The New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate for Subin constituency in Kumasi, Mr Isaac Osei, has called on all political groups and activists in the constituency to work conscientiously to ensure that peace prevailed before, during and after the December elections.
He said the government under President Kufuor had laid a solid economic foundation and there was the need for peaceful elections this year to enable the country to continue with its developmental agenda.
Mr Osei made the call on Tuesday when he visited the Ghana News Agency offices in Kumasi as part of his tour of some media organizations in the Subin constituency.
He was accompanied by members of his campaign team and visited the Daily Guide Newspaper offices, the Chronicle Newspaper and other media houses.
Mr Osei said Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo, the NPP flag-bearer carried a message of hope and prosperity for Ghana and there was the need for all Ghanaians to give him the necessary support to ensure that they were translated into reality.
Mr Osei, also the Chief Executive of COCOBOD, said when voted into office, he would facilitate meaningful development in the constituency and appealed to the youth to desist from acts that could jeopardize the unity, peace and love existing among them in the constituency.
Mrs Elizabeth Kankam Boadu, Ashanti Regional Manager of GNA, said the Agency played a vital role in the dissemination of news to the public and provided feedback on government policies and programmes, which were important for governmental action.
She, however, said the Regional Office was woefully under-resourced and that hampered the policy of the Agency, which was speed and accuracy among other things.
Mrs Kankam Boadu appealed to Mr Osei to use his offices as the Chief Executive of COCOBOD to assist the Agency with logistics.
