The Member of Parliament for Gomoa West, Mr Francis Kojo Arthur, has expressed concern about the show of impunity in the name of democracy and said democracy did not mean going on radio to insult people including the President.

He appealed to radio stations to help check the negative practice.

Mr Arthur said this at the outdooring of Nana Kwakwa Afful Paintsil VI, Nana Abena Okomah Kwakowah II, Chief and Queen respectively of Gomoa Kokofu.

Also out-doored at the ceremony was Nana Esi Nyarkoaa II, Queen of Asona clan of Kokofu.

He said Ankamu/Afranse road had been awarded on contract and President John Atta Mills would cut a sod for work to begin when he visits the Central Region.

Mr Arthur said electricity supply in Gomoa West Constituency is being upgraded to enable the people to establish cottage industries.

He said the contract to construct a bridge on River Narkwa Ochie at Olefleku had been terminated due to the delay of work by the contractor and rewarded to another contractor.

Mr Theophilus Aidoo-Mensah, Gomoa West District Chief Executive, appealed to the people of Kokofu to support the chief and the queens “to deliver.”

He said the Assembly had provided the community with a Kindergarten and 50 bags of cement for construction of a shed.

Mr Aidoo-Mensah said construction of a six-unit school block from the GETFund had been approved for the community.

Nana Kwakwah Afful Paintsil said education and health would be his priority areas and appealed to the people to ensure that their children were enrolled in school.

He urged those who had not registered with the National Health Insurance Scheme to do so without delay.
