NPP Parliamentary Candidate for the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency, Lydia Seyram Alhassan has debunked claims that authorities initiated developmental projects in the area days leading to the by-election just to score political points.

According to her, the late Member of Parliament for the area, Emmanuel Kyerematen Agyarko undertook several developmental projects before his untimely death as such, it is unfair for anyone to make such claims.

“Why are people saying we are undertaking developmental projects only because its times for by-election… what we are doing is for the development of the community,” she noted.

Lydia Alhassan who was speaking at the NPP’s final rally ahead of Thursday’s by-election pledged to continue the projects began by her late husband if elected.

She noted that she will focus on security, sanitation, scholarship scheme, women and children empowerment and youth entrepreneurship.

She said, “we all know Ayawaso West is called the elite constituency so I’m going to work with the MCE and all assembly members uphold that name”.

Leaders of the NPP, including President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Bawumia were present to endorse the candidature of Lydia Alhassan.
