The Member of Parliament (MP) for Amasaman, Hon. Akwasi Afrifa Mensah has charged all residents, businesses, and corporate organizations within the constituency to join hands and make Amasaman clean.
According to him, cleanliness is next to godliness, and ridding the area of filth is the first step towards development, since clean environment promotes good health and attracts investors for socio-economic development.
The MP who led the residents of Kutunse Electoral Area in the Amasaman Constituency in a cleanup exercise, said the maiden exercise is geared towards keeping a clean environment in line with president Akufo-Addo's vision to make Ghana, particularly, Accra, the cleanest city in Africa.
He emphasised that the Amasaman constituency is the gateway to Accra for travellers using the Accra-Kumasi Highway and was therefore imperative for him and his people to lead by example.
Hon. Afrifa said the exercise was not going to be a nine day wonder but will be extended to the other electoral areas within the constituency.
The former Director of Finance and Administration for the Ghana School Feeding Programme is confident that the constituency will receive its fair share of development under his watch.
He indicated that education, health, roads, water and sanitation, human empowerment, creation of employment and investment promotion are his priority.
Hon. Afrifa therefore called on the chiefs and people of the Amasaman constituency to support him and the Nana Addo's government to succeed.
