First-time contender for the Ayawaso West Wuogon Parliamentary seat, Mr. Clement Boadi, has said that his plan for the development of the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency is more geared toward that youth and thus, has advised them to be involved in active politics.
In his view, the fundamental way the youth can make a difference in the country is by participating in politics.
Speaking on our news analysis programme “Behind the Headlines”, Mr. Clement Boadi, who is running on the ticket of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG) debated that the youth were not seeing an improvement in their lives because of their non-participation in national politics.
“…nothing has changed for the youth, it is because they don’t want to get involved into politics that is why our lives have been not changed by politicians. So we should take the mantle and move in and be partakers of what is happening in Ghana in terms of politics. All youth should get involved” he said
Mr. Clement Boadi also stated that the former Member of Parliament for the constituency, the late Hon. Boakye Kyeremanteng Agyarko did fairly well in developing the area.
According to him, his decision to contest in the election is borne out of the numerous challenges the constituents were facing.
“…they [NPP] have done something but they have not done enough when it comes to the youth and that is where I have a problem that’s why I am stepping in because I can do better”
The Ayawaso West Wuogon seat became vacant following the death of the MP, Emmanuel Kyeremanteng Agyarko on November 21, 2018.
In the forth coming Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election, Clement Boadi will be contesting with the Progressive Peoples Party’s candidate William Doworkpor, Delali Kwasi Brempong of the National Democratic Congress and one of the widows of Emmanuel Kyeremateng Agyarko, Madam Lydia S. Alhassan who is running on the ticket of the ruling New Patriotic Party.
