The National Democratic Congress,(NDC) parliamentary aspirant for the Nhyiaeso Constituency, Dr Samuel Sarpong has appealed to his constituents to vote for president Mahama before they consider endorsing his candidature in the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections.
According to him, the Nhyiaeso constituency stands to gain if they voted to retain the president than any other else since he(Sarpong) as the MP for the area could solicit for more development projects if the NDC remained in government.
Addressing a cross section of constituents at Adiebeba, a community in the Nhyiaeso Constituency during the recent National Sanitation Day,(NSD) clean up- exercise, Dr Sarpong urged the people to engender same confidence in the president as they did in him.
Dr Sarpong, elaborating his points noted the president needed an extension of his mandate to ensure that he finishes with the massive infrastructural projects the NDC government had started these three and half-years.
”Just as you have seen the improvements in the first term of the president consider extending his mandate so that we can enjoy a better life”, Dr Sarpong stressed.
He added, ‘I promise to deliver as the MP for Nhyiaeso but will plead that you vote for the president so as to ensure that together we help transform Nhyiaeso’.
CLEAN UP EXERCISE:
Speaking to the paper on the NSD clean- up exercise, Dr Sarpong stressed assemblymen should be the ones to be empowered to lead the way.
According to him, they are the ones who knew the peculiar challenges in terms of sanitation in their areas, adding they could help to solve it if properly resourced.
He, therefore, proposed for the mobilization of equipment and support services to the various assemblymen across the country so as to encourage them in the exercise.
Dr Sarpong, who is the Managing Director of the State Housing Company, urged residents in the Nhyiaeso constituency to avail themselves for the exercise.
He noted a clean environment was the panacea to overcoming the threat of communicable diseases and illnesses.
