Vice presidential candidate of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Eva Lokko has requested Chiefs in the Zongo Communities in the Ablekuma Central Constituency of the Greater Accra Region to endorse the party to ensure victory in the December polls.

Madam Lokko made the appeal on Monday when she led a delegation to call on the two Zongo Chiefs at Sarbon Zongo, a suburb of Accra, after her selection as running mate to Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, PPP flagbearer for the 2012 general elections.

The visit was to officially introduce the party to the Chiefs of the area and to solicit their support for the party’s victory in the 2012 elections and to introduce the PPP’s parliamentary aspirant for the constituency Ishmael Kabore to the chiefs and their elders.

Madam Lokko said the Ablekuma Central Constituency was her first point of call after she was officially named as the party’s running-mate on Wednesday, September 12, 2012 at a colourful ceremony at Osu in Accra.

She reminisced her childhood days at the Zongo community where she visited her Aunt on weekends, pledging her commitment ensure that speedy progress and development of Zongo communities when the PPP was given the mandate to govern.

“I challenged you to give PPP the opportunity to implement the Four-pillars and Ten-point agenda of transformation by voting massively for Dr Nduom and the Parliamentary aspirant for Ablekuma Central.

“A government under the PPP, would ensure abundance of jobs for the unemployed youth, and improve the sanitation, education and healthcare conditions in the country by offering a competent and incorruptible leadership’’, she said.

On their part, the two Sarbon Zongo Chiefs, Yahyah Hamisu Darko and Alhaji Suley Darko assured the PPP vice presidential candidate and her team of their support adding that the credentials, vision and competence of the PPP leadership are not moot.

They commended contributions made to media development by Eva Lokko as Director-General of Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) and the reforms Dr Nduom instituted as Minister of Public Sector Reforms, Energy, Economic Planning and Regional integration which has impacted positively on the progress of the country.

Madam Lokko and her team later inaugurated into office 21 polling station executives at five polling stations within the constituency.
