NDC Primaries: Kojo Jones concedes defeat, accepts verdict of Keta delegates
Businessman, Dr Emmanuel Kojo Jones-Mensah says he is satisfied with the verdict of NDC delegates in the Keta constituency.
This was contained in a release from his communications team and signed by Livingstone Pay-Charlie after the incumbent MP Kwame Dzidzorli Gakpe was declared the winner.
According to the release, in the spirit of togetherness and love for both the constituency and the NDC, Kojo Jones, as he is popularly known, congratulated the retained MP as NDC’s parliamentary candidate for the 2024 elections.
“Team Jones-Mensah congratulates Hon Gakpey on this feat and other contenders who showed spirited fight and determination, especially, Enyonam Apetorgbor for showing commitment to providing solutions to problems and championing the women’s empowerment agenda. The delegates have decided and we must respect this outcome of democracy,” parts of the statement read.
The team indicated that the post of parliamentary candidate of the NDC and for that matter leader of Keta is very demanding and as such requires somebody with a demonstrable record of achievement, personal development and capacity.
”We want to state that the record of Dr Jones-Mensah in Keta Constituency is rock solid as to effecting real change in the lives of the citizenry. The construction of the Hatorgodo-Lawoshime Bridge, the water plant at Anyako Kpota, the reshaping of roads in Havedzi and Abutiakope, and the extension of water to Horvi, Dzelukope and Tettevikope signal a momentous epoch in Keta.”
“These are unprecedented projects. Making meaningful impacts in the lives of farmers and fishermen with inputs such as fertilizer, weedicides, Knapsack sprayer, fishing nets and training workshops are record-breaking interventions.”
Kojo Jones’ team noted that he is committed to the completion of the Hatorgodo-Lawoshime Bridge which he views as a service to humanity.
“What is important is that Dr Jones-Mensah is ‘at home and enjoying the very best of it.’ Activities of KJM Foundation, the charity wing of the Empire Domus Group continue unabated in service to humanity, God and country,” they stated.
They noted that it is the strongest contention of Team Jones-Mensah that posterity will be the best judge as to whether they delivered on concrete projects to solve teething local problems.
The team added that developments tackled in Keta by Dr Jones-Mensah will make the local 2024 campaign against the NPP easy as they will qualify as NDC legacy projects.
“We are elated that our contributions will count in rescuing power from the NPP and I want to take this opportunity to thank you all team members, supporters and everyone for the dedication and contribution to the project of building Keta.”
“I want to take this opportunity to thank all team members, loved ones, supporters and sympathizers for their dedication and contribution to this project to build Keta,” Kojo Jones’ team added.
They appealed to the NDC rank and file in Keta to pursue unity and cohesion towards the 2024 battle adding that, Kojo Jones is still on the move in Keta and will be actively contributing to the victory of the party’s flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama.
The team also thanked the 265 delegates who voted for and believed in Kojo Jones.
