Janet Emefa Abro Adibo, the District Chief Executive Officer (DCE) for the Guan District in the Oti Region, has formally submitted her candidacy to run in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary primary for the Guan seat, which has not yet been established.
She urged party members and delegates to support her as she handed her nomination form to the party executives at the party headquarters in Likpe Mate.
After submitting her application, she spoke with Adom News and expressed optimism that her record as DCE and their support might enable the party both make history and defeat National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate Fred Agbanyo.
Throughout the parliamentary primaries, she vowed to run a wholesome and unified campaign in an effort to forge a solid front in the approaching 2024 election.
The DCE’s catchphrase, “Mother for All,” which emphasizes her commitment to all delegates and people in the constituency, is well recognized.
She is notable for being the first woman to run for the NPP Parliamentary Primary in the Constituency since the Guan District was established in 2021.
As she accepted her nomination, John Newton Kumi, the constituency secretary, advised all candidates to abstain from using derogatory or insulting words throughout the primary process.
He emphasized how crucial it was to preserve the party’s current state of harmony and peace.
Additionally, Daniel Addo, the interim constituency chairman, counseled candidates to conduct their campaigns with decorum because the goal of the approaching general election is to make history.
He stated the Guan district was established by the NPP administration and is currently experiencing infrastructural development, therefore it is important to prevent any animosity that might jeopardize their goal.
She will have opposition from two other candidates as the contest intensifies as they compete for slots in the upcoming primary.
