The Parliamentary hopeful for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Lower West Akim Constituency of the Eastern Region, Mr. Owen Kwame Frimpong, who is affectionately called Darling has joined hundreds of residents living at Abease in the Lower West Akim District to embark on a massive clean-up exercise.
The exercise, which was organized by Abease Ward Executives of the NDC, was aimed at ensuring sanity in the community.
Darling Boy teamed up with the Abease Ward Executives of the NDC and the youth of Abease to embark on the clean-up exercise.
Apart from the clean-up exercise, Mr. Frimpong also presented items such as street bulbs, set of jerseys, football and GH¢1000.00 cash to support their community projects.
Addressing the gathering, the NDC Parliamentary hopeful pledged to provide logistics for the residents to undertake a periodic clean up exercises if he wins the parliamentary primaries and subsequently win the seat in the 2024 general elections.
The young Ghanaian entrepreneur outlined his vision on how to help the community to fight environmental sanitation and asked the public to stop disposing of waste at unauthorized places.
According to him, individuals must contribute their quota in maintaining a hygienic environment.
“This is part of a programme that I have outlined that l win the seat come 2024 general elections, every month I will move to one electoral area and do a clean-up exercise. When you look at the plastic that we have cleared on the roadside, I don’t think it is my constituents who littered but rather the commercial vehicles. So I will advise them to desist from that habit of throwing rubbish onto the streets and roadside. I will also advise my constituents to practice safe hygiene,” the NDC parliamentary hopeful noted.
On his decision to contest NDC Parliamentary Primaries in Lower West Akim Constituency, Mr Frimpong explained that as a son of the land with great leadership potential, he saw it prudent to contest for the race that may eventually lead him to become a Member of Parliament for the area.
He highlighted the importance of politics in the development of every society and was confident becoming a leader in the political arena would give him more opportunities to continue his good works for the people.
The Abease Ward Executives of the NDC were appreciative of the support Mr. Frimpong has extended to the community over the years and wished him the best in his new path to attaining his dream.
