Ashie Moore unconcerned about fierce battle for Adenta seat


The Adenta Parliamentary Seat which is currently occupied by Hon. Ashie Moore is rearing to be the hotbed for some National Democratic Congress (NDC) aspirants since nominations were opened last Thursday.

The sitting Member of Parliament (MP) Hon. Ashie Moore is running for his second term and in contention with other new aspirants including Adamu Ramadan, former Youth and Sports Minister Mallam Issah and former MCE for Adentan, Kakra Vanlare. A former MP Kwadwo Adu-Asare has also joined the race.

In an interview with the Adenta MP to elicit his views on the stiff competition facing him, Hon Ashie Moore said he is unperturbed about the context because his good works and the development he has brought to the Constituents of Adenta in the last four years will speak for him at the primaries.

According to him, the Adentan constituency has seen massive progress in all areas since he took over from Adu Asare in January 2013.

He added he has served the constituency with honesty and humility and has worked hard to fulfil the promises he made ahead of the 2012 parliamentary elections.

Among some of the achievements touted by the MP include support for over 200 brilliant but needy students under a special educational scheme. He added that over 40 laptop computers and 5,000 note books have also been distributed to selected private and public schools in the Adentan municipality.

The MP also added that he has re-graded over 11 different roads in the constituency including the Roman Junction to Animal Research last stop link and the Botwe Old Town road.

He also noted he has also dredged several drains in the constituency at a cost of GHC 12,000.00.
and has also solved the perennial water problems in the constituency under his tenure.
Adenta currently receives about 40,000,000 gallons of water daily.

The NDC goes to the polls to elect new MPs on November 7 ahead of the 2016 presidential and parliamentary elections.
