Apirede, Sept. 9,
GNA – Nana Saforo Okoampah, the Chief of Akuapem-Apirede in the Okere
Constituency of the Akuapem North Municipality, says choosing a leader is about
competence and the ability to deliver and not about the heights of the
candidate.

He said the mandate
of a leader to be elected to manage the affairs of Ghana was a huge task that
transcended the mere physique of the candidate.

Speaking at the
inauguration of a four-unit teacher’s bungalow at Apirede, Nana Okoampah called
on the electorate to weigh the campaign messages of the various candidates and
choose a leader who would serve their interests.

The four-unit
bungalow would be allocated to four teachers in the town who commute from other
towns each day to teach at the basic schools at Apirede.

It was constructed
by Mr Dan Botwe, the Member of Parliament for Okere,   from his share of the Common Fund.

The chief,
therefore, admonished the youth to avoid violence and unhealthy debates in the
events leading to the December 7 general election to make it peaceful.

He said the
provision of the bungalows would motivate the teachers to offer their best to
improve education adding; “commuting each day to teach is a disincentive to
education.”

Nana Okoampah commended
the MP for his foresight and living up to his word of creating a ‘teachers
community’, an innovation which he had been championing to improve the
accommodation of teachers.

Another four- unit
bungalow had been provided for Dawu and Awukugua as well as nurses quarters
through the initiative of Mr Dan Botwe to ensure quality and improved service
delivery in those vital areas of national development.
