The Member of Parliament for Subin, Mr. Isaac Osei has taken his door-to-door campaign to Asafo, one of his strong holds within his constituency.

He interacted with many residents and urged them to reject the incompetent NDC government by voting massively for the NPP in the December general elections to win power, so they will be able to continue with the good works of President Kufuor.

He was mobbed by some enthusiastic youth who continually chanted ‘Free Education’ to register their desire for the NPP’s Free SHS flagship program.

He took the opportunity to explain to residents the importance of the Free SHS which has been promised by the NPP, and also did emphasize that, aside the absorption of cost; quality and accessibility are important ingredients of the program, thus the introduction of the Teachers First Policy and the plan to build cluster schools in areas where there are none.

He told them the program will immediately take-off once Nana Akufo-Addo is sworn-in as President on 7th January 2013, to enable students benefit from the policy in the next academic year which begins in September of the same year.

At the Asafohene’s palace, the assembly woman for the area, Madam Akua Afriyie, mentioned that the Member of Parliament provided school desks andtables, and computers for the Awere basic school, and rehabilitated some classrooms.

Madam Akua Afriyie further stated that Mr. Isaac Osei personally financed the provision of culverts around the Asafohene’s palace.

In addition to that, the Member of Parliament provided street lights to some parts of the Asafo Electoral Area. She told the gathering that, they do not know anyone else except their Member of Parliament, Mr. Isaac Osei.

Later in the evening, Mr. Isaac Osei met with some polling station executives at the Dadiesoaba Electoral Area and reiterated the need for them to work extra hard by intensifying their door-to-door campaign to ensure a first round victory for the party in the upcoming elections. He advised that, their campaign message to the electorate should be centered on three thematic areas: "FREE SHS, IMPROVED HEALTHCARE and EMPLOYMENT FOR THE YOUTH".

He also touched on the collapse of the NHIS especially in the Ashanti Region and the inherent weaknesses of the capitation grant scheme which is currently being piloted in the most populous region of the country, and encouraged them not to lose hope yet; the next NPP government led by Nana Akufo-Addo, God-willing, will restore its quality and easy accessibility.

The assembly man for the area, Mr. Adusei, thanked Mr. Isaac Osei for the provision of street lights and the new bore-hole which has just been built to improve access to good drinking water to the people of the area. He said Dadiesoaba has benefited from the MP’s scholarship scheme which currently covers about 220 students in second-cycle and tertiary institutions.

He was accompanied by the Chairman of the Constituency, Alhaji Baba Abdulai, some constituency executives, the area coordinator andmembers of his campaign team.
