First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo, on Friday visited the Okaikwei North Constituency and called on electorates to choose four more years for President Akufo-Addo to do even more for the nation.
She visited and also talked with the chiefs of Achimota and also Akweteman, in addition to traders at the Achimota and Lapaz Markets, appealing to them to vote massively to retain the government in power in the December 7 elections, so it can proceed with its developmental program.
The First Lady stated that the New Patriotic Party- led government had actually done a great deal of job within the past 3 and a half years, therefore, was worthy of one more term in office.
“The President is doing all the work he promised to do one by one, which include free SHS, the restoration of teacher trainee and nurses’ allowance, and ending of dumsor and so he and the NPP deserve four more years to continue the good works for all Ghanaians,” she stated.
She explained that the tour was to connect with the problems of the people so she could inform the President to discover a remedy to them.
The Rebecca Foundation, she stated, was likewise enhancing government initiatives by sustaining health care delivery, provision of mentorship as well as skills training for both in and out of college girls, as well as women empowerment, among others.
Nii Ayibonte Adams, Chief of Achimota, and Nii Nmai Akwetey Brenya III, Akweteman Mantse, invited the First Lady to the Constituency and wished her party well in the upcoming elections.
Nii Brenya appealed for a footbridge to be built on the N1 Freeway, particularly between Akweteman and Apenkwa, to put a stop to the constant pedestrian knockdowns on that stretch as they tried to go across.
Both chiefs appealed to the government to concentrate on the construction of their area link-roads, especially the bypass from the Old Terminal to Akweteman, which is untarred and also posed health hazards to the locals due to the dust.
The First Lady was with Mr Fuseini Issah, the Member of Parliament for Okaikwei North, Mr Boye Laryea, the Metropolitan Chief Executive, and other NPP officials, that were cheered and applauded by the community members gathered on streets to hail her arrival among yells like “Four more for Nana.”
