An aspiring Assembly member for Kotokoli/ Kwansakrom electoral area in the Agona East Constituency in the Central Region, Maxwell Kirk Nyarkoh has advised colleague Assembly members, both incumbent and aspiring not to indulge in a campaign of condemning and backbiting other contestants, but rather inform the electorates what they are capable of doing, when they are given the nod as assembly member.
According to him, the situation is unhealthy and does not urger well for development at the local level.
He gave the advice in an interview with Ghananews247.com on his ambition to contest for the position of Assembly member for the area.
He hinted that more often than not, some contestants turn to denigrate other competitors when they go on the campaign trail, instead of telling the electorates what they will do when they are voted into office.
He pointed out that his area faces serious challenges, such as a lack of potable sources of drinking water, poor roads and poor sanitation.
He assured that when voted as the Assembly member, his first priority will be to tackle and promote education among children of school-going age, particularly those in rural communities.
He disclosed that already, he is already working in collaboration with some nongovernmental organizations and benevolent individuals who have assisted him in providing street lights and boreholes for deprived communities in the area, as well as roofing the public places of convenience at Domoki, one of the farming communities in the area.
A graphic designer and product of Swedru Senior High School, Mr. Maxwell Kirk Nyarkoh is said to have trained some of the youth in the area in graphic designing such as billboard creation, T-shirts branding and other forms of art work as a means of creating employable skill for them.
