The Deputy Chief of Staff at the Presidency, Mr Jonny Osei Kofi, who is contesting the Oforikrom parliamentary seat on the ticket of the NDC has stated that he would cancel the 19,000 difference in the last election and win the seat.

He said the dynamics had changed, especially with the NPP putting up a new candidate while new people had registered as voters culminating in the changing of the demography of the area and sealed with the unprecedented development projects that was happening in the constituency under the leadership of President John Mahama.

Addressing a section of the media at the campuses of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) which forms part of the constituency, he expressed confidence that the party would spring surprises.

In the 2012 elections, the NPP candidate had 40,704 of the votes representing 63.07 per cent while the NDC candidate polled 21,572, representing 33. 43 per cent.

Mr Kofi who was a member of the Catholic Graduate Students who started developing the area in the 1970s and 1980s, and have been helping in addressing the concerns of the area said when he was voted into power, the development would receive a greater push.

He said his philosophy had always been to assist the people themselves to suggest how best to address their problems and be supported to ensure that their lives were bettered.
