HOPESON ADORYE, who is contesting for the National Organizer position in the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has stated that when elected, he would win more votes for the party from the remote areas of the country during the 2016 polls.
According to him, he was born and bred in a village and so he understands the thinking of the people living in the rural areas better than his competitors. “I can win those important votes for the NPP in 2016,” he assured.
“I was born and bred in a village so I am the right person who understands how the people living in those areas feel,” Adorye who was in Kumasi campaigning over the weekend, said.
He added that “the way the people living in the big cities approach and understand national issues is sharply different from the way their colleagues in the remote areas understand issues.”
For example, he said, food prices which are escalating every day – now a major problem for people living in the cities – might not be a problem for a person living in the village.
Adorye said on radio that getting access to food is usually not a problem for the rural folks, “so if you are campaigning and you go to the villages and campaign about food prices, you might fail as a politician.”
He said the rural folks think differently and it requires a person “who is part of them like me, to be able to highlight their problems and needs in order to convince them to vote for the NPP.”
Adorye, a firebrand politician, stated that when elected as NPP National Organiser, he would concentrate his campaign in the remote areas, assuring that he would work hard to ensure that the party garners colossal votes from the villages.
He expressed concern over what he termed ‘campaign of lies’ which was being used to tarnish his hard won image by some of his competitors, stating that he sees his competitors as members of a family and so he would not indulge in any vulgar language.
He stated that it was not true that he joined the NPP just in 2009, pointing out that he had been a loyal member of the party since his childhood days and would forever remain a loyal servant of it.
