It was a procession not only to celebrate the day but to also honour the Member of Parliament for the Constituency, Alexander Kwamena Afenyo-Markin.
In an interview with the media, the MP explained the rationale behind the walk.
“We are in an election year and it is time to put ourselves together, unite and ensure victory in 2020, so we are taking advantage of this day to show how united we are and how we love one another” the MP stated.
When asked if it would be a done deal for him and the NPP in the 2020 elections looking at the large number of people in the procession, the Effutu MP had this to say;
“Politics requires hard work; you don’t cross the bridge until you get there. We have always worked hard, and we continue to work hard. I don’t underrate any opponent. I work hard for victory and I know that with God on our side no doubt at all that we are going to win” Afenyo-Markin emphasized.
He also said the Akufo-Addo administration has done so much for the people of Ghana and Ghanaians will never forget these good things that are happening, and accordingly reward the administration in the coming elections.
He used the occasion to remind Ghanaians that the NDC was in government for 8 years and it cannot be that the NPP being in office for 4 years, Ghanaians will compare and say, the party has not done better than the opposition NDC.
Given the opportunity, Ghanaians will see the true development that they have always desired and they should be reassured that with determination on the part of this government, Ghana will get there, the MP added.
Also participating in the procession were Captain Kwesi Eyi Acquah, Presiding Member of Effutu Municipal Assembly, Deputy Central Regional Youth Organiser, Chairman Kojo Halm, Supi Kofi Kwayera and other Constituency officers.
