West Akim Municipal Director of the National Commission on Civic Education (NCCE), Ms. Modesta Annie Sapaty says that Parliamentary Candidates are not responsible for developmental projects as assumed by many Ghanaians.     

She explained that Parliamentary Candidates were only representatives of the various constituencies and their job was to help make decisions to benefit their constituencies.

Adding that Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies were responsible for developmental projects.     

The NCCE Director made the remarks at a Town Hall Meeting organized by the Justice and Peace Commission in collaboration with the NCCE at Asamankese.

According to her, due to ignorance, many people wrongfully accuse parliamentary candidates of not building infrastructure projects.

She advised the citizenry to demand accountability from the Assemblies and not parliamentarians on community development.     

The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Lower West Akim, Mr. Seth Oduro-Boadu, urged the public to stay away from violence and maintain peace before, during and after the December 7 elections.
