The Parliamentary candidate of the NPP Ofosu Simon Peter Kofi honoured the invitation and ushered into the venue by his supporters.

He answered questions from the Moderator and the electorates regarding education, employment, health, agriculture etc.

Mr Ofosu promised to support agriculture in the constituency by buying a tractor each for the 12 Electoral Areas in the district to aid farming since the district is predominantly made-up of farmers.

The D. C. E. for the Akatsi North Hon Dr Prince Amuzu Sodoke appeal to all parliamentary Candidates to urge their support to let Ghana win in this election by ensuring Political Tolerance and avoid the use of derogatory words on opponents.
