Parliamentary aspirant for the Okaikoi Central constituency, Baba Sadiq Abdulai Abu, popularly known as Baba Sadiq, has revealed that he is the best candidate the National Democratic Congress (NDC) needs to reclaim the seat from the incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP, Patrick Yaw Boamah, who has won for three consecutive times.
According to Baba Sadiq, he is the best man among the other three contestants in the race to bring victory to the NDC in Okaikoi Central, as he resonates well with the various voting blocs in the constituency.
The former 3 Media Networks chief executive officer believes that there are several ethnic blocs in the constituency, and it takes a person who knows how to relate well to all the groups to win the election for the NDC.
“There are certain things that make me a refreshingly different candidate. I resonate with the four voting blocs in the constituency, particularly for the NDC. The Akan voting bloc has been one of the hard-to-reach blocs for the NDC in the constituency, but I resonate very well with it”.
“We’ve got the Akan bloc, the Ga-Adangbe bloc, the Ewe bloc, and the Muslim-Zongo-Northern bloc, and for the NDC to win in Okaikoi Central, it will need a candidate that resonates with these four blocs,” he said.
He added: “You will also need a candidate that understands the needs of the people and is innovative enough to create ideas that can solve the people’s problems, and that is who I am.”
“I cannot specifically mention some of our strategies, but all the NDC needs is a Baba Sadiq in the race against Patrick Boamah to win the constituency,” he noted in an interview monitored by The Ghana Report on Citi FM.
Meanwhile, the NDC has set Saturday, May 13, 2023, as the date to hold its presidential and parliamentary primaries to elect a flagbearer and parliamentary candidates for the 2024 elections.
