SEFWI WIAWSO CONSTITUENCY
A PETITION PURSUANT TO OUR UNANIMITY FOR THE ENDORSEMENT OF THE CADIDATURE OF DR.KWAKU AFRIYIE,MP FOR SEFWI WIAWSO CONSTITUENCY.
The New Patriotic Party is known to be a party that rewards hard working members. It is on this accord that, we the electoral area coordinators in the various polling stations in our constituency have come together in a solemn declaration of our unflinching support and endorsement of the Hon.Dr Kwaku Afriyie as our parliamentary candidate ahead of the 2020 general election.
Hon.Dr Kwaku Afriyie through his sterling performance both in opposition and in government has won for the party innumerable historic achievement and for that matter, having won the Sefwi Wiawso parliamentary seat for the first time in history, we are of the view that, allowing him to serve another term would do a lot of good to the party.
It is worthy of note that, since he was elected as the member of parliament for Sefwi Wiawso Constituency, he has never relented in his effort to make the party attractive to all and sundry. We also understand that, there are numerous projects currently executed under his leadership which we think, he should be allowed to finish them and that can only be done when is allowed to continue his second bid.
We are therefore by this communique throwing our support to him to lead the party ahead of the upcoming general election. We are not in any way seeking to prevent any one who thinks he is qualified enough to contest Hon.Dr Kwaku Afriyie, what we are seeking to do is to Pledge our support to him to continue his good works for the betterment of the party at large.
One good term indeed deserves another. We are verily aware and believe same to be true that, this petition would be accepted and considered by those who matter.
Hon Dr. Kwaku Afriyie
Our surest bet for 2020
Yours in the service of God and country
