President Dramani Mahama’s Abura promise of one house one meter policy is making waves in Abura as well as the political scene.
Paving a way for himself during the anticipated December general elections in Ghana, the incumbent president promised Abura residents that if he wins for a second term in office he will ensure that there is a one house-one meter provision for the residents.
The president said it came to his notice that the people who lived in the region were in dire need of electricity meters.
He noted that several houses share one meter and that makes it difficult during the payment of tariffs.
“I am aware of the challenge of electricity connection in Abura. A lot of you don’t have meters. Most houses share one meter. So I have directed that 1500 meters be distributed so that every household will have a meter.”
“Your elders have made me aware that your taxi rank is in bad shape. We have given the roads on contract and the contractor will soon begin work to fix the roads.”
The one house, one meter policy seems to appeal more to the people than the one village, one dam policy by the opposition party.
Aside Mahama’s Abura promise of one house one meter policy, the president also used the opportunity to introduce Kobby Acheampong to the electorate. Kobby Acheampong is a Cape Coast North Parliamentary aspirant. He urged the people to vote him in as a lawmaker.
Mahama says he needs the second term in office to complete what he had already started with regards to the nation’s development.
The President, having promised the people a peaceful and transparent election, concluded by acknowledging that the outcome of the election is totally dependent on God.
“It is God who enthrones. All power belongs to God… I am optimistic that by the grace of God, that NDC 2016, 7th December, NDC will emerge victorious.”
