Former NDC Chairman of the Awutu Senya West Constituency in the Central Region Hon. Simon Duodu says it will be hypocritical on his part not to support President Akufo-Addo’s bid for another term in office as several of his family members and relatives of fellow NDC members have benefitted from a number of policies implemented by the NPP administration.
Hon. Simon Duodu made the statement when he joined the First Lady, Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo on her tour of parts of the Central region to canvass votes for President Akufo-Addo and the NPP in the up-coming December 7th elections.
“My nephews and nieces are benefitting from President Akufo-Addo’s Free SHS and the nurses are finally being employed after so many years at home; our sons and daughters who graduated from University and were sitting at home are benefiting from NABCO, there is now confidence that our NHIS cards will work when we go to the hospitals and dumsor is no more. Why should I not support President Akufo-Addo for another term” he asked.
The NDC Chairman also commended the NPP MP for Awutu Senya West and Deputy Minister for Communications, Hon. Nenyi George Kojo Andah for the many development projects he has facilitated in the constituency since becoming their representative in Parliament.
He said among other things, Hon. George Andah has facilitated the up-grading of the constituency’s health centre to a Polyclinic with a resident Doctor and Doctor’s quarters, lobbied for a significant increase of beneficiaries of the school feeding programme from six (6) to fifty-six (56) schools, refurbished and equipped a library and Music studio for the community, constructed a dormitory for the Senya SHS, paving the Bawjiase Market and constructing a Landing Wharf.
The NDC Chairman therefore called on his fellow NDC members who have benefitted from the NPP’s many social intervention policies not shy away from reality but rather rally support and vote massively for President Akufo-Addo and the NPP parliamentary candidates to consolidate their achievements.
As part of her tour, the First Lady paid a courtesy call on the Paramount Queen of Awutu at her Bawjiase palace where she interacted with other Queen mothers and widows in the community.
She also paid a courtesy call on the Chief of Budumburam, Nana Kojo Essel and his elders, visited the Budumburam and the Nyanyanor Kakraba Markets to interact with traders and later commissioned the Naase Okaikor (I) Community Library and Music Studio which was refurbished, and equipped by Hon. George Andah.
