Aspiring New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate for Jaman South in the Bono region has explained that there are knowledgeable persons in Parliament but they still need more experienced persons to augment the House.

Col Kwadwo Damoah (Rtd) who is also former Commissioner of the Customs Division of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA), said Parliament is a prestigious institution and as such their work is very unique to Ghana.

He made the observations in an interview with Onua TV on his bid to wrestle the candidacy from anyone who would pop up to contest the Jaman South NPP primaries and also become the Member of Parliament in the constituency in the 2024 elections.

“The powers of Parliament is very huge. They approve loans and determine usage of the loans,” he said in Twi.

Col. Damoah said “in collection of tolls and on the Finance Committee in Parliament, you need people with finance and toll collection background and that is where my experience and knowledge will be needed.”

The former GRA boss explained that “such special knowledge needs to be added to that Finance Committee even though there are equally good and knowledgeable people on the Committee.”

“I have served my nation in the army, I have served my nation as Commissioner of Customs and now I have to serve my people in Jaman South Constituency so that I can help develop that area too just as I did for Ghana through the army and Customs,” he added.

The Jaman South Constituency seat is currently being occupied by the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) William Okofo-Darteh.
