- Mr. Yves Hanson-Nortey edged out the Member of Parliament for Tema Central and Vice Chairman of Parliament’s Roads Committee, Kofi Brako.
The freshly elected New Patriotic Party's (NPP) parliamentary candidate for Tema Central Constituency, Yves Hanson Nortey, has espoused that one is appreciated for working hard for the party.
According to him, he was part of the team that went around the country training people on how to text election results with mobile phones in 2012, when the party was in opposition and also served on various committees.
He added that he has built capacity over time by learning the rudiments of the trade.
He disclosed that it is evident now that a lot of young people are trying to move up the ladder and that some of them are fortunate to have been able to cross the line.
Yves Hanson-Nortey, however, admitted that there are others who have done better than what they have done in terms of sacrifice, but are nowhere near where the likes of him are.
This he said shows that hard work pays in the party.
Asked what makes a person NPP, he answered that it is the belief in the party's ideology and a conviction in the ability of the party to make a difference in the lives of Ghanaians.
He maintained that the 2000 elections lit a different spirit in him that made him believe change was possible and that the party could win power through the ballot box.
