The Parliamentary Candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Afigya Kwabre North Constituency in the Ashanti Region, Mr. Emmanuel Jackson Agumah has embarked on rigorous campaign aimed at wrestling the seat from the ruling party, New Patriotic Party.
Among the communities he visited with his campaign team include Denase, Esaase, Pampatia, Nkwantakese, Akom and others. Mr. Agumah popularly known in the area as chief Agumah together with his team was highly welcomed at these communities. At Pampatia, Nkwantakese and Akom for instance, the communities demonstrated that they indeed want a change through body language.
Mr. Agumah told these communities that though, he is not a Member of Parliament but he has done a lot to change the lives of some people within the constituency. According to him, he has supplied medical equipment to the Nkwantakese Health Centre in order to offer quantity health care to the people.
He said, as part of his social responsibilities, he has also constructed over one hundred boreholes throughout the country. Mr. Agumah said the former MP for the area Mr. Albert Kan Dapaa and the current MP Nana Amaniampong have failed the constituency as they have not done anything to improve the lives of the people.
He said, Mr. Kan Dapaa was the former Minister for Defense and Interior, yet no single person was recruited into these ministries. According to him, if he elected as an MP, he will make sure that the youth in the area would be recruited into these security agencies. ” NPP thinks that this seat is safe for them so they take us for granted, this is the time to prove to them that you are voting for development” he said.
He further complained bitterly about the poor road network within the constituency.
He said, he will lobby through the appropriate quarters to get the needed attention if he becomes an MP.
He also assured the people that he will do what he can to ensure that proper markets are constructed in some towns in order to boost trading activities if he wins.
Mr. Agumah humbly appealed to them to vote for him and NDC in general in the upcoming general elections in order to improve their living conditions.Story by Charles Ampong
