The Member of Parliament for Kwadaso, Dr Kingsley Nyarko, on Sunday organised his maiden town hall meeting under the theme ‘Building Kwadaso Together.’
The programme, held in collaboration with Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS), a German Foundation, was under the chairmanship of Mr Yaw Bona Boadi, the constituency chairman.
In his address, Dr Nyarko thanked all the constituents for their votes in the just ended election. He also thanked his partners, especially the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Foundation, for their partnership and support for the New Patriotic Party and to him as well.
Dr Nyarko reiterated the importance of community engagement in building a better nation and meeting the development needs of the community and the constituency as a whole.
The MP urged all and sundry to support the NPP government because it has better policies for Ghanaians, adding that the NPP is the only party in Ghana that is development oriented.
Dr Nyarko assured that he will live up to his motto, ‘Opportunity to Serve,’ stressing that he would fulfil all the promises he made during the campaign and that all projects would be completed.
He also urged them to come together and cultivate the spirit of communalism to develop their immediate surroundings and the community.
Ms Gifty Amoah, the assembly member for Nyankyerenenase, the venue for the programme, lauded the MP for the swift manner he has taken developmental issues in the area seriously.
“This is the first time for which a Member of Parliament has organised such a forum in the area,” she acknowledged, and appealed for more projects, including toilet, markets, roads, refurbishment of classroom blocks, among others.
Ms Evelyn Kwarteng, a representative of the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, pledged the Foundation’s support for such activities.
She said that the Foundation, having the centre right culture, an ideology held by the NPP, is ready to support programmes of this nature at all times.
Ms Kwarteng urged all parties in the constituency to use dialogue in addressing issues of concern or disagreements, and called for unity in developing the constituency.
Taking his turn, Mr Samuel Donkor, the constituency treasurer of the NPP, on behalf of the constituency chairman, called for all hands on deck effort in achieving a better Kwadaso.
“We cannot build a better Kwadaso when there is no collaboration and patriotism among ourselves,” she said.
The Municipal Health Director, Grace Billy, used the occasion to sensitize the participants on the Covid- 19 pandemic. She called for serious measures to be taken and adherence to protocols put in place to combat the rising global pandemic.
She appealed for a well-furnished office space for her municipal health directorate to facilitate effective discharge of their work.
Dr Nyarko later made a donation of 10 boxes of hand sanitizer and 1000 pieces of nose masks to the constituents to help in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
The participants were also given the opportunity to ask questions and make their plight and needs known.
Dr Nyarko again pledged to donate ten street bulbs to the constituency within the week as part of efforts to enhance security.
