Mr Emmanuel Bedzra, National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary Candidate for the Ho-West Constituency on Sunday said the Constituency is targeting 45,000 votes for the Party in the 2016 general election.
He called for unity among the rank and file of the Party in the constituency to “deliver” the votes for a “sweet victory for NDC.”
Mr Bedzra who is the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for the Constituency was addressing a non-denominational thanksgiving service at Tsito, after winning the Constituency primary, weeks ago
President John Dramani Mahama got 33,506 votes in the 2012 presidential elections in the Constituency with Mr Bedzra, getting 32,623 votes.
Mr Bedzra said the 2012 results were good but must be better in 2016 with 10,000 and more votes.
He said the only challenge to achieving the target was disunity but was hopeful that the thanksgiving service would reconcile all for a massive NDC victory in 2016.
“After this thanksgiving service, we have only one team. Team NDC Ho-West and I know this team will deliver the votes,” Mr Bedzra said.
He asked for forgiveness from all contestants in the Constituency primary who might be offended by any member of his campaign team.
Mr Bedzra said he had also forgiven all those who peddled falsehoods about him and said he was prepared to work with all.
Speakers, during optional speeches underscored the need for the NDC to be united ahead of the 2016 elections and advised Mr Bedzra not to work with gossips.
They asked him to try and fulfill promises he made to the Constituency.
The event, which was characterised by singing and dancing, attracted traditional rulers from the district, some Members of Parliament (MP) and NDC Party loyalists.
