THE EXECUTIVE Secretary of the National Accreditation Board (NAB),
Dr. Kingsley Nyarko, is back on the political scene to contest the upcoming
parliamentary primaries of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for the Kwadaso
Constituency in Kumasi, Ashanti Region.
With a slogan: “K4K (Kingsley for Kwadaso)”, the soft-spoken NAB boss
is promising to provide ‘quality leadership’ for the constituency as he mounts
a political comeback for the slot he lost four years ago.
He told DAILY GUIDE after filing his nomination papers that people from
every nook and cranny of the constituency had jumped on board to push him to
become the NPP candidate because “they are fed up with the incumbent Member of Parliament
and would like to see a genuine change.”
“The massive following you have seen today shows the extent of love
the people of Kwadaso, including delegates, have for me and my candidacy,” he
noted and pledged to work hard to secure the party’s slot.
Dr. Nyarko, who plans to run a campaign devoid of insults and
personal attacks, formally confirmed his candidacy after three
hours of funfair with his supporters in the constituency. He said he would campaign
on a platform of ‘dialogue-driven development’ for the constituency and show of
respect to party leaders and constituents.
He was hopeful the delegates would do him good by endorsing him this
time round, having sufficiently earned their trust and confidence with his work
for the constituency, party and government.
