‘2 Assembly Members seek re-election to complete projects’

Mrs Esther Nimo, Assembly Member for Adukrom electoral area in the Afram Plains North District, says she wants another term to complete projects she started.

Mrs Nimo, who is seeking re­election come December 17, disclosed that through her efforts, plans were advanced to construct classroom blocks for a number of communities in the area.

She mentioned that Kolape, Vegbe, Buenya, Duvorkope, Ofram, Bethel and some other areas were to benefit from kindergarten blocks to prevent children from walking several kilometres to and from school each day.

Mrs Nimo, a trader, who was speaking in an interview with the GNA, said most parents failed to enrol their four­year old children in school due to the long distances they had to trek to school each day.

She said she lobbied the assembly to provide Community Health and Planning Services (CHPS) compound at Kwasikrobo and Adukrom Number one and want to have another term to ensure its completion.

According to the assembly member, her plan was to ensure that every community had a CHPS compound to provide access to healthcare for the people and schools in all the area to ensure that every child of school going age was not denied education.

 Mrs Nimo, who is contesting three men for the position, has appealed to the electorate to vote for her to complete her projects.

In a related development, the Assembly Member for Gyankama/Konkonuru Electoral Area in Akuapem South district, Ms Rhodaline Aidoo, appealed to the electorate to vote and retain her in the assembly to continue with her vision.

Ms Aidoo, a teacher, who is the incumbent assembly member, is the only female contesting with four male candidates in the electoral area.

Speaking with the GNA, she said she had an unfinished business to complete to improve the lot of the people in the area.

Ms Aidoo said prior to her contesting in the 2015 District level Election (DLE), women in the area avoided politics and decision making, but her election to the assembly had whipped up interest of women in local governance.

She said she would ensure that traders, especially women, get soft loans to expand their businesses, and appealed to the people to go all out and vote for her come December 17. – GNA
