The Parliamentary Candidate on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the Oforikrom Constituency, Hon. Henry Osei Akoto has earlier today, filed his nominations to contest for the seat to represent the people of Oforikrom in parliament.
The Candidate who was a former Assembly Member for the Bomso Electoral Area filed his nomination at the Municipal office of the Electoral Commission at Oforikrom.
Hon. Henry Osei Akoto is likely to run against the incumbent Hon. Dr. Emmanuel Marfo who is yet to file his nominations as at the time of this report. There also rumors that the lone independent candidate in the race is contemplating filing his nominations with one day left to go.
The NDC parliamentary candidate is campaigning on the message of jobs for the youth, facelift of deplorable roads, drains and bridges which have been a thorn in the flesh of locals in the constituency. He is also promising the people an investment in human development through sports and education.
Hon. Henry Osei Akoto has touted his achievements as a former one-term assembly member for the Bomso electoral area and a government appointee at the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) as unprecedented and has urged his constituents to vote for him to bring the same spirit to develop the constituency which he said has been taken for granted by the New Patriotic Party for the past 16 years.
