A former Deputy Minister for Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Madam Dzifa Abla Gomashie, has declared her intention to contest the National Democratic Congress’ Parliamentary primaries in the Ketu- South constituency of the Volta Region.
This was after she was accompanied by over a hundred delegates and supporters through the streets from her campaign office to the Party office to pick nomination form on Friday, July 12, 2019.
“Following consultations, I have taken a resolute decision to offer myself as a willing and able candidate for the Ketu South Parliamentary Seat on the ticket of the NDC. This is a divine decision and a divine decision that I am a woman, because women have not represented us in Parliament in constituencies along the coast of Southern Volta” she said in a statement.
Madam Gomashie pleaded with the delegates to choose her as the best woman for the job and promised to embrace gender development and affirmative action as critical requirements for societal advancement.
She believes her election to Parliament would inspire many young women and young people as she continued her human development mission.
The known children’s advocate and celebrated arts icon after vetting, is likely to face competition from seven other aspirants namely; Mr. Foga Nukunu, Mr. Joseph Kwasi Nyavi, Mr. Nicholas Worclachie Ezo, Mrs. Caroline Kudah-Parker, Mr. Joseph Kofi Kporha, Mr. Godson Bill Ocloo, and Mr. Sylvester Kafui Nyasorgbor, who have all picked nomination forms.
The incumbent and former Deputy Minister of finance, Mr. Fifi Fiavi Kwetey has decided not to contest the seat again.
