The National Democratic Party (NDC) Member of Parliament (MP) for Odododiodioo Constituency, Mr Nii Tackie Kommey, has called on politicians to base their electioneering on issues and not lies and fabrications.

He said the 2012 General Election would not be won by aspirants whose supporters would be able to insult their political opponents but by those who would be able to present good policies and programme to the electorate.

Addressing NDC delegates at Sempe, Accra, on Friday, Mr Kommey asked the people not to be deceived by the lies being peddled against him by his political opponents that he had not lived up to expectation.

The MP said he had played a role in the provision of a new female ward, generator and a water tank for the Ussher clinic, and refurbishment of the maternity home at Palladium, donated GHC 5000 to support the construction of classrooms at Richard Akwei Memorial School.

Mr Kommey said he ensured the release of GH¢ 5,900 from the GETFund to support a project at Ayalolo cluster of schools and contributed funds towards the rehabilitation of the James Town Police Station

He asked the delegates to vote for him in the NDC primary for the constituency, to enable him retain the seat for the party.

The MP said he would place emphasis on the education of the youth in Information Communication Technical and technical and vocational training to make them marketable on the job market when he wins the 2012 parliamentary polls.

Mr Kommey said his performance in the constituency remained unquestionable making him the only competent aspirant for the Odododiodioo seat.

He said: “I have fulfilled all the promises I made to the Constituency and the rest are on the way”.

The MP appealed to the delegates to desist from any action that could disunite the party and said “the fight is not against Kommey but against the opposition NPP.”

“You must ensure that people at the grassroots, especially who have attained 18 years and above to register, when the Electoral Commission commences the new voters’ registration exercise so that they can vote for NDC”.
