The newly elected Member of Parliament for Awutu-Senya West Constituency, Madam Hannah Tetteh, has urged supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to lead lives worthy of emulation to attract more people into the party.

She said winning elections was by numbers and that when this was done, more people will join the party to make it win the 2016 elections.

Madam Tetteh made the call when she organized a Get-Together for the Constituency/Ward executives and party supporters in Awutu-Senya West constituency at Obrachere in appreciation of their hard work that led to her victory in the December elections.

She promised to work in accordance with structures of the NDC Party, keeping in mind the principles of accountability, probity and transparency towards the development of the area.

She advised that with the elections over, they should see themselves as one people and contribute their quota towards the development of the area.

The MP said her doors were opened to receiving good and fruitful suggestions, advice and contributions that would help move the constituency forward.

Madam Tetteh said education was the topmost on her agenda since it is key to the development of every country.

She urged the youth to concentrate on their education to enable them to become functional in the society.

Nana David Labie, immediate past Member of Parliament for the area, thanked the people for supporting him during his tenure of office and promised to cooperate with Madam Hannah Tetteh to continue the development of the area.

Mr Sampson Armah Abaquaye, District Chief Executive for the area, disclosed that the Assembly has set aside 20 per cent of its share of the Common Fund to support brilliant but needy students to further their education.
