The items donated to Nkawkaw and Abirem included Bags of Rice, Gallons of Oil, Nose Masks, Bottles and Sachets water. These and other Constituencies in Kwahu have vowed to maximize votes for the NPP.

On his part, the Parliamentary Candidate and the incumbent MP for Abirem Constituency John Osei Frimpong told journalists “We are much impressed about his support to the party just after the Primaries. We’ve heard about his contributions made to some other Constituencies and today he is here to donate to us as well, this is really beautiful and I must say this will go into the party’s record because he has served for long”.
He said: “We’ll ask the party to acknowledge you by keeping all these records for the future”.
On behalf of the party leadership at Abirem Constituency, Mr. Osei Frimpong thanked him for the support and wished him well in all his endeavours.
