As part of efforts to ensure consistent and constructive engagements with my constituents, I have initiated a program called, “community meetings”.
This week, I started with residents of North Suntreso in the Bantama constituency, where I met with Assembly member, opinion leaders, landlords, unit committee members and other local leaders to learn at first hand of their concerns and challenges and how best we can collectively address them.
I used the opportunity, to firstly express my appreciation to the residents for the massive support shown me and the New Patriotic Party in the December 2020 general elections.
Key among the concerns of residents is the poor drainage system that is causing serious erosion in the community.
The North Suntreso community is one of the oldest estates in the country built by the then State Housing Corporation under the administration of President Kwame Nkrumah. The population of the area has increased substantially since but with no corresponding upgrading of the drainage network.
The road network was even worse but the Akufo-Addo administration, as part of the Year of Roads last year, has reconstructed the roads and given the area a facelift.
As Member of Parliament, I will do my utmost best to ensure an improvement in the living conditions of my constituents.
