A former Regional Deputy Youth Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), who is also a lawyer by profession, Benedicta Lasi, has filed her nomination at the party office, Nuaso, in the Lower Manya Krobo constituency.
She was accompanied by gallant branch executives and party stalwarts who trusted in her vision and leadership.
She was received by the constituency secretary, Frederick Atenas Okoro, who, in his capacity, checked the details of her endorsements and gave satisfactory remarks.
She later addressed delegates and party supporters on her vision for Lower Manya and her commitment to party work, being former constituency executive member and former regional deputy youth organiser.
In her delivery, she assured delegates that, ‘Your change and replacement would serve the party right geared towards maximization of votes during 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections.’
She bemoaned the slim margin victory that occurred to the party during 2016 as unprecedented.
‘We have sold 19,000 votes to the NPP and that is an abysmal performance and a dip in our electoral fortunes,’ she said.
In her development agenda message towards building a constituency party office, she bemoaned that ‘since 1992, we have had MPs up till date and we are unable to build a constituency party office to accommodate all constituency executives and as well keep official documents and records for predecessor-ship.’
