Newly sworn in MP for Abetifi, Bryan Acheampong has said he will spend the next couple of months to provide water for over 80 communities in the constituency.
He said many of his constituents drink from rivers and streams and is committed to ensuring potable water is extended to all communities ahead of this year’s polls.
The new lawmaker emerged victorious in last Saturday’s by-election held in the constituency following the death of the late Peter Wiafe Peprah.
The late Peter Wiafe Peprah died of cardiac arrest at the 37 Military Hospital last May and would be laid to rest over the weekend.
His successor was sworn into office Wednesday, July 2016.
He told Kasapafmonline.com on the sidelines that the only way he can help develop Abetifi and the Kwahu area is by representing them in Parliament.
“People feel that Kwahu is an urban constituency. Abetifi is a deprived community and only 15 to 20% have access to water and good road”, he said.
“I am in Parliament as an advocate to end these things. Water, sanitation, roads and employment are the key reasons why run for this election”, he added.
Bryan said real development will come to his people now that they have given him the mandate to represent them in the National Assembly.
He further said he will learn fast the ropes of parliamentary business to become a useful lawmaker to his party and his people.
