Political Scientist at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Professor Edward Brenya, says his expertise in Ghana’s politics and his understanding of how the political machinery works in the country makes him the perfect NDC candidate for the Sekyere Afram plains constituency.
According to him, after years of practicing politics academically, he believes the knowledge he has gathered has given him “the experience and the motivation to want to go in and actually do what at some point in time what I feel is not being done right.”
“And that is the motivation – going out there, practicing politics as it should be done, making sure that we’re affecting policies that would affect the lives of the people in your constituency and Ghana as a whole, and giving out to the people who at every point in time be looking up to you and asking, ‘why is it that all this knowledge you’re putting out there you are not practicing it?’” he said.
The Professor noted that his foray into politics coincides with a growing worry from the constituents he seeks to represent in parliament about the performance of the incumbent MP, Alex Adomako Mensah.
According to him, the constituents are clamouring for a person with his expertise to lead them in parliament, and that is what he intends to do.
“We’ve had a Member of Parliament that you look at his performance over the years and the people at a point in time are getting worried, they feel that they don’t get the kind of representation that they should have had for the years that they’ve voted for this Member of Parliament, they feel that it is the time that they get those individuals with expertise to come and lead the affairs and represent them in parliament,” he said.
Prof. Brenya will be facing off against the incumbent MP, Alex Adomako Mensah, the son of an NDC flagbearer hopeful, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor Jnr. and Hajia Afrah Nasira for the NDC parliamentary seat in Sekyere Afram Plains constituency.
