The National Democratic Congress' (NDC) Parliamentary Candidate for Awutu Senya at the weekend brought the township of Bawjiase to a carnival stop.
In an emotional and passionate speech at the town centre, the highly respected legal brain said the achievements of the NDC of past and present were countless and appealed to voters not to forget the sacrifices made by former President John Evans Atta Mills ''We must not at any point forget that our work would be incomplete without victory in the December elections. This is not the time to take our eyes off our goal but rather time to go all out and intensify our efforts for victory for President Mahama, Hannah Tetteh and and the NDC''
In one of the biggest gatherings seen in the area in recent years, Hannah Tetteh sent out a clear and powerful message to the electorate by asking them to look all around them and give testimony to the good work of the Mills/Mahama adminstartion by retaining the NDC in power.
Supported by party faithfuls such as stalwarts Nana Sam Brew Butler, Allotey Jacobs, Daniel Osardu and the outgoing NDC Member of Parliament Hon David Nana Larbi.
The crowd was treated to patriotic songs as well as NDC messages from Movement for Mahama campaigners such as Yaw Ampofo Ankrah and Nana Kwaku Agyemang.
Other speakers at the mammoth rally were Saint Osei who is back to the NDC fold along with Alhaji Mohamed Nasiru. The two former NDC youth activists reminded the gathering of the massive developmental works of the party in all the reigions especially the investment in education that can never be matched by the opposition.
Another speaker who received huge applause with his no holds barred speech was Allotey Jacobs as he cautioned the thousands gathered not to be fooled by wild promises and sweet words of the main opposition party. ''How come the NPP after eight years of looting and ethnocentric politics never thought about free education. Does it mean they were waiting for NDC to build all the schools first before they offer free education? My dear people, we all know what happens when you build a structure without a firm or solid foundation...the NDC is long term and people oriented.''
The success of Hannah Tetteh's Parliamentary campaign bid so far has been mostly down to engaging with grassroots people and addressing the issues that are dearest to them. Regarded as a potential future party leader, Hannah Tetteh was a very successful career woman having worked as a Legal Officer with th International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA) from 1992 to 1993. She also served as a legal officer with the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) in Ghana.
Her vast and deep wealth of experience has also seen her working with the Ghana Agro Food Company and several other positions until she went into politics in 2000.
