Amedorme Yao Sylvanus, one of two defeated aspirants who contested Franklin Fiifi Fiavi Kwetey in the December 29 Ketu South Constituency National Democratic Congress (NDC) primary, has held that he is not going apart from the party.
A day before the primary, Amedorme Sylvanus was in high spirits of whipping the incumbent Fiifi Kwetey by votes margin of 15,400; however, the delegates of the Constituency overwhelmingly voted the latter.
Sylvanus lost the election with 1,375 valid votes with the outgoing Minister for Food and Agriculture polling a commanding 14,610 votes to tear his two contenders apart. The third aspirant, Kwadugah Famous, garnered 637 valid votes.
Though his dream of becoming the 2016 parliamentary candidate for the ‘Akatamanso’ in the NDC electoral ‘World Bank’ could not be, Sylvanus Amedorme told radioxyzonline.com in a telephone interview that he is remaining in the party.
He said, “I belong to the NDC and I am going to work hard to retain the incumbent MP and President Mahama. I lost in a family contest and that was cool.”
He said the Constituency has a lot to be grateful for and as a former Constituency Youth Organiser, he said that “I am joining my party executives in the Volta Region’s ‘Operation One Million Gap for Mahama’ in the November 7 presidential election”.
Amedorme Sylvanus described his relationship with Franklin Fiifi Fiavi Kwetey as very cordial and one that is focused on a resounding victory for both the latter and President John Dramani Mahama.
In order to get the NDC in the Constituency increase its votes for Mahama in this year’s presidential election, Sylvanus Yao Amedorme said that the Ketu South NDC have closed all their ranks and parrying any falsehood the opposition will tag them with.
