Courage Makafui Nunekpeku picks the number 1 slot after successful vetting to contest Tema Central Constituency NDC Primaries
Business consummate, Courage Makafui Nunekpeku, has chosen the number 1 slot on the ballot to contest the parliamentary primaries of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Tema Central Constituency on May 13.
This inches him closer to his desire to pick the NDC ticket at the Tema Central Constituency to break the New Patriotic Party (NPP) dominance since the creation of the constituency in 2012.
His contenders are Ebi Bright and Carl Owuompesika who are No. 2 and No. 3 on the ballot respectively.
Arguably the frontrunner for the May 13 primaries, Courage’s campaign runs on a Four-Core-Point-Agenda, thus,
1. Unifying for victory 2024
2. Welfare Scheme for members
3. Mobilization of resources, and
4. Creation of job opportunities
Being a unifier, Mr. Nunekpeku intends to unite the front of the party for victory. Even though he has a solid plan backed by data to win the seat, he believes that this can only be achieved with a united front.
Also, he has made a firm pledge to support each of the 12 wards in the constituency with a seed money of GH₵3,000.00 towards the establishment of welfare scheme for members. Indeed, he has started redeeming this pledge by making a donation of GH₵3,000.00 and other items to Black Cat Ward at the launch of their welfare scheme on 19th March, 2023. They received extra GH₵1,000.00 for being the first to launch the scheme and another GH₵1,000.00 for planning the launch very well. This has prompted the leadership of the other wards who have begun preparations towards the establishment of their own welfare schemes.
Being a candidate who has promised to run a branch-based campaign, resources mobilization is very dear to Courage. Therefore, he has promised to embark on a massive resource mobilization drive and furnish the various branches with same towards a dedicated branch-based campaign for victory in the general election in both the presidential and parliamentary contests.
On job creation, with the constituency being the industrial hub of the country, Courage has promised that aside creating job opportunities for the youth, he would liaise with the companies to offer employment opportunities to the constituents.
