In a statement to the people of Jomoro, whom she had served for the last four years, Ms Nkrumah who is also the chairperson of the Convention People’s Party declared, “I want to thank you for the opportunity to serve you. Jomoro is my home and it will always be and I will continue to work with our people in diverse ways to continue to make a difference in their lives.”
She said she was happy that the people of Jomoro came out in their numbers to vote, yet the massive influx of voters with no affinity to the district and who had no stake in the development of the district was the main factor in determining the outcome of the elections.
“This is morally unacceptable. To organise and transport people to come and vote and leave the constituency cannot be right. As a nation, this development must be a matter of concern to all well-meaning citizens. We must all take responsibility for what goes on around us and not hesitate to stand up for what is right,” she pointed out.
She also acknowledged with appreciation the sacrifices her supporters made during the last four years and in the last campaign season.
“I will never abandon the people of Jomoro. I will pursue all the projects that I initiated, including the one-million-dollar Indian government grant to rehabilitate the Nzema Manle Vocational and Technical Training Centre at Bawia. I will also continue to provide any support that I can in the service of our people,” she assured.
“To all my supporters in the different political parties and to the CPP members and activists in Jomoro, I say stand firm and remain calm and focused in the face of provocation and be assured that I will do everything possible to ensure that no one suffers any intimidation on account of their political persuasion,” Samia Nkrumah concluded in the statement.
