Mr Ben Ohene Ayeh, National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary candidate for Nsawam-Adoagyiri, has launched his campaign with a call on the electorate to vote for him and President John Dramani Mahama in the General Election.
Mr Ayeh noted that government had for the past three years achieved a lot in infrastructure development in the Municipality in the fields of education, health and local governance.
He said there is therefore the need for the people to renew the mandate of the government to continue with the Better Ghana Agenda.
In an interview with the Ghana News Agency on Thursday in Nsawam in the Eastern Region, Mr Ayeh pledged to build a strong road network infrastructure especially in settler communities to link all other communities to boost economic activities in the constituency.
He said when voted into power, he would institute a monthly “meet Your Member of Parliament (MP)” series to have regular interactions with his constituents on the common problems confronting them.
Mr Ayeh pledged to institute an MP Scholarship and Excellent Awards Scheme for needy but brilliant students in the constituency to improve the quality of education at both the basic and the secondary levels.
“I will expand security to the door steps of every inhabitant in the constituency by lobbying for more Police stations, build a stronger communication framework to ensure timely flow of information and create opportunities for small scale businesses in the constituency, “he added.
Mr Ayeh said he would build vibrant entrepreneurial capacity for the youth to enhance their market values and create job opportunities for them.
He will also constitute Sanitation Monitoring Guards to prevent residents from dumping refuse at unauthorised places.
He reiterated his commitment to institute an MP Cup Tournament to be competed among schools in the constituency.
Mr Mark Amoako Dompreh, Municipal Chief Executive urged the electorate to use their strength and wisdom to give unflinching support to the NDC Presidential and Parliamentary candidates.
Nsawam-Adoagyiri Constituency was created out of the Nsawam Aburi Constituency by C178.
