Ghana: Win or Lose, I Will Develop Constituency - NDC Aspirant Pledges

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for the Upper Denkyira East Constituency, Dr. Mark Kurt Nawaane, has stated that he was committed to the development of the constituency, and that whether he wins or not, he would continue to help the area with development projects, as part of his social responsibility.

He noted that Dunkwa, the constituency capital, lacked so many amenities like good roads and educational infrastructure, and that it would require a development-oriented person like him to go to Parliament to fight for their cause.

The medical officer cum philanthropist made this known when he commissioned a GH¢15,000 market, which he solely financed for the constituents of Atekyem, a suburb of Dunkwa-on-Offin, on Tuesday.

He said the project was in fulfillment of a promise he made to the chief, when he and his elders approached him to assist rehabilitate the dilapidated market.

The NDC aspirant, who has stayed in the area for the past 16 years, also owns the St. Mark International School, as well as a private hospital.

He has assisted the Babianiha community in the constituency with a school block, a football team, and a football pitch, as well as other projects, and hoped the people would give him the mandate to represent them in Parliament, and champion their interests.

Mr. Alex Dowoman, a businessman who contested, Dr. Nawaane in the parliamentary primary and lost, was very happy with the construction of the Atekyem market.

He pledged to support Dr. Nawaane bring development projects to the area for the benefit of Denkyira in general.

The Chief of Atertyem, Nana Dormang II, commended Dr. Nawaane for single-handedly financing the project, and called on the constituents to vote massively for him to become the MP, to enable him open up the place for development.
