Developments In Central Region Is Unprecedented: Allotey Jacobs

Infrastructural developments currently ongoing in the central region under the National Democratic Congress government lead by President John Dramani Mahama is said to be unprecedented in the history of the region.

The government is said to have invested over $350 Million US Dollars in the building of schools, roads, hospitals and many infrastructural developments in the region to help alleviate the plight of the people and raise their standard of living.

Mr. BernardAllotey Jacobs, the central regional chairman of the NDC, stated this in his remarks at a ceremony held in Cape Coast to inaugurate various committees of the NDC in the region.

Mr. Allotey said though the government is faced with power crises at the moment, the kinds of developmental projects currently going on across the whole country and the central region in particular, cannot be over looked.

He said members of the opposition NPP who thought that the NDC can never build the Kotokoraba Market and the Cape Coast Sports Stadium, can now attest to the fact that these two projects have seen the day of light.

He added that the government was doing a lot for the region and therefore charged members of the NDC to use every single opportunity they get to preach to the electorates about the good works of PresidentMahama.

“Meet the electorates’ one on one and explain matters to them. Politics is all about talking. If you talk wisely, people listen and if they accept what you tell them, they will respond positively and salute you with their tombs” Chairman Allotey explained.

He cautioned members of the NDC not to be over confident because politics has its own dynamics. He advised members of the various committees not to wait till it’s about six or three months to the elections before they would start executing their tasks.

Mr. Aquinas TawiahQuansah, the regional minister for his part entreated both old and new executives of the party to continue to work together in the interest of the party. He said an old leopard is always a leopard and therefore called on the members of his party to give maximum respect to anyone who has served the party in any form in the past as well as those who are in the helm of affairs now.

He charged members of the committees to avoid any favouritism and bias when dealing with issues.

On the upcoming parliamentary primaries of the party, he reminded those who have the desire to contest to follow the lay down procedures of the party to avoid any unnecessary confrontation and confusion.

In all, eight committees were inaugurated. They were Legal and Constitutional, Political, Research and Organisational committees.

The rest were Communications, Youth Wing, Finance and Women’s Wing Committees.
