Member of Parliament for Adentan Nii Ashie Moore has said he is confident of retaining his position as the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament to avoid Adentan becoming a “prostitute constituency”.
According to him, Adentan since 1997 has continued to change MPs during every election; a situation he contends adversely affects development of the area and wants that trend stopped.
The NDC on Thursday opened nominations for its Presidential and Parliamentary slots, with the party expected to holds its national congress in November to elect its Presidential Candidates and Members of Parliament.
Honourable Ashie Moore who picks his nomination forms today is so far having a competitor in the person of an ex- convict and former Minister of Youth and Sports under the erstwhile Kuffour Administration, Mallam Issah.
But speaking to Fiifi Banson on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.3 FM, Ashie Moore averred that NDC members in Adentan will do the constituency a lot of disservice by voting him out.
“Adentan cannot continue to have a new MP every four (4) years as has been the tradition. As a Marketing Consultant I know how difficult it is to market a new product. This is not the time to elect a new candidate, whenever the name Ashie Moore which is widely known is mentioned it brings mixed reaction, we can’t afford to always have a back bencher MP in Parliament. Adentan must not be termed as a prostitute constituency with our regular change of MPs”.
He noted that under his stewardship Adentan has seen a lot of development and it is crucial that he is retained to ensure further development of the area.
