The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Tarkwa Nsueam, Mrs. Christina Kobinah has urged Ghanaians to continue with the quest for peace and violence free towards the upcoming Presidential and parliamentary elections.
She said this year’s elections should not be allowed to generate division among political parties.
Mrs. Kobinah made the call on Wednesday when she began an eighteen-day tour to explain to the people of Tarkwa Nsueam the achievements of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
As part of the tour, the MCE called on chiefs within the Municipality.
She was accompanied by the presiding member of Tarkwa Nsueam, Mr. Moses Ackah, Coordinator in Charge of National Youth Employment Programme, Mr. Danladi Salifu, the municipal National Disaster Management Organization Coordinator, Mr. Kenneth Mensah and the Propaganda Secretary of the Tarkwa Nsueam National Democratic Congress party, Mr. Joseph Abban Mensah.
Mrs Kobinah was addressing the chiefs and people of Anyinase, Domeabra, Senyakrom, Green Compound, Essaman Kakraba, Booboobo, New Takoradi, Lay-out, old Town, Tarkwa Naboso and Cyanide at separate durbars.
Kobinah said since she assumed office in 2009, the NDC government had improved the health sector, education, infrastructure, water, street lights, rural electrification and reshaped roads in remote areas.
She said the government would not relent on these achievements but continued to pursue vigorous programmes and policies aimed at improving the well-being of the people of Tarkwa Nsueam.
The MCE emphasized that Ghana could not move forward if its citizens continued to embark on politics of divisiveness and hatred.
She, therefore, pledged to support the efforts of the NDC government to enable them achieve the better Ghana agenda.
The NYEP Coordinator, Mr. Danladi Salifu added that the NDC government had set up an Information Communication Technology centre in which hundreds of youths had been trained in mobile phones and computer repairs.
He said under the NYEP, many individuals had been employed in the security services, health and education sectors.
Mr. Salifu said this year one hundred youths were receiving training in dress making as against thirty in 2011, adding that trainees would be provided with start-up kits.
The NYEP coordinators appealed to the youth in Tarkwa Nsueam to embrace this programmme to enable them earn a living from it. He said government would continue to create avenues to absorb the large unemployed. GNA
