A parliamentary candidate hopeful of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the Afajato South constituency, Kafui Augusta Takyi has told Citi News that she will go ahead and contest in the party’s upcoming primaries despite being confined in a wheelchair due to a medical condition.

Madam Takyi who was earlier reported to have suffered partial paralysis right after filing her nominations to contest in the primaries in the Afajato South constituency explained that she suffered the condition shortly after declaring her interest to contest for the slot.

“I can understand my supporters who said I got ill after filing my nominations. It is because the next time they saw me [after declaring my intention], I was paralysed but I got ill earlier after declaring my interest to contest for the slot again,” Madam Takyi clarified.

She said, “the doctors are doing their best but I trust my God will heal me and I will contest and win”.

“I am number one on the ballot and nothing is stopping me. I will contest and win whether I am in a wheelchair or not. The NDC’s votes in the constituency reduced from over 23,000 to about 19,000 in the 2016 elections and that is evident of the poor leadership of the incumbent MP and so somebody must come in to restore the confidence of the people in the party, ” Madam Kafui Takyi indicated.

Augusta Kafui Takyi is the only candidate out of all five who contested the Afajato South Parliamentary primaries in previous elections against the incumbent, Madam Angela Alorwu-Tay, who is still contesting in the upcoming primaries on August 24, 2019.
