Member of Parliament (MP) for Daffiama, Issah, Busie constituency Hon. Dr. Sabastian Sandare makes a wailing appeal for interventions to grow the area out of poverty.
The Hon. MP, speaking to thebridge news said “the main problem of the area is long poverty – circle. It is generational and we have to break it, it calls for sacrifice.”
And that the situation coupled with obnoxious cultural believes was chasing great men and women of the area to seek greener pastures in the Southern part of the country and most of them hardly returned with development of the area.
Also, he said the double situation of poverty and static cultural believes was responsible for alarming rate of teenage pregnancies and abduction of young school girls for marriage and the ripple effect he said was perpetual “poverty-circle”.
“How long are we going to continue this way? Something must be done.” The Hon. MP queried.
Speaking in his office at the Parliament house, he made a wailing call on prominent sons and daughters of the area to help with their widows’ might to grow the area out of excruciating poverty.
The MP also called on individuals and organizations to support the area in whatever capacity.
Touching on his promises during campaigns which saw him through to the parliament, the Hon. MP said he was fully mindful and was currently advocating for a district hospital for the area and that the area was in dire need of a district hospital than any other facility.
Besides, he said he had huge passion for women and children and he was going to do anything positive within his reach to support women and children; particularly brilliant but needy students.
