The Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Akosua Frema Opare, has assured her constituents, especially the University of Ghana community, about her intentions to continue to seek their socio-economic welfare even after she ceases to be their parliamentary representative from January 7, 2013.
Mrs Frema Opare is not seeking re-election in the upcoming December polls, and some of her constituents fear she is quitting politics and so will not be in a position to offer them continued support.
But, addressing members of the University of Ghana Association Of Psychology Students Wednesday, the affable MP assured: ?I?m not quitting politics, even though I?m not seeking re-election as an MP. I will continue to be politics and continue to support you, as a former student, lecturer and Head of Department in this institution.?
She was speaking at a ceremony where she presented a set of computer and its accessories to the Psychology students, to redeem a pledge she had previously made to them.
Mrs Frema Opare noted that providing quality education at all levels would be enhanced with the requisite resources, stressing: ?Looking at the increasingly changing dynamics of contemporary education, I don?t think access to computers and the internet should be allowed to become a constraint to learning.?
She called on the leadership of institutions of higher learning to join the crusade for national cohesion and unity, expressing worry about the level of polarisation in the country at the moment.
?All of us have to join the crusade to save our dear nation from the current tension, which has the potential to lead us into chaos if appropriate steps are not put in place to curb it,? Chairperson of the NPP?s Conflict Resolution Committee appealed.
The MP had earlier in the day been honoured by the University of Ghana Business School for her contribution to the growth of the school, during the launch of the school?s 50th anniversary celebration.
The accompanying citation read: ?The sun does not linger in the sky forever, yet traces of its presence are felt long after the shadows set in. As an MP, you would not remain in your seat forever, but your kind deeds have left indelible prints on the sands of time. Tomorrow the world will be a better place not because you drove a BMW or a Cadillac, but because you made a difference in people?s lives.?
