cediMr Charles Obeng Inkoom, Member of Parliament for Agona West, has urged constituents to pay back bank loans granted them for others also to benefit.

He said the decision by the banks and other financial institutions to grant loans to individual traders was to help them improve their businesses and asked them to abide by the rules and regulations pertaining to the facility.

Mr Inkoom made the call at a day’s working visit to markets and transport unions in Agona Swedru to express gratitude to the people for giving him the mandate to represent them in Parliament and also to share their concerns and the way forward.

Mr Inkoom also asked the citizenry to honour their taxes, tolls and property rate obligations to support the Common Fund of the district assemblies for development.

The MP told the transport unions that he had made arrangement with some vehicle companies to supply them with buses for them to repay in installments as he promised during his campaign in the December 2012 election.

The traders expressed gratitude to the MP for his visit and appealed to him to plead on their behalf with the Agona West Assembly to reduce the fees paid on rented stores which has been increased from 80.00 to 150.00 Ghana cedis per month.

They explained that their businesses were not flourishing as expected and that they would be most grateful if a second look was given to the fees.

Mr Emmanuel Kwesi Lincoln, Agona West NDC Chairman, advised the people in the area that irrespective of their political affiliation they have only Ghana as their country and should not allow themselves to be used by politicians to disturb the peace in the country after the ruling on the presidential election petition at the Supreme Court.
