The presidential candidate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo Addo, has urged the people of the Nadowli-Kaleo constituency in the Upper West Region to vote out their incumbent Member of Parliament, Alban Bagbin.

According to Nana Addo, Alban Bagbin, who is the current Majority Leader, had been in parliament for too long and had to be replaced.

Addressing residents of the constituency as part of his campaign in the Upper West Region, Nana Addo said the people of Nadowli-Kaleo must vote for the NPP’s 26-year old candidate, Elvis Bortaa, to replace Bagbin.

“The Member of Parliament, Majority Leader Alban Bagbin, was in parliament when I went to parliament in 1997. He had already served one term. I left parliament in the year 2008 and Bagbin my good friend is still in parliament. I think that we will all do Alban Bagbin a good favour if we retire him so that he can go and have a good retirement. Let’s work on that and retire him so he can go and have a rest so we push this young man Elvis Bortaa to come in his place,” he added.

Mr Bagbin has held the seat since 1992.

Meanwhile, the NPP’s Elvis Bortaa had earlier expressed optimism of winning the seat come December 7.

“I am competent and well-equipped with what it takes to lead the people. All it takes is for you to understand the suffering of the people and to have adequate knowledge of what options you need to make available to salvage the situation,” he explained.

“I would not want to admit that I am too young; the bottom line is that I am bringing to finality the long reign of Alban S.K. Bagbin, whose tenure of office in my estimation has not yielded anything good for the good people of Nadowli,” the 26-year-old added.
