Ghana: DCE Launches Campaign for Kumawu Seat

MR. SAMUEL Asiamah, the parliamentary candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the Kumawu Constituency has launched his campaign at Oyoko in a bid to wrestle the seat from the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Mr. Asiamah, who is currently the District Chief Executive for Kumawu, will be contesting for the seat, which has been occupied by NPP since 1997.

He will have to beat his main contender, Mr. Philip Basoah, who defeated the incumbent Member of Parliament, Yaw Baah in an NPP primary to contest the elections for the NPP in the December elections.

Mr. Asiamah asked the people to assess the numerous social amenities and poverty alleviation initiatives that he had provided for the communities pointing to modern school buildings and health and sanitation facilities and the Kumawu water project, as some of the amenities and added that "I will continue to provide such facilities should you give me the mandate".

"You have all seen what I have done so far in just two years as a DCE and if you vote for me to win the seat, I will provide more of such social amenities to better your lots", he emphasized.

The aspiring MP said the Kumawu Water project would enable the good people of Kumawu and its environs to enjoy free flow of water supply soon."

Mr. Asiamah emphasised the need for all party supporters to join hands in the campaign process to win the seat for the NDC.

He assured to commit himself to the development of the area in four areas of spatial policy, economic policy, social policy and institutional policy.

Mr. Asiamah, therefore, entreated the enthusiastic party supporters to vote massively for him and the President John Dramani Mahama to bring more development projects to the constituency.
