An aspiring National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for the Anlo Constituency, Mr Wonder Victor Kutor, is promising to embark on an education  campaign that will promote the enrolment of all children of schools age in schools in the constituency.

He said getting all those who had dropped out of school back to the classroom would also be a major constituency programme he would pursue to position the constituents for the job market.

Mr Kutor, who is vying for the NDC parliamentary ticket with the incumbent Clement Kofi Humado, told the Daily Graphic that he believed providing education to the constituents was paramount to positioning them for the job market.

 

A third candidate, Mr Sylvester Tonyevah, who is the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Keta, has withdrawn his candidature, leaving Mr Kutor and Mr Humado to vie for the seat which is considered  safe for the NDC.

“In respect of education I started supporting the schools within Anlo with free books and computers since 2014 under my Back to School campaign,” he said.

Mr Kutor, who is the immediate past Deputy Constituency Secretary of the NDC for the Anlo Constituency, said he trusted the delegates to elect him as their parliamentary candidate since he had personally promoted and supported education and the empowerment of the people even as an individual.

“Electing me as the parliamentary candidate of the NDC and the possible Member of Parliament (MP) in 2016 will only inure more to their benefit,” he said.

He said the constituency abounded in natural resources, including oil and tourist attractions, and indicated that it was important  the constituents acquired education so as to grab  job opportunities available.

Mr Kutor ,who has worked  at the Ministry of Energy and Petroleum as a research assistant, will not be a pushover after  gaining  some considerable experience in the public sector.

Having worked as a former branch organiser and deputy constituency secretary for the Anlo Constituency, Mr Kutor regards himself as a grass-roots man.

“I believe with this background, I will unseat the incumbent following the expansion of the electoral college which  downplays  any monetary influences  and gives advantage to contestants who are popular and appeal  to the masses,” he said.
