A female Patron of the New Patrotic Party (NPP) and an active member of the party in the Tema East Constituency, Melody Akusika Gbena has donated food items worth thousands of cedis to members of the NASARA group of the party in the Ho West Constituency of the Volta Region.
The donation on Friday at the Kpedze Central Mosque to support and encourage the Muslims during their fasting and prayer period included 11 bags of rice and two bags of sugar worth over Gh¢2,000.00.
Presenting the items, Madam Gbena commended Ho West NASARA for the commitment and support describing it as a strong wing and pillar of the NPP in the region that played a major role in the party’s victory in 2016.
According to her, knowing the role the group played in the party, she needed to support and encourage them in the season of Ramadan and asked them to pray to Allah for the party, the President, Nana Akufo-Addo and his government and the country as a whole.
The banker and entrepreneur decried the neglect of the Kpedze community in terms of development and assured the people that being a native, “God has blessed me and I want to give back to my community which has been left behind for long. This is the time to revive the Kpedze community.”
She hinted of rolling out initiatives and programmes aimed at developing the area such as entrepreneurship training for women in the region and health screening for all at the Kpedze District Hospital this year and, providing an ambulance to the hospital to aid in effective healthcare delivery.
An elder of the party, Elvis Gbesemetey advised members to support government policies which would bring development to Kpedze.
Deputy NASARA Coordinator for Ho West, Sumaila Baniba who received the items expressed appreciation to the Patron and her team for their kind gesture.
He said the group would continue to support the party and seek the face of Allah for the President and the party for the development of Ho West Constituency and the entire country.
