A Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the National Youth Authority (NYA) and aspiring parliamentary candidate, Akosua Manu, has disclosed that over 3,170 residents of the Adentan constituency of the Greater Accra Region have benefited from her recent healthcare screening initiative.
In an interview with the media, Kozie, as she is affectionately called, explained that she spearheaded the healthcare initiative to transcend politics and touch the core of humanity.
The programme was dubbed ‘Kozie Cares Medical Outreach,’ aimed to provide accessible healthcare to her constituents. From September 14, 2023, to September 25, 2023, this healthcare crusade became a great opportunity for the people of Adentan regardless of party affiliation.
This endeavour encompassed 16 Electoral Areas, where both young and old received a range of healthcare services, including vital check-ups and the all-important national health insurance registration and renewals.
The beneficiary are Otanor, Nmai Djorn, Adjiringano, Ogbojo, Nii Ashale East and West, New Adentan East and West, Man-Hee, Gbentanaa North and South, New Legon, Loose, Amrahia Marhejor, among others.
At the final day of this healthcare mission, Akosua Manu reiterated the significance of regular check-ups and the vital role of accessible, high-quality healthcare for Adentan’s residents.
She affirmed that healthcare is a fundamental right that should never be compromised and vowed to dedicate herself tirelessly to meet the healthcare needs of her potential constituents.
On the upcoming NPP primaries, Kozie emphasised the importance of a clean campaign that unites the party for victory. She called upon fellow aspirants to uphold fairness and transparency.
Kozie further gave the assurance that she is not only interested to lead but also to unite the party at the constituency level. She, therefore, urged grassroots members to regain the parliamentary seat and break the eight-year governance cycle at the national level.
According to her, unity and effective representation are at the core of her vision for the constituents.
She also pledged to prioritize their concerns, working towards their empowerment, not just within the constituency but also on a national scale.
The aspiring NPP parliamentary hopeful also called upon party members in the constituency and all party sympathizers to rally behind her candidature
