Alhaji Boniface Abubakar Saddique, New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament-elect for Madina, says he will ensure that all projects started by the National Democratic Congress in the constituency are completed.
He said for the constituency to be developed, there was the need for the people to champion the cause of unity and hard work. Alhaji Saddique was speaking at a meeting with the chiefs and people of the Constituency as part of his Thank You tour, at Madina.
He said the one step forward and five steps backwards attitude, which led to successive governments abandoning projects initiated by their predecessors did not augur well for the country’s infant democracy.
“We need to get ourselves together as one people, one nation with one destiny,” he said adding that by so doing the nation would move forward in terms of development. Alhaji Saddique said he would introduce youth empowerment and also set up Education Trust Fund to support parents who found it difficult to pay the fees of their wards.
He assured them that the incoming government under the leadership of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo- Addo would put in place a policy framework that would help businesses expand and create jobs as well as promote entrepreneurship opportunities for Ghanaians.
Alhaji Yussif Iddrissu, Zongo Chief for Pantang-Abokobi congratulated the NPP for winning the 2016 elections. He appealed to the incoming government to immediately close the Abokobi-Pantang Landfill Site, which posed health-hazards to the community. Alhaji Iddrisu said a number of appeals and demonstrations by the community to get the Site closed by the Ga East Municipal Assembly under had fallen into deaf ears.
Nii Kotei Dzoor I, La Nkwantanang-Madina Mantse also commended the NPP for the overwhelming victory in the 2016 elections and expressed the hope that Ghanaians would throw their weight behind the new government to ensure the rapid development of the nation.
Nii Manle Dzahaa I, Teiman Mantse, urged the incoming government to create more jobs for the youth .
