Assemblywoman appeals for second term

Osiem (E/R), Feb. 14, GNA – Ms Comfort   Afriyie, Assemblywoman for Bonwire North Electoral Area, Ashanti Region, had appealed to the electorate to vote for candidates who had demonstrated the capacity to deliver on their mandate.

She said she was the first woman to be elected as assemblywoman for the electoral area since the introduction of the district assembly concept and that her performance for the past four years had surpassed all the assembly members who had represented the area at the Ejisu-Juaben Municipal Assembly.

She called on the electorate to look at her performance and elect her for a second term.

Ms Afriyie said this in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at Osiem in the Eastern Region as the special guest at the convention of the Saviour Church of Ghana.

She said for over 10 years some communities in her electoral area had been making efforts to get connected to the national grid without success, but after her election, she was able to make the necessary contacts for those communities to get connected.

Ms Afriyie said another achievement was to get a huge refuse dump situated at the centre   of the Bonwire Community removed to the relief of all members of the electoral area.

She said she was also able to raise funds to have the Bonwire Anglican Primary School block, which was seriously leaking, reroofed to aid teaching and learning.

Ms Afriyie said she supported 16 young girls with sewing machines to learn dressmaking and had six other ladies trained in hairdressing, who she supported with equipment to enhance their work.
