The National Communications Director of the ruling National Democratic Congress, Solomon Yaw Nkansah has disclosed to residents of New Takoradi that the Mahama led administration will create an enabling environment to allow the youth stowaway when they vote massively for the NDC.
New Takoradi, a fishing community in the constituency is said to have a high number of stowaways in the country.
Solomon Nkansah, who was addressing hundreds of NDC supporters during the campaign launch of the deputy Western Regional Minister and NDC parliamentary candidate for New Takoradi, Alfred Ekow Gyan said during the NPP’s era a huge wall was constructed around the harbour, making it difficult for the youth to stowaway.
He further stated that the NDC has broken the said wall and has expanded the port which will see more ships coming into the harbour, making it easy for the youth to embark on their stowaway.
“What happened was that when a certain party came to power, they built a 13 feet wall making it impossible for the youth to stowaway as they are always busted by the port securities but President Mahama has broken that wall and expanded the port which will allow big ships to come so we can stowaway.
How many of the Takoradi boys were able to stowaway during the NPP era? They were always arrested and prosecuted. There are numerous of our brothers whose parents were unable to travel oversees but with presence of harbours they themselves have been able to travel overseas”,Mr.Nkansah stated.
