The NPP Parliamentary Candidate for the Awutu Senya Constituency, Mrs Mavis Hawa Koomson, says defeating the National Democratic Congress parliamentary candidate in the 2012 polls is going to be easy because her constituents are fed up with the NDC.
“Contesting with the current district chief executive, Dr Adams Nuhu, makes it easier because not much has been done under the NDC in the constituency,” she told the Daily Graphic in an interview in Cape Coast.

Mrs Koomson is the only female contesting on the ticket of the NPP in the Central Region.
She said she was committed to the development of the women in the area and would lobby to ensure that women in the area who were mostly traders had access to credit to expand their businesses.
She indicated that helping the women in the area to get loans at relatively lower interest rates was one of her priorities.
Mrs Koomson also stated that one major problem facing the people of the Awutu Senya Constituency was the lack of drainage facilities.
She noted that had seriously worsened the sanitation situation in the area, thus increasing the incidence of preventable diseases in the area.
She said if elected as MP, she would lobby to get the drainage facilities improved significantly to reduce the incidence of diseases in the area.
She noted that the health situation in the area had worsened because the health facility in the area was too small to adequately cater for the number of sick people.
Mrs Koomsoon said as MP, she would lobby for the expansion of the health facility to facilitate the provision of quality health services to the people.
She said the area’s development would be accelerated under an NPP government and urged the people in Awutu Senya Constituency and the Central Region to vote for the NPP.
