to house until we are declared winners of the Bongo Constituency elections.
From here as you can see, we are entering the Zorko community particularly Kadare where we are going to continue explaining government policies and telling them they need to maintain Nana Akufo Addo giving him 4 more years to continue his good works and giving me to the opportunity to serve the people of Bongo as their Member of Parliament.The Bongo people obviously will love to retain Nana Addo for the coming elections. What we are telling the electorate to do now, is to change the direction of the parliamentary votes, because since 1992, has controlled and enjoyed this constituency as they continue to get the majority votes to represent them. But since 1992, we have had various people representing us such as Gaaga, Albert Abongo, Alangre now to Edward Bawa.
All of them have contributed to some level of development in the constituency, they have done their part, and they are no more interested in the elections but now, it is my senior brother Bawa who is in the race.What am telling the electorate is that, they should put us together; they should look at our records, look at the NDCs record and look at the NPPs record.
They should look at the NPPs records in their first 4 years in government and look at the NDCs records their first 4 years in government, compare the record sector by sector.
Let’s look at Education, what do they do? Let’s look at health what do they do, let’s look at good governance, what do they do, let’s look at agriculture, what do they do? So when we compare the two parties, what we have done for the people of Bongo, then, people of Bongo will be in a better position to judge which party should retain power and which parliamentary candidate should be elected.
By the time this assessment is done, nobody will choose any other political party than the New Patriotic Party (NPP).”
However, the District Chief Executive who doubles as the parliamentary candidate for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Bongo District, used the opportunity to admonish officials of the Electoral Commission (EC) to do their works without taking sides,
because according to him, the constitution of the Republic of Ghana does not allow EC officials to participate in active politics.
“Avoid posting partisan thing on social media, it is not allowed.” He added
