Techiman (B/A), July 17, GNA - Mr Prince Oduro Mensah, New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Techiman South has indicated his intention to seek re-election in 2004.
Mr Isaac Osei-Antwi, Techiman District Chief Executive, who disclosed this in an interview with Ghana News Agency at Techiman on Tuesday, said Professor Christopher Ameyaw Akumfi, Minister of Ports, Harbours and Railways would also contest the Techiman North seat. He said the NPP had no problem in winning the two seats as "a large number of people in the area have acknowledged what the Government is doing for the nation."
"The people of Techiman will surely endorse the candidature of the two NPP contestants, come the general election in 2004."
Touching on recent development projects initiated in the district, Mr Osei-Antwi said a block of three rooms had been constructed for a clinic at Aworowa, while the Offuman Health Centre was being renovated. Mr Osei-Antwi said the Techiman District Security Council (DISC) was doing its best to control the crime wave as neighbourhood watch committees were being formed in the communities to undertake night patrols to arrest suspected criminals.
The DCE advised party supporters to lead exemplary lives and to intensify their campaigns to educate the people on government policies and programmes.
