The General Secretary of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA), Dr Titus Beyuo has resigned from his post to contest the National Democratic Congress parliamentary primaries in the Lambussie Constituency of the Upper West Region.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, the medical practitioner said his decision to delve into politics has been influenced by his desire to better the lot of locals in the Lambussie Constituency.
According to him, the constituency is pregnant with a lot of prospects and therefore the need for a ‘stronger representation on the national stage’.
He however, noted that the decision to transit from his professional practice into public service was not an easy one.
Nonetheless, Dr Beyuo said the support of his family, close associates and other prominent people helped him to finally decide on his political ambitions.
“Arriving at this decision was an uphill task but the support and encouragement received from my family, traditional leaders in the Lambussie Traditional Council, party leadership at the national, regional, constituency and branch levels, and friends during the consultative process, made this less difficult”, the doctor said.
