Avoid "Skirt and Blouse" voting-DCE

Kyekyewere (Ash), July 10, GNA- Mr. Wilberforce Owusu Ansah, District Chief Executive (DCE) for Atwima-Mponua on Tuesday advised all eligible voters belonging to the New Patriotic Party (NPP), to desist from voting against aspiring Parliamentary Candidates in their respective constituencies.

He said voting for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the party's flagbearer without voting for their own parliamentary candidates will do a lot of harm to the party in the upcoming general elections. The DCE gave the advice when he met the Chiefs and the people of Kyekyewere near Nyinahin in the District, during a familiarization tour. Mr. Owusu Ansah reminded the District Assembly of its responsibilities to provide cement and roofing sheets to communities to construct their own school blocks, Teachers accommodation and place of conveniences. He warned that, the law would deal with any one found destroying or removing posters of any Parliamentary Candidate in the District. He assured the people that Nyinahin-Kyekyewere road would be awarded on contract. 10 July 08
