New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary aspirant for Afigya Sekyere East Constituency in the Ashanti Region, Richard Barima Sarpong, has filed his nomination to contest the upcoming primaries.

Mr Sarpong, who doubles as the Communications Manager at the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), managed to beat the deadline amidst fears of missing out.

He commended his followers and those who encouraged him to toe this path and believes the initial challenges will spur him on in his quest of leading the NPP to victory in the upcoming general elections should he secure their endorsement

He emphasised that his selfless lifestyle and teamwork in the Afigya Sekyere Constituency, the area where he was born and had his basic and secondary school education, will speak for itself during the April 25 primaries.

“I think our constituency deserves better representation. An MP must be accessible and give ears to the constituents whose aspirations must reflect our presentation in Parliament and for that matter, the laws Parliament makes,” he said.

According to him, the decision to join the race is borne out of his vision to develop human resources of the constituents, equip them with the workable employment skills that would economically empower them.

“I and my team have realised if you develop your human resources, you largely develop your nation, because human resource development is a viable pillar to every success in the future,” he added.
