The National Democratic Congress (NDC), has expressed confidence in winning the Assin North by-election, which takes place today, June 27.
Speaking to reporters, the Deputy National Communications Officer of NDC, Malik Basintale, stressed that they have a higher chance of winning the seat even if the New Patriotic Party (NPP) should promise free visas to heaven to the constituents of Assin North.
According to him, the NDC is unmoved about the sharing of goodies and monies by the NPP to voters in the area.
“I can confidently say that even if the NPP decides to share human parts and free visas to heaven, we will defeat them in the by-election. I can confidently say that from where I am, we have been interrogating people, and interacting with them throughout the processes. We have availed ourselves to listen to their concerns. What we are able to solve we have solved, what we are able to improve upon we have done that,” the Deputy National Communications Officer of NDC said.
Basintale also highlighted the confidence Assin North constituents have in the record of the NDC, adding that the constituents also believe that they will embark on massive projects if given a fair opportunity.
“We have shared our vision statement with the constituents and comparing it with our track record, they seem to have a lot of confidence in what we are telling them. They seem to believe what we have done, if we are given a fair opportunity, we will improve upon it,” Malik Basintale added.
He reiterated that the NDC will win the by-election despite the number of road projects being carried out by the NPP government.
“I can also confidently say that one of the people in this country that I have interacted with politically, that have been so discerning in their concerns in their views and opinions are the people of Assin North. You will see lots of bulldozers working and the people look at them and laugh.
“They say for 6 good years, you haven’t done anything in this constituency, all because there’s a pending by-election, you have moved the same machines from Kumawu to Assin North, only to deceive us, and they think we are kids, or some headless chickens, excuse me to say,” he said.
