GHANAIANS have been urged to imbibe a sense of nationalism, and see themselves foremost as patriots of their land, rather than political party loyalists.
“The country is looking up to the present generation to uphold and protect the image of the nation, and the sacrifices of her founding fathers”.
Mr. Isaac Awuku Asare, an administrator, who is an aspiring District Assembly member for the Ahenbrom Electoral area in the Suhum Municipality of the Eastern Region, expressed the sentiment after mobilising the community members to reconstruct a culvert which collapsed due to severe erosion.
He said he was coming on board with policies and programmes that would help the electoral area to develop and impact the lives of the people.
Mr. Asare said his manifesto clearly spelt out the modalities for implementing the local content policy, especially in the job and sanitation sectors.
“I am of a firm conviction that it is only a man like me who has proven to have a decisive, visionary, highly competent and capable leadership who can help alleviate the suffering of the people,” he said, adding that if given the nod, he would implement his social and human-centre intervention policies.
He enumerated some of the interventions he had already undertaken as education on the electoral process, repairing and fixing of street lights around the post office, and construction of a culvert behind the Amponsah Memorial Academy.
