Progressive People’s Party (PPP) Parliamentary candidate for Klottey Korley, Eva Lokko says she is prepared to fight tooth and nail to win the Korle Klottey seat for her party.

The former Director of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) said that she is fully prepared to contest the seat which has become one of the hottest in the country. “It’s about competition, I wasn’t in the race when they were running, they have to deal with me, I don’t have to deal with them…I don’t care about their money, I am giving them a run for Korle Klottey,” she said in response to the question of whether she feels terrified by the ‘heavy weights’ running for the position.

The Engineer said this when she paid a courtesy call on the Adabraka Traditional Council to introduce herself to the chiefs.

Korle Klottey is considered as one of the seats which would be keenly contested in the November polls following the internal wrangling within the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

While the NPP had to resort to a re-run of polls after a protracted court case between Lawyer Philip Addison and Nii Noi Nortey, the NDC is yet to settle on one candidate to run for the seat.

Incumbent MP, Nii Armah Ashietey has sued elected candidate, Ezenator Rawlings who he believes was not qualified to have contested the primary of the NDC.

The court is yet to come out with a judgment on that case. Nii Noi after losing the re-run has declared his intention to contest as an independent candidate.

Eva Lokko who was the running mate to Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, the PPP Presidential Candidate in the 2012 elections thinks she possesses the best of strategies to win the keenly contested constituency.

“Whether they are fighting here or not, there is a lot of work to be done…I am only interested in the development of the constituency and nothing else,” she said.
