The Member of Parliament for the Wa West constituency Hon. Rtd Supt Peter Lanchene Toobu as part of activities in gracing his birthday at Wechiua, capital of the Wa West constituency (district) launched a “keep Wechiau Cleen campaign” after embarking on a clean up exercise.
The Member of Parliament says dinning and wining as well as cutting of cakes as part of his birthday celebration would not add up anything positive to the lives of his constituents hence his move to ensuring that the constituency is tidy up with the implementation of the keep Wechiua clean campaign.
“I believe that cleanliness is next to Godliness I came home to do this because I don’t want to blow the kindles again for this year, I am not cutting the cakes again, there is no party for this year, what I have in celebration of my birthday is to join the people of Wechiua to launch a campaign that we call keep Wechiua clean, I believe in you and I believe that this campaign will succeed”.
The MP further added that Wechiua is the capital town of the constituency and was optimistic that if Wechiua looks clean, the entire constituency will be seemed as been neat therefore his move to gracing his special birthday at Wechiua on Tuesday June 8, 2021.
“I am in Wechiua because Wechiua signifies Wa West, if Wechiua is doing well Wa West is doing well, if Accra is doing well Ghana is presumed to be doing well” he stated.
The Member of Parliament also stressed the need for constituents to support police officers in flashing out miscreants who are committing a lot of atrocities especially armed robbery on major routes within the Wa West constituency. Hon.
Lanchene in furtherance revealed his intention of using his outfit to advocate for more police officers and logistics to be sent to the Wa district to help nip the activities of the criminals in the bud.
“I came around and I heard a lot of complains about insecurity in the district, security is a shared responsibility and I am pleading with all people in Wa West, collaborate with the police, collaborate with the arm forces, let’s flash out this evil called robbery. Together we can flash them out, two or three people can not hold us to ransom, four or five people cannot hold us to ransom, if majority of us decide to be quite the few people who are giving us trouble will try to run over the district but that is not possible, together we can fight this battle and win, I am assuring you I will do the best that I can to support the police to fight this battle. They are talking about personnel I will take it up, they are talking about logistics I will take it up. But they are talking about the collaboration with civil society they are talking about collaboration with people in town, I plead with you collaborate with the police give them information, share with them and I am sure this battle is a winnable battle” Lanchene added.
