The New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate for Ashaiman, Alhaji Labarang Yakubu Barry has said he is certain of winning at least 65 per cent of votes cast in the area in the December 7 polls.

Speaking to the media after presenting his nomination to the Electoral Commission (EC), he said he was convinced of victory due to the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) poor performance in government.

According to him, although recent political trends show the Ashaiman constituency was a stronghold of the NDC, most of the electorates in the area will vote for the NPP in this year’s elections due to the untold economic hardship the governing NDC has led the country into.

He lamented that under the NDC government, about 65 per cent of the people in Ashaiman were unemployed.

He also said the area had bad roads and lacked basic infrastructure and had high incident of crime.

He said such difficulties and challenges would help the NPP wrestle the seat from the NDC.

Alhaji Barry appealed to the residents to vote massively for the NPP to bring positive change to the area and the country as a whole.

He further called on supporters of the party to intensity their campaigns in the area to guarantee the party’s victory.
