NGO cautions contestants to stop giving empty promises

Amanase (E/R), Sept. 12, GNA - Mr Freeman Madzi, Executive Director, Abibiman Sankofa Cultural Movement (ASCUM), an NGO, on Thursday urged parliamentary contestants to desist from giving promises they cannot honour.

He said some politicians were finding their way into movements with "sweet talks", which he described as vain promises. He therefore urged members of the ASCUM, which is an association that uses drama to promote wealth creation, to be careful. Mr Madzi was addressing a meeting of about 450 members of ASCUM at Amanase in the Eastern Region.


The association has 850 registered members from 26 branches in the Suhum Kraboa Coaltar District. He urged members to vote wisely during the December polls. 12 Sept. 08
