The keys to the ground floor of an ultramodern 2-storey building have been handed over to the executives of the New Patriotic Party in the Kwabre East Constituency, by Francisca Oteng Mensah, the Member of Parliament, who is barely 2 years into her first term.
The gesture is in fulfillment of her promise prior to her election as the MP that, she would put up a befitting edifice to accommodate the administrative and official activities of the party and also to ease it from pressure from landlords and inconveniences at the former rented one room office.
At a brief ceremony, Francisca Oteng Mensah charged the executives to make good use of the structure and make it welcoming to the rank and file of the party in order to beef up the electoral gains of the NPP in the constituency, which gave the ruling party the highest number of votes in the 2016 elections.
She expressed optimism that the new office, with its accompanying logistics would rekindle the support of the grassroots to improve on the over the 71000 votes in the 2016 elections to a much higher figure in the 2020 general elections.
The structure when completed would apart from the ground floor serving as constituency office, also have a skills development center for the youth on the first and a conference center on the second floor.
Speaking with Angel News after the handing over ceremony, Maame Serwaa praised the Akufo Addo led government for initiating major policies like Free SHS, Planting for Food and Jobs, Nation Builders Corps and One District One Factory which has brought a lot of relief to her constituents.
Ghana’s youngest MP however pleaded with government to urgently consider the construction of roads in the Kwabre East Municipality, a matter she described as the biggest challenge facing her people.
Receiving the keys on behalf of the party, the Kwabre East Constituency Chairman of the NPP, Opoku Agyemang Bonsu thanked the MP for fulfilling her promise and pledged to make sure the edifice is put to good use to ensure the party becomes more attractive in the area.
