Speaking in an interview on Takoradi-based radio station, Connect FM, Paa Kwesi Moses said the constituency is lagging in terms of development with several other infrastructure wasting away. He mentioned the Center for National Culture as one of such infrastructure wasting away because of neglect.
“Sekondi is not lost, we shall rescue it for the greatness it deserves,” he stated.
Paa Kwesi Moses promised to embark on an aggressive tourism drive that will transform Sekondi as a preferred tourist destination in Ghana. Above all, he’s promised to invest in the human capital, particularly in vocational areas to create jobs and wealth.
