Mr Obeng Nkum, Member of Parliament for Agona West, has urged his constituents to be circumspect in their utterances after the verdict of the Supreme Court is pronounced.

He said supporters of the National Democratic Congress in the area who are thinking he would mediate for their release when they are caught for fomenting trouble, should eschew that notion.

Mr Nkum gave the warning in an interview with newsmen at Agona Nkum.

He said there was the need to be mindful of one’s language when they engaged in political discussions and debates since some utterances could generate violence.

The MP appealed to all in the Constituency to stay away from any acts that would not bring growth and development into the country adding that “let us do all that would sustain the peace and tranquility that the country is currently enjoying.”

Mr Nkum said during his campaign, he pledged that when given the mandate to represent them in Parliament, he would solicit the help of non-governmental organisations to help the healthcare providers in the area.

He said in this regard, the constituency has been divided into four zones where medical teams from outside the country would give free medical screening to the people.

Mr Nkum said the zones are Nkum, Abodom, Kwaman and Agona Swedru areas.

He said some basic habits like washing of hands with soap before eating, keeping the environment clean by weeding their surroundings, de-silting choked gutters and drains would go a long way to help prevent the numerous deaths that occur in the society annually.
