Techimantia (B/A), March 20, GNA – Dr. Hannah Louisa Bisiw, Tano South parliamentary candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has appealed to voters in the constituency to give her the nod in the December polls.
Addressing supporters and sympathizers of the NDC at a rally at Techimantia to launch her campaign, Dr. Bisiw, who is the Deputy Minister of Works and Housing, said Mr. Andrew Agyei-Yeboah, the incumbent MP, had failed the constituents for the past 12 years that he had represented them in Parliament.
She said it was within three years of President Mills’ term in office that the area had experienced massive infrastructural development and advised the electorate to retain the NDC for more development projects.
Dr. Bisiw said the people would do a great disservice to themselves if they failed to vote for her and also retained the NDC as “all the on-going projects will be abandoned if you fail to vote for the NDC”.
She expressed concern about the low representation of women in Parliament and her decision to contest the seat would inspire women and girls in the area to pursue higher in life.
She said issues affecting women and children had been relegated for a long period and advised women contesting parliamentary seats to reach out to the grassroots to canvass for votes.
Dr. Bisiw said health and education were her main priorities and she organised annual free health screening in the communities and also sponsored a number of students in tertiary and second cycle institutions.
Mr. Zakaria Anaba, Tano South District Chief Executive, emphasized that the government’s “Better Ghana agenda” was on course in the district.
He said there had been improvement in the road network, health, education and the agric sectors.
Mr. Anaba said the people could only renew the mandate of the NDC if they register during the biometric voters registration exercise and debunked the allegation that the biometric machine had health implications.
Mr. Anaba advised NDC members who would represent the party at the various registration centres to comport themselves well and be extra vigilant to help the Electoral Commission to compile a credible register.
