Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom, the presidential candidate of the Progressive Peoples’ Party (PPP), has made a promise to construct first class roads to link the Upper West Region if he wins the presidential elections in December.
He said the major problem retarding development in the region was the poor road network and promised to give it the necessary attention if given the nod in the coming elections.
Dr. Nduom gave the assurance when he introduced Mr. James Sohimwinye, the PPP parliamentary candidate for Wa Central Constituency, to party supporters at the Wa Lorry Park on Wednesday.
“Has the President Mahama created jobs for you? Has the Nana Addo created jobs for you?” Nduom asked the supporters whose response was a loud “No”.
Dr. Nduom said he had so far created jobs for the youth in the region and promised to expand it to benefit more youth.
He said the PPP would make education, health and provision of portable water a topmost priority under its government if given the mandate.
Mr. Sohimwinye said the Member of Parliament for the constituency, Alhaji Abdul-Rashid Pelpuo, was tired and must be retired to give way to fresh ideas to propel the development of the constituency and the nation at large.
