Kofi Kwei (G/A), April 9, GNA – Mr Isaac Awuku Yibor, Independent parliamentary candidate for Domeabra-Obom, has advised chiefs in the area to reserve some of their lands for small-scale industries to provide jobs for the youth.

He said indiscriminate selling of the lands in the area to private individuals for housing and winning of sand do not help the people but rather deprives them of their livelihood.

Mr Awuku Yibor made the call, when he interacted with the chiefs and people of Kofi Kwei, near Amasaman in the Greater Accra Region, on Easter Sunday for them to vote for him to become the Member of Parliament of the constituency.

He said in view of the endemic poverty in the area, most of the parents are not able to look after their children, especially the girl-child, to go beyond the Junior High School level, and this has brought about teenage pregnancies.

He said the area lacked motorable roads, healthcare and potable drinking water and that the constituency needs a Senior High School to absorb the JSS pupils in the area.

The Independent candidate advised the chiefs in the area to unite and assist government by offering lands to build vocational Centres to train the youth in income generating ventures.

Mr Awuku Yibor said through his own efforts, he has constructed a feeder road from Bala Gonnor to Tebu as well as the construction of culverts at Ayaa-Wilson and Abuasa, adding that,  “I was born and bred in the constituency and cannot sit and see his people suffering”.

He appealed to the people to vote for him, to enable him to mobilize the people and institutions to transform the area.

The Chief of Kofi Kwei, Nii Kofi Kwei II, complained that a water project constructed for the community is not being used due to the lack of electricity and appealed to government to come to their aid.

He said some of the surrounding communities do not have boreholes and the situation has compelled them to share the streams in the area with animals, resulting in the outbreak of waterborne diseases.

Nii Kofi Kwei called on the Ga South Municipal Assembly to assist them to bring the clinic, which was completed about six months ago into operation, to save the people from traveling far distances for their healthcare.

He said the clinic needed borehole for water and electricity power while requesting for the upgrading of the road from Nsawam to Kofi Kwei.
