More than ten chiefs and queen mothers in the Atwima Nwabiagya North constituency have put their support behind Dickson Osei Assibey, a legal practitioner, consultant, and contractor running for the seat.
Along with the conventional party officials that invaded the party headquarters, there were pastors, party coordinators, delegates, constituency executives, and hundreds of party fans who joined the campaign to demonstrate their support for the lawyer who is also a contractor.
During the submission of his nomination forms, the seasoned legal practitioner and New Patriotic Party member was accompanied by these traditional chiefs, as well as several constituency officials and hundreds of party fans.
Osei Assibey, who is presently being challenged by one other candidate, aspires to succeed Benito Owusu-Bio, the incumbent MP and deputy lands minister. This follows his decision to leave the seat for others to fill in a recent interview with the media.
Most of these chiefs, pastors, party coordinators, and supporters rushed his personal office in Barekese before accompanying him to the party headquarters in Marban.
Some of these traditional chiefs, who talked to GhanaWeb in an interview, stated that they were rallying around the legal practitioner, philanthropist, and consultant, among others, because of his good track record and generous heart for development.
Speaking to the media after filing his nomination, the legal practitioner stated that the overwhelming support shown by chiefs, party coordinators, pastors, delegates, and countless followers was a clear sign of the public’ faith in him based on his good records.
He did, however, promise that he would make certain that the people would never be sorry for electing him as the Parliamentary candidate, and then as the Member of Parliament for the region.
The legal practitioner, known for his JEHDU campaign agenda, said that the J, which stands for job creation, was a very serious ambition of his.
He also indicated that the remaining letters, which stood for Education, Health, Development, and Unity, would be taken seriously if he was granted the mandate by his people.
He, on the other hand, urged the delegates to keep believing him, as they had previously done, and promised to help change the area in the shortest possible period.
Meanwhile, Raphael Osei-OWusu, the constituency secretary who accepted the nomination, affirmed that everything was well.
