The Ellembelle seat was initially occupied by the Convention People’s Party’s Freddie Blay, now acting chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
“It has become the stronghold of the NDC because it has kept faith not only with the people of Ellembelle but the people of Nzema,” he stated.
“If you travel from the Jomoro district, you will see that things are happening. They are just unimaginable. Just on a recent trip the president opened a cold store. Now we have asphalt in Half Assini and Elubo, asphalt in Axim; we are about to start another asphalt in Nkroful, and there is so much that is happening, so much that has happened.”
The MP added: “We’ve seen an improvement in educational scores in…our district and there is a lot of improvement. We are looking at clear indicators and that’s what I’m saying. Don’t take my word for it, come and check the data and see the numbers. …You will see the crowd and excitement especially with the youth, so, we are very excited and we believe that, clearly, [with] the work that has been done by President John Dramani Mahama in our area, the NDC is really going to win in this election and I’m very excited about it.”
