NPP Steps Up Campaign In Ho

Dr Archibald Yao Letsa, New Patriotic Party (NPP) Ho-Central Parliamentary Candidate, has stepped up his campaign, with forays into 13 communities in the constituency. The communities are Tanyigbe, Takla, Hodzo, Nyive, Atikpui, Shia, Klave, Hoe, Matse, Taviefe, Ziave, Klefe and Sokode. A statement signed by the Mr Kojo Ampofo, Press-Secretary of the Ho-Central NPP, said the thrust of Dr Letsa’s message was tackling the extensive poverty in those areas, through pragmatic rural development policies. The statement said the development policies would be youth-focused entrepreneurship promotions to give livelihoods to young people. It said Dr Letsa, a medical doctor and entrepreneur, was accompanied by his wife, Victoria Letsa and Mr Ohene Frimpong, NPP Ho-Central Constituency Chairman, and as they went on their rounds they emphasised the NPP flagship message of free Senior High School. The statement said Dr Letsa also complained about the near collapse of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) with the promise that the NPP would fix the scheme back to vibrancy when it forms government. It said at every stop, enthusiastic people cheered, shouting the catchphrase “free education, change now”. Dr Letsa is contending for the Ho-Central seat the second time on the NPP ticket. In 2008, his first time, he got 6,228 votes or 11.5 per cent while Captain George Kofi Nfojoh, winning on the NDC ticket, got 47,036 or 87 percent.
