Minster for Aviation and MP for Navrongo Central , Hon. Kofi Joseph Adda who is still seeking re-election  after serving close to 12 years in parliament has already started taking a swipe at his contender the Upper East Regional Minister , Hon Tangoba Abayage who has expressed interest in the seat.

Mr. Adda in an exclusive interview on Daybreak Upper East revealed how most of the delegates in his constituency were yearning to give him another mandate to contest the 2020 general elections. While describing some Constituency Executives as “Greedy”, the MP said with the help of some few Constituency executives, he was optimistic of winning without a shred of doubt.

“There is no pressure from anywhere for me not to contest , my constituents are telling me to contest on the contrary ,I’ve gone round my polling stations and they are all so excited me contesting and I will not let it go because there is a lot we have to do” he said

When asked about the potential of Hon. Tangoba  Abayage , Mr. Adda  who appeared frightened by the presence of his contender ,said, she was not known in the constituency since she has  not been involved in any active party activities hence, she will be rejected. He went further insinuated that the she  only goes to Navrongo to drink beer unlike him who was closer to the party and the people.

My message to her is that ,it is not the right time for her ,I’ve not seen her do any serious party works in Navrongo throughout all the time I’ve been an MP…Nana Akufo Addo comes ,she comes , they go you go…Bawumia comes ,you come ,they go you go and drink beer and go” he stated

Hon. Joseph Kofi Adda became the MP for Navrongo Central Constituency after winning the 2003 by-elections, he maintained the seat in 2004 and 2008 and  lost in 2012 to NDC’s Hon. Mark Woyongo but reclaim the seat in the 2016 general elections. He once served in the former President John Agyekum Kuffour’s administration as Minister for Energy, Minister for Manpower Development and Employment and currently serving in the Akufo Addo’s led administration as the Minister for Aviation after his reshuffle from the Sanitation Ministry.

The Navrongo Central Constituency seat is one of the political hot spots in the Upper East Region where most eyes are fixed to know the outcome in the upcoming  2020 general elections.
