Stop tarnishing the image of Dr Bisiw

In a statement signed by the secretary of the constituency, Mr Kwame Amponsah Kusi, it said Dr Bisiw 93is a young, hard working lady who stands out as a role model and inspiration to the youth, especially the women folk". The statement said the deputy minister had been very proactive by goin= g round to solicit for support and resources to help better the lot of the people in the constituency adding that 93it is very unfortunate that while= we talk of gratitude, a few individuals as a result of their parochial interests are seeking to create the impression that the good works of the minister are a crime and a capital offence."

It said the deputy minister had provided dormitories for schools, potable water, given support to religious activities, supported the sick an= d the physical handicapped, facilitated programmes to entertain and unite the youth and provided eye and breast screening exercises for the community. It said the detractors are some people in the constituency who felt overshadowed by the activities of the deputy minister and wanted to do everything to scandalize her adding that the system would soon expose them. The statement urged Dr Bisiw to ignore the accusations, remain focused and continue to play her part towards the realization of the government's Better Ghana Agenda.
