The National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) parliamentary candidate for the North Dayi Constituency in the Volta Region, Miss. Joycelyn Tetteh, has pledged to commit a substantial portion of her salary as a legislator to support the education of the youth, especially the needy, when elected.
“I do not need huge sums of money to live on, so I can part with some of my earnings for a worthy cause,” the 28-year-old law student of the University of Cape Coast said in an interview in Ho recently.
Miss Tetteh said she would give priority to the mobilisation funds to assist Basic Education Certificate Examination candidates.
On health, she announced that plans to embark on a vigorous programme to promote environmental cleanliness with support from a non-governmental organisation which was also to provide potable water to as many communities as possible in the constituency.
According to her, one of such projects has already began at Awate-Tornu.
Miss Tetteh added that litter bins would be provided at various communities in the constituency to maintain a clean environment at all times.
