Listen to article

Accra, 19 July, GNA - Dr Francis N A Sowah, aspiring parliamentary candidate of NPP for La Dadekotopon has promised to build bridges to heal the animosity between the youth and elders in the community. Addressing polling station chairmen and party supporters at the weekend, he said no community could progress with mistrust and appealed to the people to forget the past and move forward.

Dr Sowah who is a Senior Lecturer at Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), urged the polling station chairmen to give him their nod to transform the constituency, which was rich in human and natural resources but lacked development. He expressed concern about how the MP used his share of the Common fund in the constituency.

The parliamentary aspirant noted that the constituency, which housed security services like, the army, police and prisons had to cater for by the state and said the MP could have done more with his share of the Common Fund.

On education, Dr Sowah promised that if given the mandate he would work to provide every basic school in the area with five computers each in addition to the provision of three Internet caf=E9s at vantage points for educational purposes.

Mr Bernard Opare-Baah the Campaign Manager, charged the delegates to vote for Dr Sowah.

He urged supporters of the contestants to be fair to avoid unnecessary confrontation and said, "politics is a game of diplomacy and persuasion but not force".
