We want our Assemblyman to lobby for development projects

Emmanuel Todd, GNA

Accra, Nov 1, GNA – Residents of Ashaiman
Lebanon Zone 4&5, in the Nii Komieteh Electoral Area, want the elected
Assemblyman to use his position and influence to lobby for development projects
for the area.

Among the expectations are the construction
of good roads and gutters within the area, improved security and sanitation.

The District Assembly seat is being
contested by three candidates; Dickson Amponsah the incumbent, Elder Opoku
Micheal and Micheal Freeman Tsekpo whose posters were sighted within the
electoral area.

Victor Dzifa, a photographer within the
neighbourhood, told the Ghana News Agency that only one of the candidates came
to share a flyer with him.

However, he expected that the new
Assemblyman would see to the bad road networks within the neighbourhood, which
became muddy during rains and made movement within the area difficult.

He said the construction of gutters along
the roads would help curb the challenge and was expecting the assemblyman to
adopt a much more effective way to disseminate information to get many persons
on board as much as possible to bring changes within.

He said some of the landlords in the area
did not cooperate with the former assemblyman and would expect that the next
person would adopt ways to woo them into his implementation plans.

Majeed Abubakari, Founder of Karama Base, a
group of youth within the area said the incumbent did well to enhance security
within the Zone 5 area during his time of office, but much more was expected.

He said the creation of a watchdog committee
was needed to maintain security within the area adding that engaging the Police
patrol team to at least move within the area every night was also expected.

He said the area was also challenged with
poor sanitation and the plans of the contesting assembly men to deal with the
situation would enhance their chances of winning the seat.

Madam Juliet Ansah also a resident within
the area said some of the streets lacked lights, which made it dangerous at
night and expected the candidates to come up with plans to solve such issues to
attract her vote on the day of election.
