Independent Parliamentary candidate, Bernard Oduro Takyi (BOT) has said, the constituents of Sunyani West need a developmental politician who can drive the development of the constituency.
According to him, the constituency over the years have had an electoral leader who have failed to deliver on his mandate.
The former Presiding member of the Sunyani West Assembly was speaking to Akua Nyarko Abronoma, host of Dinpa Anopa Bosuo show on Thursday September 17,2020.
“I’ve been a leader since secondary school time so being a servant is part of me. I am not into politics to amass wealth for myself. I have been an Assembly Member and Presiding member in the constituency. What I’ve realized is that, Sunyani West constituency lack real leadership.”
”There are two kinds of leadership, that is the electoral leader and a developmental leader. The electoral leader waits for election to draw near before he begins to entice the voters with money. I am a developmental politician. I was the only Presiding member who had a manifesto. I was also able to achieve 70 to 80% of my vision for the people in my electoral area.”
The 2020 Parliamentary election will be fiercely contested between the incumbent NPP MP and Minister for Employment and Labour Relations, Hon. Ignatius Baffour Awuah, the Independent Candidate, Bernard Oduro Takyi and the NDC’s Millicent Amankwaa Yeboah on 7th December,2020.
