Mr. Joseph Dindiok Kpemka, former Deputy Attorney General, displayed a unique gesture as he rode a bicycle to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Constituency office in Tempane to submit his nomination forms for the NPP primaries in the Tempane constituency.
Accompanied by enthusiastic supporters, Mr. Kpemka rode the bicycle for about seven kilometres from his residence in Kpikpira to the party's office.
This unconventional move was not driven by financial constraints, but rather an effort to align himself with his predominantly rural and underprivileged constituents.
“I have to identify with them on the occasion of my filing by saying that the common thing they do every day, I share with them and whatever they do and I am one of them,” Mr. Kpemka emphasized.
Having previously served one term as the Member of Parliament for Tempane, Mr. Kpemka highlighted his achievements, including infrastructure development, youth employment initiatives, and rural electrification.
He expressed confidence that his track record would set him apart in the upcoming NPP primaries, facing competition from Alhaji Ibrahim Bashiru, Deputy Chief Executive Officer for the Youth Employment Agency.
Mr. Kpemka's submission of nomination forms via bicycle ride garnered attention, serving as a symbolic gesture of his commitment to the constituents he seeks to represent once again.
His stance on community engagement and development resonates with the local population, highlighting his dedication to their needs and aspirations.
