Dr. Bernard Okoe Boye, the Member of Parliament for Ledzokuku constituency in the Greater Accra Region, has been peacefully acclaimed as their parliamentary candidate for the 2020 general election.

During the Acclamation Ceremony held at Teshie in the Greater Accra Region, on June 20, 2020, Dr. Okoe Boye expressed his appreciation to the Almighty God for the peace and tranquility which has prevailed throughout the ceremony and was sure that same atmosphere would transcend into the December General Elections.

He disclosed that the delegates, council of elders, and patrons of the party had worked tirelessly to make the party in the constituency grow stronger and had imposed great confidence in him due to his good relationship with them as well as his leadership qualities.

He explained that the constituency was faced with some major challenges before his election to parliament in 2016, which included construction of the LEKMA road and the Teshie Landing Beach Project.

 Dr. Okoe Boye continued that, the road project was about 85 per cent completed and works on the Landing Beach project was ongoing sturdily. He said, "This has made party members and fisherfolks from the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC)  to have pledged their support for me in the coming elections."

"Your works will speak for you better than your campaign message," he continued.

The party chairman for the Ledzokuku constituency, Chief Joshua McAdjei, said that those who had the intention to contest Dr. Okoe Boye earlier latter on changed their minds because there was no need to waste money, resources and time knowing the abilities of their candidate.

He said, "I am convinced that Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo, Flag bearer of the party, and Dr. Okoe Boye will win massively in the constituency in the general elections due to their works."

According to him, the trend was changing, and NPP in Ledzokuku would not be considered as a swing seat any longer because of the good works of their seating Member of Parliament and previous leaders of the party in the area.

Chief Joshua called on members of the party not to relent even though they had the best candidate but work harder to meet their 75 per cent vote target in the general elections.

The Electoral Officer of Ledzokuku Constituency, Mr. Kwarteng Gyamfi, presented Dr. Bernard Okoe Boye as the parliamentary candidate for the Ledzokuku Constituency in the December general elections.
