NPP sets up membership drive task force in Gomoa West

Gomoa-Onyadze (C/R), March 11, GNA - The New Patriotic Party (NPP) members in twelve communities in Gomoa West have set up a 21-member membership drive task force to win more support for the party to enable it to capture the Gomoa West parliamentary seat for the party in next December general elections.

The communities include, Gomoa-Ankamu, Mprumem, Otsew, Simbrofo, Onyade, Bewadze, Amenfi, Asebu, Pomadze, Ansaful, Mankoadze, and Gomoa-Ablekum.

Addressing the maiden meeting of the task force at Gomoa-Onyadze on Wednesday, Mr. Robert Budu, former vice-chairman of Gomoa-West constituency branch of the party charged members of the task force to whip up the interest of the NPP among voters in the area.

Members of the group were told to educate the electorate on the achievements of the party within the past four years, as well as other important issues initiated by the NPP government to promote the development of the nation.

Mr. Budu also advised members of the task force to educate all qualified voters in the twelve communities to register as from March 16 to pave the way for their chances to cast their votes without any problem.

Miss Joyce Aidoo, District Chief Executive for Gomoa, also advised participants at the meeting to attach great value to the work of the party to enable them annex the parliamentary seat in the area from the NDC.

The meeting praised the NPP government for the commencement of the Mallam Nyamoransa trunk road, which they contended, would help speed up the development of the towns and villages along the road.

They requested the government to rehabilitate government health posts, health centres and clinics at Gomoa-Buduatta, Ngyiresi, Nyanyano, Gomoa-Oguaa, Fetteh-Kese, Ojobi, Mankoadze, and Gomoa-Onyade, to enable them function effectively.

They also stressed the need for government to extend electricity to those clinics, which lacked electricity to help them store vital drugs and vaccines needed to promote their work.
