Incumbent Nadowli-Kaleo MP files nomination to bid for a second term in office

The incumbent Member of Parliament for Nadowli-Kaleo Constituency, Mr Anthony M. Sumah, has acknowledged the many challenges that are affecting the development of the constituency.

He observed that the constituency was fraud with many challenges including furniture for schools, and poor access to healthcare services and potable water in some communities which he was working hard to address.

He, therefore, said he was working to ensure that with the remaining two years of his first term as MP, some of these challenges would be addressed.

Mr Sumah, who said this in Nadowli when he filed his nomination to contest the upcoming primaries of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), observed that if he is given the opportunity to lead the party in the constituency and subsequently elected the MP for the area he would continue to tackle those challenges.

Mr Sumah explained that his major aim in going into that election was to ensure that there was unity within the party after the primaries to work for the party to come to power in 2024.

“I want that after the election, we should not be wasting our time reconciling. After the primaries, we should go straight into action to win the election in 2024. Unity within the party is of importance to me”, he explained.

He said he was, therefore, not afraid of anyone coming to contest him in the primaries as it was the delegates that would decide who to lead and expressed confidence that the delegates would give him overwhelming endorsement in the primaries as they did in the 2019 primaries which saw him emerge winner against about seven other aspirants at the time.

Some supporters of the MP who spoke to the media after he filed the nomination, indicated that the number and calibre of people who supported the MP to file his nomination was an indication of his victory in the primaries.
