Political leaders urged to come out with feasible policies

Mr John Nyonator, Wassa East District Director of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE), on Saturday called on political leaders to come out with policies to address poverty, ignorance, diseases and lack of self esteem and determination.

He made the call during a debate for parliamentary candidates in the district organized by the NCCE at Daboase.

Mr Nyonator urged political leaders to desist from fanning ethnicity, religious and political violence.

“Our meeting here is a symbol of unity, which has a greater value than resorting to the use of abusive or inflammatory language or incitements,” he said.

Mr Nyanator said: “Let us leave behind a cocktail of political piety and rich moral qualities for a happy and peaceful co-existence”.

Mr Wilson Arthur, New Patriotic Party parliamentary candidate for Wassa East, said he would establish gari processing factories to promote the production and export of gari in the area when elected.

He said the area was well noted for its good quality gari and that he would put in place incentives to increase production for local consumption and export.

Mr Arthur said he would establish agro processing factories and a district food distribution company.

Mr Fiifi Twumasi Ankrah, Progressive People’s Party parliamentary candidate, said he would ensure that the name of the district was changed to the Daboase District.

He said Wassa East, the present name of the district, is not appropriate.

Mr Ankrah said he would also ensure that the Subri Industrial Plantation Limited, located at Daboase, is resuscitated.

Mr Isaac Adjei Mensah, National Democratic Congress parliamentary candidate, did not participate in the debate.
