“I can confidently state that we will defeat the NPP in the by-election even if they decide to share human parts and offer free visas to paradise. I can state with certainty that we have been questioning folks and communicating with them throughout the procedures from where I am. We have made ourselves available to hear their worries.

Basintale further emphasized the trust that Assin North residents have in the NDC’s track record, saying that the people have faith that the NDC will launch significant projects if given a fair chance.

They [the constituents] have heard our vision statement, and based on our past performance, they appear to have a lot of faith in what we are saying. They appear to think that if given a fair chance, we will improve on what we have done, Malik Basintale continued.

He reaffirmed that despite the numerous road projects being undertaken by the NPP government, the NDC will win the by-election.

“I can also declare with confidence that the Assin North residents are among the citizens of this country with whom I have had political contact and who have shown such discerningness in their issues, ideas, and opinions. Numerous bulldozers will be in use, and you will witness people laughing as they observe them.

They claim that you haven’t taken any action in this seat for six good years since a by-election is looming. He responded: “They think we are children or some headless chickens, excuse me, because you moved the same machines from Kumawu to Assin North.”

According to him, the electorate is worried that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo made a decision before the case was heard on their Quayson.

He claimed that “the voters are rather concerned” about the president’s decision to rule before the case was heard.

James Gyakye Quayson of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Charles Opoku of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), and Bernice Enyonam Sefenu of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG) are the three contenders for the position.

After Mr. Quayson’s victory in the 2020 parliamentary election was declared invalid, the Electoral Commission (EC) set the by-election for June 27.

The by-election will be conducted without incident, the police have said, thanks to the sufficient security measures put in place.
