The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) has donated GH¢3,000 to enable water supply to be extended from a 2.5 kilometre distance to the Japkahi Community in the Kumbungu Constituency.
The support was to demonstrate the PPP’s commitment to meeting the needs of the people and the need for the electorate to vote for the party in the December 7th general elections.
Mr. Frederick Menu, a member of the PPP, who made the donations on behalf of the PPP flagbearer, Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom, said even though the party was not in power, it had donated towards the water provision of the community.
He said the party would provide prosperity, quality education, good health and incorruptible leadership to the people of the country should it win the coming election, saying that even though the party was not in power, it was providing the basic needs of the people.
He said the flagbearer came to the community two weeks ago and the major problem the people complained about was the request for some funds to extend potable water to the area.
He added that Dr. Nduom promised to do so noting ‘that promise of the flagbearer had been fulfilled’.
Mr. Abukari Alhassan, the Parliamentary Candidate for the Kumbungu Constituency on the ticket of the PPP, promised the people of more social amenities should he be voted into power and advised the people to forget about the NPP and the NDC since those parties had failed the nation.
He described his chances in the coming elections as very bright in the constituency, noting that the NDC, which was a ruling party, had woefully failed in fulfilling its promise in the area.
Mr. Alhassan said his main aim of contesting the parliamentary seat was to enhance the living standard of the people through development at all levels.
Alhaji Baba Yahaya, the Northern Regional Chairman of the PPP told the people that the party was a development oriented, which would speed up development in the rural areas should it be given the nod.
He said the party was coming to rescue Ghanaians from their sufferings because they had been suffering in the hands of the NDC and the NPP for far too long and it was the time for the PPP to alleviate their sufferings.
Alhaji Yahaya was of the view that the party would win at least 10 to eleven seats in the region and would provide skills acquisition to the unemployed and beef up the skills of those in the former services to enhance the development of the country.
