Afram Plains Deserves Better – Samira Bawumia
Hajia Samira Bawumia, the second lady of the Republic of Ghana has made it known that, the people of Afram Plains deserves better.
The Second Lady made the statement during her visit to the Constituency on Wednesday, October 14, 2020.
The wife of the Vice President in her statement stated that, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has since 1992 won the Parliamentary seat in the Afram Plains Constituency but the people can not boast of any developmental project.
“The NDC has won here since 1992 till 2016. I strongly believe that, the NPP will win in 2020. We vote because we want development but that is not the case here. I urge you all to vote for Nana Koree as your Member of Parliament and Nana Addo as your President. I believe when you do this, you will see better developmental projects. Send Nana Koree to Parliament and he will get you better things” she stated.
In response to a request made by the Chief Imam, Alhaji Fuseini Osman, the Second Lady stated that, work will commence soon on the road.
“Before I commence with my message, I will like to promise the Chief Imam that, the gutter he talked about has been awarded as contract under the 1 Million per Constituency and contractors will come soon to commence work on it” she added.
Alhaji Fuseini Osman in his speech made it known that, the main road leading the Islamic Community to the nearby communities is nothing good to write home about.
Hajia Samira in her speech further made it known that, the NDC has promised to review the free SHS policy but can’t do it.
“When the NPP brought the free SHS on board, the NDC claim it can’t be possible. Today, they are here saying they will review and make it better if given the opportunity. If they could, why didn’t they initiate it themselves?” she questioned.
She further adviced the people to change their vote pattern in the 2020 General Election.
“The whites always say, you can’t keep doing the same thing and expect a different result. This time around, change your vote pattern. Vote for the NPP (both Parliamentary and Presidential) for better development” she further stated.
The second lady was at Donkorkrom and Maame Krobo in both the Afram Plains North and South Constituencies respectively to interact with the Islamic and Fulani Communities.
Hajia Samira also stated that, she is a Fulani and does not believe the NPP will sack Fulanis as speculated by the NDC.
“The NDC has raised and deceived Ghanaians that, the NPP will sack all Fulani people from Ghana. Take a critical look at me. I am a Fulani and I don’t believe my political party will sack me neither will they sack any Fulani. Disregard whatever they tell you and vote for the NPP come December” she urged the Fulani community.
The programme saw dignitaries like Mr. Atsu Vedzi (Constituency Chairman), Jeff Konadu (Eastern Regional Secretary), Hon. Kwakye Darfour (Eastern Regional Minister) among others attending.
