Alfred Kumi, an ardent member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) based in Adenta, has formally made clear his intentions to contest in the upcoming NPP parliamentary primaries of the Adenta Constituency, and further win the seat in the 2020 general elections.
According to Mr. Kumi, who was speaking in an exclusive interview with ModernGhana, after the news team had gotten wind of his decision to contest, he believes the time has come for him to serve Adenta having spent most of his life in the constituency.
He acknowledged that as one of the biggest constituencies in Ghana, Adenta has developed at a very fast pace but noted that there are still some more issues begging to be fixed.
He is highly admired in the constituency due to his amiable, submissive, humble and easily accessible nature.
In private life, Mr. Kumi is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Vision Lob, as well as the Managing Director of Internship Hub.
By virtue of his pedigree, Mr. Kumi believes strongly that he would make a complete and perfect legislator.
He revealed that his NPP activism dates back to his senior high school days as well as his days at the University of Ghana, where he was very active and influential within the NPP TESCON.
Mr. Kumi is seeking to snatch the seat from the incumbent – Lawyer Yaw Buabeng Asamoah.
“Officially, I have been a member of the NPP for four years now but growing up, my mother was a die-hard NPP so it is in the blood. I was inspired and have grown to love the NPP. I believe in the principles and the capitalism ideologies of the NPP”, he told ModernGhana news team.
Mr. Kumi said he has a vision to develop not only Ghana but also the NPP in order to make it an attractive political party.
