By: Raphael Apetorgbor

The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Ledzokuku Krowor Municipal Assembly, (LEKMA) of Accra, Mr. Seth Badu Tawiah, has dismissed the insinuation that there was division among constituency executives in the area , describing it as part of a plot to blackmail the area as disunited. 

He was speaking to the Daily Express in an interview on Friday, about speculations that the Member of Parliament (MP) for Ledzokuku constituency, Mrs. Benita Sena Okity –Duah, Former MP, Mr. Nii Nortey Duah and Former MCE, Mr. Daniel Amartey are alleged to be embroiled in personality clashes which has led to polarization among the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC). 

Mrs. Sena Okity –Duah, who is aspiring as the MP for the constituency beat her three male contenders during the NDC parliamentary primaries in November last year thus, Former MP, Mr. Nii Nortey Duah, Former MCE, Mr. Daniel Amartey and Gilbert Amartey. 

Mr. Badu Tawiah, said the three stalwarts of the party alleged to be embroiled in personality clashes were good friends who have been campaigning assiduously to retain the NDC both at the constituency and Presidency. 

“There is no division among party factionalist in Ledzokuku constituency, if there is any confession, it only exists in people’s imagination, the Ledzokuku constituency caucus is far away from anything call division’ 

‘Nobody is fighting anybody, we are fighting for a common goal and that goal is to win the parliamentary and increase the margin between our opponents,” the MCE stated. 

Mr. Badu Tawiah was confident Mrs. Sena Okity –Duah is going to retain the seat for the governing NDC because of the tremendous developmental projects she had embarked upon in the constituency since she went to parliament in 2012. 

He downplayed the assertion that the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) parliamentary candidate, Dr Okoe Boye is going to defeat Sena Okity- Duah because she is not an indigene of the area.  

Mr. Badu Tawiah further advised electorate to desist from voting along tribal lines which he stated does not help in our democracy.
