Energy Minister, John Peter Amewu has promised residents of Hohoe constituency to give better their livelihoods should he be voted into Parliament come December 7.
In an interview, Mr Amewu said he will implement an initiative dubbed “One Family, One Opportunity” to give all his constituents equal access to various life transforming programmes.
According to him, families in the Hohoe constituency should expect job opportunities, educational scholarships, apprenticeship among others when re-elected.
“Politics is about development and I am giving you a promise that I would touch individual lives positively if voted into power. And we shall continue the 1 family – 1 opportunity agenda if voted into power.
“This would be a great opportunity for my people to be economically stable, have some go to any school of their choices to the highest [level] and many more,” he said.
Mr Amewu who has initiated quite a number of projects in the constituency since the party won in 2016 seeks the mandate of the people to represent them in parliament for more developmental projects.
He believes that the Akufo-Addo led administration has accomplished more than what any other administration has ever done for the people of Hohoe, and must therefore be given a second term to do even more.
Residents who were excited about the promise lauded Mr Amewu for his contribution to the region.
“The initiative is a good one and workable and we only hope that Amewu wins so he can fulfil those promises made to us,” a resident commented.
Meanwhile, Mr Amewu has funded the training of some 50 drivers on a 4-day intensive course by National Vocational Training Institute (NVTI) defensive driving department with subsequent batches preparing to go for the training as well.
The aim of the training is to give drivers the opportunity to have permanent jobs in both the private and public sectors as well and help them own their own cars through the Microfinance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC) upon completion.
