“This is about time that the young ones particularly myself need to step out and offer myself for leadership; leadership for Parliament. Mind you, we need to put together quality human resource to demonstrate to the world that indeed Lower West Akim has something good to offer and I have prepared myself over the period and have come to the point that after inner research and proper consultation it’s about time to step forward and ask the hands of the people to be selected as their parliamentary candidate and possibly the member of Parliament for Lower West Akim for the 2024 elections going forward.”
Mr Kwame Frimpong intimated that the representation of the constituents in Parliament and the development of Lower West Akim is one very important thing that should not be toyed with.
He continued that “I Owen Kwame Frimpong who is the native of the Lower West Akim hold the view that the past and present MPs have done a good job but the pace at which we are developing is too slow.
There’s therefore the need to inject in fresh young people with new ideas that can push for the development of Lower West Akim to a higher level.”
Speaking in an interview with Soireenews. com, Mr. Kwame Frimpong pointed out that he is a good standing member of the NDC and that he decided to enter into the race because he has the people in the constituency at heart.
"I want to tell the members and supporters of the NDC to vote for me to win the incoming NDC parliamentary primaries in order to win the seat for them. I am not in the race for my own personal interest or to win and amass wealth for myself.

According to him, empirical evidence on the ground suggested the party needed to present a new candidate to enable the party to win the parliamentary seat from the NPP in the upcoming election.
Mr Kwame Frimpong who is very passionate about the education development of the youths in the area believes it was time for a youthful candidate who was ready to work to change the fortunes of the constituency to be elected to champion his vision on education, health, youth and women empowerment.
