The Ablekuma North NPP parliamentary candidate, Ms. Sheila Bartels, yesterday paid a courtesy call on the various royal families of Ablekuma North. She was accompanied by a high powered delegation which included the Ablekuma North MCE; Hon. Kofi Ofori, the presiding member – ABNMA; Edmond Lomo; some key members of the campaign team including Alhaji Adamu, John Ortsin (Brother), Mr Opoku-Sika, Serwah Akoto, and the constituency executives including 1st Vice Becky Hesse-Lartey, Secretary Samuel Larbi, Organiser Kwaku Duah, Women’s Organiser Mrs Afia Agyeman Asamoah and a host of other executives.
Together with her team, Sheila visited the Kwashieman, Odorkor, Odorkor Tsuim, Odorkor Official Town, Darkuman, Awoshie (Nii Lafa) and Odorkor Maclean palaces. Her visit was occasioned by the imminent celebration of the Homowo festival in the aforementioned areas.
Speaking through a spokesperson, the NPP parliamentary candidate introduced herself to the royals and indicated her readiness to work hand in hand with the royals and all constituents to boost development in Ablekuma North. She also donated some bags of maize (official crop of the Homowo festival), packs of water and cash to the royals as her contribution to the preparation for Homowo.
The royals expressed their gratitude to Sheila Bartels and her entourage for their kind donation. Some also expressed that they had high hopes for her and believed that much like her father, Hon. Kwamena Bartels, she will foster and develop an excellent relationship with the royals and use it as a catalyst for accelerated development.
