Aspiring Sakaman Assemblyman upbeat about chances
Accra, Aug. 27, GNA - Mr Joseph Kwei Mensah, aspiring Sakaman Electoral Assemblyman, is upbeat about his chances of winning the September 2, District Assembly elections.
'I have interacted with a large number of the electorate, who have expressed optimism about my chances of winning and I have also strategised on how to be an assembly member to meet the development expectations of the people,' he said in an interview with Ghana News Agency, on Thursday.
Mr Mensah who has been a councilor with the Ablekuma Sub- Metro of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly for almost a decade expressed unhappiness about the unavailability of a basic school and a police station in the electoral area, which he said would be part of his development agenda.
He said he would liaise with the assembly, various industries within the area, as well as the chiefs and other stakeholders to assist with the financing of the projects.
Campaigning on the message of dedication, discipline and devotion, he noted that he is ready to shoulder the responsibility of addressing the needs of the electorate and ease their development challenges.
Mr Mensah was behind the construction of a drain in the neighbourhood, to end the perennial flooding and other sanitary conditions in the area, which have been a source of worry to residents.
He expressed worry over the campaigning for votes in the electoral area on party colours, by some of his opponents, adding that it violates the political neutrality of the district assembly concept.
He urged all registered voters to turn out in their numbers to ensure the success of the elections.
