The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary Candidate for Dome-Kwabenya, Elikplim Akurugu, on Wednesday submitted her nomination forms at the Kwabenya branch of the Electoral Commission’s office to formally join the political race on December 7th.
The documents were received by the EC officials after endorsements of the papers by the EC signifying a successful presentation.
She was accompanied by some top NDC officials, constituency executives, a brass band, party supporters, and a massive crowd from all walks of life who invaded the streets of Kwabenya.
The NDC party supporters defied heavy rains on a very wet Wednesday morning jamming and dancing on the streets to throw their weight behind their beloved candidate.
It is on the back of this development that she has declared and clearly signaled a moment of ‘CHANGE’ with one goal seeking to snatch the seat from the ruling NPP and the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP), Hon. Lawyer Sarah Adwoa Safo.
She is seeking to institute SME loan schemes for market women; the establish a fire station; build an industrial park; support needy but brilliant pupils; advocate for the vulnerable, empower women through programs; Annual Constituency forum for Dome-Kwabenya residents; support Master craftsmen, youth enrollment into the National Apprenticeship and the Free TVET programs promised by John Mahama among several other socio-economic interventions.
