We, the members of Ave Students Union (ASU) writes to endorse Dr Donald Senanu Agumenu as Parliamentary Candidate for the Akatsi North Constituency in the Volta Region.
Our decision to endorse Dr Donald Agumenu as the Parliamentary Candidate for our young constituency was arrived at after comprehensive research carried out by the union to determine the feelings of our electorate including their aspirations and quest for the rapid socio-economic upliftment of the area.
Akatsi North is one of the Youngest Constituencies in the Volta Region bedevilled with many challenges such as bad roads networks, lack of potable drinking water, high youth unemployment and lack of proper health care facilities to serve our people including the absence of needed agro-processing factories to process our tomatoes and cassava, which we grow in abundance.
The current MP has been in office for 16 years as a two term DCE and MP for two terms yet our people endured high-handedness and deprivation by few opportunist politicians who surround the MP and took advantage of the problems to push the constituency further down the development ladder.
We, the students front and young people have come to realize that our future is gloomy if the status quo remains hence the need for change now.
We painstakingly follow the trails of the three aspirants and we are pleased to inform our cherished Branch Executives that DR. DONALD SENANU AGUMENU best represents our collective interest to be the Next member of parliament for Akatsi North.
Dr. Donald Agumenu has convinced us with the many steps he has taken to address the challenges within the constituency from his own resources.
Through the ingenuity of Dr. Agumenu, many of our villages now have safe drinking water. He continues to provide educational and financial support to many of our youth in tertiary institutions from his own pocket. Dr Agumenu continue to support some of our youth to learn artisanal trade to have a decent living and as well provide street lighting to various communities from his personal pocket.
There's the adage that a child who will grow into a great athlete is seen for his first stride; Dr Donald Agumenu has shown consistently that he has what it takes to bring life and light to the people of Akatsi North.
It is based on these and many others that we are pleading with the delegates to ignore every act of intimidation and financial inducement and go all out to vote massively for DR. DONALD AGUMENU come Saturday 24th August,2019 as the next parliamentary candidate of Akatsi North on the ticket of the NDC.
Development comes when the leader understands the need for it. With the many connections and goodwill Dr. Donald Agumenu enjoys both locally and internationally coupled with his devotion and passion for the needs of Akatsi-North, it is time to reciprocate his kind gestures by voting massively for him come Saturday 24th August,2019 to empower him to do even more.
