As part of her ‘People First Campaign’, Sheila Bartels, on Sunday visited Tipa to ascertain for herself the living conditions and challenges faced by residents of that suburb. She was accompanied by the Ablekuma North MCE, Hon. Kofi Ofori (Bella). Other members of the entourage that visited the community included Hon. Patrick Kpakpo, an Assembly member and Rebecca Allotey Pappoe, a concerned citizen.
After having a look at the obvious challenges of the people, Sheila and the MCE went a step further to interact with a number of residents who expressed their dissatisfaction with their current living conditions. Some of the issues highlighted by the residents included; poor street lighting, poor sanitation and perennial flooding.
While addressing the concerns of the residents, the MCE assured them of swift response to their issues. He also informed them that through the resourcefulness of Sheila, the assembly had taken stock of 100 street lamps which will be deployed and installed at some of the most poorly lit areas of the constituency.
For her part, Sheila pledged her continuous support to the development of the constituency. She indicated her innate desire to continue interacting with the residents and other constituents to unearth whatever challenges they face and also partner them to arrive at suitable and lasting solutions for those challenges.
