Mr Richmond Larweh Mensah, Convention Peoples Party (CPP) parliamentary candidate for Tema East, has advised electorates to desist from voting for colours.

Mr Mensah, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency, said instead of analysing issues and policies of aspirants, voters only voted based on the colours of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and National Democratic Congress (NDC).

"Ghanaians must change their attitudes of looking at colours, they must listen and look at the candidates before voting," the 55 years old photographer stressed.

He observed that over the years, voters in Tema East had voted consistently for the NPP but the constituency was deteriorating.

He blamed the Member of Parliament for not putting the Tema Metropolitan Assembly (TMA) on its toes leading to indiscriminate sitting of containers, kiosks, and wooden structures in the area.

Mr Mensah said because of the inactivity of the MP, the TMA had lost grip of the situation and promised to push the Assembly to restore the constituency to its former glory and beauty.

The CPP candidate said a planned city like Tema was now engulfed in filth, sewer problems, flooding and reeled on a high risk of an outbreak of diseases.

He said Tema was not planned to have open markets which had people selling on the streets and bare ground and therefore promised to ensure the establishment of food distribution centres which would be properly regulated to clear traders off the streets and provide residents with quality healthy food items.

According to him, residents in his constituency were currently not happy as they lacked proper toilet facilities, water, accommodation and jobs.

He also gave the assurance that fisher folks who were currently idling around, would be either supported to repair their canoes or would be provided with trawlers.

The CPP candidate therefore called on the electorate to massively vote for him to enable him obtain his target of 85 per cent win of the votes cast on December 7.

Mr Mensah, who is married with two children had been a card bearing member of the CPP for 15 years and was currently the party’s Tema East constituency chairman.

He is contesting the seat with the incumbent MP, Mr Daniel Nii Kwatei Titus Glover, of the NPP, former Tema mayor, Mr Kempes Robert Papa Nii Ofosuware of the NDC and an independent candidate, Mr Theophilus Nii Ankamah Densu-Tetteh.
