Isaac Menlah, a procurement consultant based in the Western Region, has donated a vehicle to the Ellembelle branch of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the region in an effort to help boost the party’s campaign in the 2016 elections.
Presenting the Toyota Hilux to the party at a brief ceremony on Sunday at Esiama, Mr Menla noted that he was willing to contribute his quota to help capture power from the John Mahama led NDC administration.
Mr. Menlah, a native of Ellembelle, explained that he had discussions with the NPP parliamentary candidate for the area, Kwesi Bonzoh, who told him (Menlah) that the party lacked vehicles.
“So I decided to support. I believe we all have to sacrifice to ensure a resounding victory for Nana Addo and all the NPP parliamentary candidates in the November 7 general elections,” he stressed.
Menlah, who was optimistic NPP would win this year’s elections, remarked that “let’s in our little ways contribute to support the party as the general elections approach.”
“We can’t take chances this year. The country has suffered enough under this incompetent administration and the NPP campaign should start now.”
Receiving the vehicle on behalf of the Ellembelle constituency, the acting Western Regional Chairman of the NPP, Ben Kwaw thanked Mr Menlah for the kind gesture, stressing that the vehicle would go a long way to help the constituency embark on effective campaign.
“This vehicle will go a long way in helping us. It came at the right time as well. I wish to appeal to other sympathizers to emulate this kind gesture,” he added.
The acting Regional chairman of the NPP later handed over the keys of the vehicle to the constituency chairman of the party, Samuel Kenya.
Mr. Kenya remarked that the vehicle would help the party deliver its campaign messages to the electorate at the remote areas in the constituency.
He gave assurance that the vehicle would be put to good use to maximize votes for the party through campaigns, adding that he was indeed ready to serve the indigenes and the party at large.
Later in an interview, Kwesi Bonzoh, the NPP Parliamentary candidate for Ellembelle, expressed hope that the vehicle would help garner more votes for Nana Addo in the constituency.
He pointed out that the bad roads in most of the remote community made accessibility to those areas very difficult, coupled with the fact that the constituency did not have enough vehicles to carry out the party’s work.
He commended Mr. Menlah for honouring his promise to the party and appealed to other businessmen who hail from the area and want to see NPP win the general elections massively to also contribute their widow’s mite.
