CPP Candidate Dares To Win Tema Central Seat

Mr Nenyi Pobee Sam, Tema Central parliamentary candidate for the Convention People’s Party (CPP), says phe will be the voice of all residents when voted as the Member of Parliament (MP) for the area.


Mr Sam speaking to the Ghana News Agency said, the constituency currently had nobody talking on its behalf even though it had an MP.
“Am appealing to the electorate to consider voting for me as the MP, and I will restore the voice”, he said.

He stated that even though the incumbent MP, Mr Kofi Brako, who is seeking re-election had embarked on some personal projects in the constituency, his voice was conspicuously missing in lobbying for developmental projects for the area.

According to him, he would score the sitting MP’s performance, four out of ten, since he had failed to fully speak for the residents of Tema Central.

He said Tema was the heartbeat of the CPP and therefore, he with the support of the party, would ensure that defunct companies and industries established by Dr Kwame Nkrumah would be revived through public private partnerships.

The revival of these companies, he noted, would provide the numerous unemployed youth in Tema Central with jobs to do.

Mr Sam indicated that he would also create additional jobs through the planting of high yielding coconut trees along the streets of Tema Central.

He explained that the coconut which could be harvested within eight months, could be sold by residents to earn some income.

Mr Sam announced that an MP’s secretariat would be established by him to research and collate data on the available job openings and other opportunities in the area and subsequently connect skilled unemployed people to them.

He further stated that he would use his personal income to establish a purified water production factory for Persons Living With Disability in his constituency.

The CPP candidate said he would present the product (Challenge Water) from that factory to parliament and lobby for its usage during official functions.

He also promised to build a four-storey building to house the increasing number of squatters scattered in the constituency.
The squatters, he said, would be required to pay a small fee to use the facility explaining that the amount would be used to maintain the structure.

On sanitation, the parliamentary candidate stated that he would zone the communities in Tema Central and establish a fund which would be used to manage the sanitation situation.

According to him, the fund would be managed by a committee headed by him with members drawn from religious establishments, educational institutions and other stakeholders in the communities.

Mr Sam said he would put a seed money of 100 cedis into the said fund and community members would be levied to pay between two and ten cedis which would be used to purchase tricycles to convey refuse from houses to a mini transfer station and subsequently to the Kpone landfill site.
On education, he gave the assurance that a mathematics and science clinic would be established in the Constituency and help of renowned mathematics teachers would be sought for students in the area.

He explained this would boost the interest of students in the subjects as well as help schools in Tema Central to score better grades in the BECE and WASSCE.

Mr Sam said when elected the MP, he would interact with management of Tema General Hospital which is located in the constituency and seek support from companies to better resource the facility.
The CPP candidate is a 39-year old trained marketing officer, who is not married and has no children.

Mr Sam, who is the founder of Planters Prayer Cathedral in Tema, is determined to win about 70 per cent of the votes to be cast in Tema Central during the December 7 general election.

He is contesting the seat with the incumbent MP, Mr Kofi Brako of the NPP and Miss Ebi Bright of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
