Mr Edem Afeeva, NCCE Municipal Director for Ayawaso West Wuogon has stated that three political parties and an independent candidate were invited but NCCE was later informed that the candidates for the two major political parties had” other engagements”.
“We were just being told that they had engagements and though we were expecting them, unfortunately, they could not come to the programme,” he explained
He indicated that the debate formed part of the Commission’s effort to provide an opportunity for the electorates to know the background and policies of potential Members of Parliament (MPs) in the area.
Mr Afeeva entreated the public to tolerate each other’s political views to ensure a free and fair elections as the whole world would be looking at how Ghana would conduct the upcoming election.
The absence of the NPP and NDC parliamentary candidates gave the two other candidates Madam Gifty Nana Brima Botchway of the People’s National Convention (PNC) and Mr Richard Mawuli Amegatse, an independent candidate, ample time to outline their visions for the area.
