My attention has been drawn to a dubious publication circulating on some online portals including ghanaweb on the above caption believed to have come from the Atiwa East NDC Constituency Youth Organizer.

The Holy Bible entreats us at Romans 12:15 to “rejoice with those who rejoice and mourn with those who mourn”. It is therefore in the right direction for the MP who is the mother of the constituency to mourn with bereaved families.

Digesting the malicious propaganda orchestrated by the NDC youth organizer, Hon. Abena Osei Asare was ranked 4th among 275 MPs in Ghana and 2nd among the 33 MPs in the Eastern region.
The report is a public document which all Ghanaians can access.

The NDC trained propagandist also claimed to have seen nothing being done by the Hon. Deputy Finance Minister in the constituency. For the avoidance of doubt, let me point out a few projects to the propaganda blinded young man.

Hon. Abena Osei Asare in her capacity as MP has constructed 20 mechanized boreholes in the constituency which towns such as Anyinam, Ankaase, Frimponso, Sekyere, Napa, Moseaso, Kadewaso, Awosoase, Akutuase and among other communities have benefitted.

We can also boast of Six (6) furnished toilet facility compounds which communities such as Adasewase, Anyinam, Sekyere SDA SHS, Abakoase, and Kadewaso have benefitted.

We can boast of 4 CHP compounds, – Mampong, Fremponso, Ahankrasu and Tiawia. 2 health centres -20-bed maternity block at Anyinam clinic and new health centre at Jejeti.

Hon. Abena Osei Asare has as well given 16 tricycles to the 16 electoral areas in the district, lobbied for Ehiawoanwu electricity connection, Anyinam township roads, Awosoase-Krobom road, Anyinam -Adasewase road and a 6 unit classroom block at Ehiawoanwu to replace the dilapidated one.

Consistently she has given start-up equipment of sewing machines and hairdryers to all who complete their vocational trade in these areas.

Annual distribution of examination equipment to BECE candidates, information centre equipment at Kwakwaduam, distribution of spraying machines and Agric inputs to farmers, lobbied for a Getfund project for Adasawase Presby KG building, lobbied for 41 computers and accessories from GIFEC to SDA SHS at Sekyere, 2 bus stops at Ankaase junction, and the construction of sheds at the main Sekyere toll booth for traders. Anyinam-Adasawase road, just to mention a few.

All these projects and others are physically visible and our hardworking media are respectfully invited to come and testify it.

The few achievements mentioned are among many which Hon. Abena Osei Asare has done including job opportunities for the youth in various government institutions.

It, therefore, comes with no surprise that the Atiwa East MP who doubles as Deputy Finance Minister was ranked the best female MP in Ghana by the University of Ghana survey on the performance of MPs.

People are voted to power to serve and Hon. Abena Osei Asare is doing exactly what the people of Atiwa East want her to do.

Let’s stop destructing a well-focused leader. Rather, let’s rally behind her to do her best for the collective good of the constituency.

This is a press statement so those who would publish can use it as it is.
