Election 2020 – #4More4Nana, #4More4Abena
Over the past seven (7) years, I have had the honor of serving Atiwa East as their representative in the Parliament of the Republic of Ghana.
This opportunity has enabled me to serve Atiwa East and Ghana in various capacities to drive the development we all are passionate about.
Earlier today, I submitted my forms to contest the primaries to continue to serve – a prospect that I hold dear and a task I deem solemn.
I wish to thank the almighty God, the Chiefs and people of Atiwa East, the Executives and entire membership of the New Patriotic Party, the various political groups, my colleague MPs, and all those who have constantly worked with me and encouraged me in the discharge of my duties.
That spontaneous response that I have received from across the constituency warms my heart and gives me more energy to continue to put my shoulders to the wheel to drive our collective development.
From representing Atiwa East in parliament (making sure our collective voice is heard and our ideas are included in national deliberations) to serving as a Deputy Minister of Finance (playing a role in the bigger national development agenda led by His Excellency Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo), the gains have been astounding and there is even more than we can do if we continue on this trajectory of collaborative development.
We have invested in educational infrastructure, provided full scholarships to over one hundred students and upgraded infrastructure and services in education to deliver better and well-prepared future for our children;
Every public basic school in the District now benefits from the School Feeding Programme, up from 3 schools in 2017;
Our farmers, business community and the general workforce continue to get the support, training, and catalyst they need to make gains – to create sustainable jobs, increased incomes, and better livelihoods;
Hundreds of youth have been able to secure stable and permanent employment in both formal and informal sectors;
Improved health facilities including a specialized 20-unit maternity unit, Doctors’ flats, specialized medical equipment, provision of water and sanitation, etc. to improve the general well-being of the community
Let us continue to build on the work we have started.
Let us keep the vehicle of development in motion.
I promised to be a good role model for the youth, fight for development by catalyzing infrastructural development and the creation of employment opportunities.
The promises have been kept but I urge us to take our achievements a notch higher.
So, let me promise to do even better and surpass your expectations.
A promise made is a debt unpaid and I pledge to pay that debt – of service – to Atiwa East and mother Ghana until we create that utopia that generations yet unborn will find safe, accommodating, healthy and sustainable.
I thank you for your trust.
I thank you for this unique opportunity to serve again.
Together for Atiwa East!
Together for Development!
God bless you.
