NDC launches campaign in New Juaben North Constituency

By gna

Mr Adu Boateng, Parliamentary Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for New Juaben North, said the NDC government when voted in power would set up an agricultural financial scheme to support both urban and rural farmers.

He said the NDC government would set up the necessary economic environment that would encourage the youth to develop their entrepreneurial skills and go into private business to create jobs for themselves and others.

Mr Boateng, a former New Juaben Municipal Chief Executive, was speaking at the launching of his campaign in the constituency and his formal introduction to the chiefs and people of the constituency at a forum at Akwadum on Wednesday.

He promised the electorate that when elected Member of Parliament, he would sponsor a sports academy to ensure that within the first four years, a team from the New Juaben Municipality qualified to play in the premier league.

Mr Boateng explained that, soccer has many economic advantages and the youth of New Juaben need to be supported to have a share in the soccer economic boom to help create wealth and employment.

He said the academy would help develop other sporting disciplines, which would be an advantage for the New Juaben Municipality.

Mr Boateng assured the people of New Juaben that when the NDC won power, it would reintroduce the domestic toilet promotion scheme, where landlords would be supported to build their own toilets in their homes.

Mr Frank Mensah Frimpong-Boateng, the campaign manager of Mr Adu Boateng, said when NDC comes back to power; it would ensure transparency and accountability in governance and would empower the citizens of the country to help fight corruption in official circles.

The Constituency Chairman of NDC, Mr Owusu Boahene, said his party would win the December elections and therefore called on the people of New Juaben North to join the party and vote massively for its presidential and parliamentary candidates.

He said the people of the constituency had learnt their lesson the bitter way and would no longer sell their voting right by collecting money to vote for a candidate who would disappoint them.
