The Member of Parliament facilitated the construction of a modern astroturf, community centre, 15-kilometre asphalt road, 15 community boreholes and provided educational materials to pupils in the Constituency.

He also paid the tuition fees of 300 students from the Constituency enrolled in some tertiary education institutions across the country as well as providing financial and technical support to women groups engaged in small and medium-scale enterprises to expand their businesses.

He called for unity among the rank and file of the Party, noting that with unity and tenacity of purpose, they could retain the seat for the Party with a bigger margin on December 7.

‘Just like the Elephant of La Cote d’lvoire triumphed over the Eagles during the 2023 AFCON so, the elephant Party in Ghana will defeat
the eagle on the December 7 Election,’ Mr Jinapor said, amid cheers from the enthusiastic NPP supporters and sympathizers.

Mr Jinapor noted that the NPP Flagbearer Dr Mahamudu Bawumia had vision for the nation, which aligned with the fourth industrial revolution- ICT and digitisation, which the world’s economy was gearing towards.

He took a swipe at the NDC Flagbearer and former President John Mahama for failing to resolve prolonged power outages during his presidency and asked on how his (Mahama) much touted ’24-hour economy’ policy could support Ghanaians.

‘Even within the day, former President Mahama under his presidency, could not supply power to the people of Ghana and many small-scale businesses collapsed, and so, how can he supply power to you during the night,’ Mr Jinapor asked, amid cheers from the audience.
