The National Democratic Congress (NDC) says it will establish National Street Lights Development Authority (NSLDA) when given the nod come December 7.

National Chairman for the party Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, who announced this, said the Authority would manage the street lights levies paid by electricity consumers to properly maintain the street lights in the country.

Addressing party supporters at a campaign tour of the New Edubiase constituency, he said the Authority will have offices in the districts and employ electricians to repair and fix problems on street lights in the communities.

Mr Ofosu Ampofo, who accompanied Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyeman, Running Mate for the party on her six-day campaign tour of the Ashanti region added that the next NDC government will provide flexible loan schemes to small scale traders and free primary health care for the people.

He said the US$10billion Big Push agenda, as announced in their manifesto, will boost the Ghanaian economy by providing jobs as well as improve infrastructure.

Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyeman also stressed the need for peace ahead of the December elections.

She said NDC is a party that embraces everybody.

She further called on party supporters in New Edubiase to work hard to bring the party back to power in order to continue with the development started under the previous NDC government.

Mr Abdul Salam Adams, the NDC parliamentary candidate for New Edubiase, urged the supporters to work hard in their campaigns to reclaim the seat which was lost to the NPP in 2016.
