The Member of Parliament for the Adenta Kojo Adu Asare has said there is no doubt about he retaining his seat in the 2012 parliamentary elections which promises to be keenly contested in that constituency.

According to him, his accomplishments both in the constituency and parliament put him in pole position as the obvious choice for the electorates in the 2012 elections.

Hon. Adu Asare if retained as the NDC’s Parliamentary candidate for Adenta will come face to face with the NPP’s Parliamentary candidate for the area, Frances Assiam who is an experienced politician who many believe is a threat to the incumbent MP and likely to topple him.

However speaking on Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana show, Hon. Kojo Adu –Asare stated that he is unperturbed by the election of Francis Assiam to contest him as nobody no matter how formidable that person is, stands the chance of winning against the NDC in the Adenta constituency.

“What is more difficult than an opposition candidate upstaging an incumbent MP with all the incumbency advantages that there is? If I could do that easily why can’t I retain me seat’’ he asked?

He said the Mills administration had done extremely well in its two years in office than the NPP’s four years in the Adenta constituency, adding that the several projects on going in the area and other parts of the country, makes it impossible for either Frances Assiam to annex his seat.

Hon. Adu-Asare related the government’s several programmes which include the improvement of the water situation in the municipality though some technical problems are being solved.
