Assembly member aspirant from Adukrom Nima in the Ashanti region, Nana Adabor Ibrahim Issah Ampim, has promised to provide free daily breakfast for the youth in his electoral area if voted into power.
‘Hon Aponkye’, as he is popularly known, explained he would solicit for funds from the Central government to buy corn dough for porridge and tea bags enough to feed the entire youth in his constituency.
According to him, his decision comes from the passion to help the unemployed youth in his area in the bid to deter them from becoming social deviants.
He said it was constitutionally possible to fulfill his promises, as they amount to fundamental human rights, specifically the right to live.
Hon. Aponkye added that the free breakfast policy is not the only one. He said, if voted into power, he will provide one house one biogas toilet, free dustbins on all the streets and free canopies and chairs for every ceremony among others.
Explaining the rationale behind his nickname in an interview on GHOne TV, he said ‘Aponkye’ (goat) is the smartest of all animals, hence the selection of the name.
