For Immediate Release
Good afternoon to you all.
My attention has been drawn to a malicious allegation making rounds that i, Alexander Martey, the NPP Parliamentary candidate for Ningo prampram is personally meddling in the ongoing campaign at Bortiano Ngleshie Amanfrom (BNA) Constituency. I want to state categorically clear that this is false and a total fabrication concocted to tarnish my name and my hard earn reputation. My interest is to add more seats by wrestling the seat of Ningo-Prampram from the NDC and to maximize the gains of NPP. Our common enemy is not the NPP but the NDC. I have not in person or through any means had anything to do with the campaign in BNA whatsoever. There is so much on me to do in Ningo-Prampram to win that seat for NPP. I will like to caution those peddling this falsehood to desist from it or have me to content with in court for defamation of character.
Finally, I want to encourage those person(s) to focus on their primaries, because I am hundred percent focused on mine (Ningo Prampram). My intention is to capture the Ningo Prampram Constituency Seat, as the next Member of Parliament and impact positively in the lives of the people. That is my main aim and focus and not to meddle in the affairs that would neither help nor enhance my chances in winning the upcoming election.
….. Signed…. Alexander L. Martey NPP Parliamentary Candidate Ningo-Prampram
