A 49 year-old hairdresser, Ms. Becky Hesse Lartey, is contending three men for the assembly member position in the Sakaman Electoral Area, Greater Accra Region, in the March 3 District Assembly Elections.

Poor drainage system, security concerns, difficulties in garbage collection and the large number of deprived children are some of the challenges Ms. Lartey has identified in the area and said would tackle with urgency when given the nod.

The prospective assemblywoman, who said she had lived in the area for about 45 years, would be counting on the support of the Member of Parliament for Ablekuma North, the Sub-Metro, the Hydrology Department of the Ministry of Water Resources, Works and Housing and an International Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) to solve these problems.

Ms. Lartey stated these in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Accra, to discuss her vision for Sakaman Electoral Area.

She stressed that Sakaman was a low-lying area and, therefore, prone to floods anytime it rained heavily, thus putting the lives and property of residents in danger.

Everything possible, she said, would, therefore, be done to solve the problem through intense lobbying at the appropriate quarters to make life comfortable for the people.

Neighbourhood watchdog committees, Ms. Lartey said, would be formed in collaboration with the Dansoman and Odorkor Police for Commands to check armed robbers who terrorised residents from time to time.

The contestant said as a result of the high cost allegedly charged by the waste management company for refuse collection in the electoral area, a lot of waste was dumped into drains by those who could not afford the fee, thus choking them..

To resolve this, she said, she would, table a motion at the Assembly for the company to be invited for negotiation towards reducing the charge.

Regular clean-up exercises involving de-silting choked gutters and clearing of weedy areas in the communities would be organized in collaboration with unit committee members to keep the environments clean, she said.

To show that she meant business, Ms. Lartey said, she had with the assistance of some volunteers started de-silting some choked gutters in some communities.

The poor road network in the area, she also said, would be addressed vigorously by lobbying through the Member of Parliament and the Sub-Metro.

Ms. Lartey, therefore, appealed to the electorate to elect her so that she could push her development agenda through.
