Mr. Ekow Ewusi, the Central Regional first Vice Chairman pledged an amount of GH¢10,000.00 to support a party office being constructed at Agona Nsaba adding that the Agona East was an orphan constituency that needed extra work to win more supporters for the party.
He stated that Central Regional Party executives led by Mr. Robert Kutin, Jnr, the Regional Chairman have promised to offer logistics to propel the party supporters to work to win the Parliamentary seat from National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2020 elections.
He gave the assurance that any of the three Aspiring Parliamentary Candidates namely Dr. Kennedy Abrokwa, Professor Kwesi Yankah and Mr. Prince Essah who would win the primaries would be the NPP MP for Agona East in 2020 elections.
Mr. Ewusi called for unity, selfless, dedication and hard work as the only panacea that could guarantee a win for the Party in both the Parliamentary and Presidential elections.
The Vice Chairman explained that the essence of inaugurating the three wings was to afford the party the opportunity to prepare enough grounds to increase the Parliamentary seats from 19 to 23 in 2020.
He said the government had worked extra hard to clear all outstanding arrears owed by the National Health Insurance Authority NHIA.
The promise to restore teachers and nurses allowances, reduction of Electricity and Water Tariffs among others to ease financial burden on Ghanaians had been done.
The government he noted was also aware of the bad nature of road infrastructure in the Agona East and West constituencies and assured the people that all the road projects were captured in the 2020 budget.
