A 15-member contingent of Patriotic Ambassadors for Peace (PAP) under the leadership of Katakyie Kwame Opoku Agyemang stormed Ho-West Constituency in the Volta Region on Friday, August 26, 2016 for a 3-day outreach programme. The group was met on arrival by the NPP PC for the Constituency, Mr. Isaac Kwame Adika and the Constituency Financial Secretary at Abutia- Tedeafenui.
After a short introduction, Mr. Adika gave an oral briefing on the political dynamics of Ho-West Constituency, specifically Abutia-Tedeafenui, Abutia-Amesianyakofe, Abutia-Kissiflui, Abutia-Agove (Kpolukofe) and Dededo, where our activities were to be concentrated.
Team PAP divided itself into three groups and developed a movement plan in the selected areas in order to make the political exercise effective. With flyers and posters of Nana Addo and Mr. Adika, PAPers in their specially-designed T-shirts interacted with the people, involved themselves in most of their activities and preached the message of change, peace and hope to them.
At the EP Church at Abutia-Teti, where a mini-harvest was taking place, Team PAP was warmly welcomed by the Pastor and the Congregation, especially when PAPers bought the first four items offered for sale. PAP made a special donation and the members displayed their dancing skills during the collection time to the delight of all and sundry.
At Abutia-Kissiflui, which happens to be the hometown of Mr. I.K. Adika, Team PAP supported an appeal for funds by the ARS in aid of the Church building. Special prayers were offered by the Pastors for our generosity and to make our political mission materialise.
On the way to Ho-West, Team PAP stopped at Dabala in South-Tongu Constituency and made a donation of two bicycles to the Dabala office of the NPP in aid of their Campaign. Similarly, 75 pieces of T-shirts of both Nana Addo and Mr. Adika worth GHC750 were donated to the Parliamentary Candidate for the Health Walk organised by the Volta Youth Alliance (VOYA) at the weekend.
In the last few months, PAP has embarked on a number of outreach programmes in Ahafo-Ano North Constituency in Ashanti, Ningo-Prampram in Greater Accra and Wa Central in the Upper West Regions. It has outlined series of outreaches till December, where items like computers, food, books and clothes would be donated to the Constituency Offices and constituents.
Team PAP would be doing a SWOT analysis on the outreach programme in Ho-West for the PC and the Constituency Executives with the view to improving the level of campaign in the area. However, looking at the favourable response by the constituents, it could be concluded that, Volta Region is poised for change in government this year and will lead the crusade for Nana Addo’s presidency. The people are upset with the NDC government for taking them for granted. To them, enough is enough of the deceit, mediocrity, poverty, high unemployment, bad roads and water problem.
Team PAP would like to appeal to the leadership of the NPP to resource the orphan constituencies with bicycles, motor bikes and pick-ups especially in the Volta Region to lessen the burden of the Parliamentary Candidates. We are also urging the Youth to join PAP to canvass votes for Nana Addo and NPP PCs to enable our beloved party dislodge the incompetent NDC from government in December.
God bless Ghana! God bless Nana Addo!! God bless PAP!!!
