The incumbent Member of Parliament for Nkawkaw in the Kwahu West Municipality, Eric Kwakye Darfour is confident of winning the primaries to again stand as the parliamentary candidate on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party for the area.

Nominations are opened until the 30th of this month, and Hon. Darfour who has already picked his form is expecting challenges from some other interested members of the party in the constituency.

According to him, though he cannot point to anyone yet, there is speculation of a woman who has also declared her intention to contest the primaries.

Mr. Darfour emerged victorious to become the legislature of the Nkawkaw Constituency in 2012 and is hoping to be retained by delegates for the second time.

He told Ghanamps.gov.gh that as a legislature he has discharged his responsibilities to his constituents to the best of his ability including creating a cordial relationship with his people. He said he visits his constituency almost every weekend to take part in very important activities.

The MP also added that he helped build strong structures in the party in the constituency that will work to consolidate the dominance of the party in the constituency.

Hon. Darfour also noted that his interventions in improving social amenities including schools, clinics at Accra Town known as Town Council Clinic, completion of Daateng Clinic started way back in 1997, and a host of other interventions to farmers including the donation of 60 spraying machines for distribution to all cocoa growing communities in support of their cocoa spraying exercise were good enough to favour him a second chance.

He is currently touring polling stations to gunner support for his second term bid.
