The Deputy Chief Executive Officer in charge of Finance and Administration of the National Youth Authority (NYA) and an aspiring parliamentary candidate of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Adentan constituency, Madam Akosua Manu, has pledged her commitment to addressing healthcare imbalance in her constituency.
She has, therefore, vowed to champion enhanced healthcare services for constituents,, irrespective of their political party affiliations as well as prioritize their overall welfare.
Speaking at a health screening exercise, ‘Kozie Cares Medical Outreach’, at Otanor, Madam Akosua Manu emphasised the importance of regular check-ups, and accessible and quality healthcare for residents of Adentan. She believes that healthcare is a fundamental right that should not be compromised and is determined to work tirelessly to ensure that the healthcare needs of the people she aspires to represent are met.
The healthcare exercise includes check-ups and free national health insurance registration and renewals for 16 Electoral Areas in Adentan. The health drive began on Thursday, September 14, 2023, and is scheduled to conclude on Friday, September 22, 2023.
The areas covered by this exercise include Otanor, Nmai Djorn, Adjiringano, Ogbojo, Nii Ashale East and West, New Adentan East and West, Man-Hee, Gbentanaa North and South, New Legon, Loose, Amrahia Marhejor, among others.
She further stressed that this effort is aimed at placing a premium on health and adequately preparing for the tasks ahead of the party. She also emphasised the importance of regular check-ups, which many Ghanaians often neglect, and her approach to bringing healthcare services to the doorstep of the people.
Additionally, she disclosed that eye screening will take place at the Adenta station on Saturday as part of the ongoing healthcare initiative. This screening, she said, is intended to address the issue of perennial Apollo infections and ensure the well-being of her constituents.
On the upcoming parliamentary elections, Kozie stressed the significance of conducting a clean campaign to unite the party ahead of victory. The Deputy NYA CEO also cautioned fellow flagbearer aspirants to maintain a fair and transparent campaign.
