“The NPP outlined some key policy initiatives such as free SHS, 1 district 1 factory, 1 village 1 dam, 1 constituency, $1m. These paradigm movers cover key areas of our lives such as agriculture and employment… My number one job in this position is therefore to see the implementation of those ones that are relevant to this metropolis.”

Outlining some of the immediate policies, Mr. Sam noted that “…I am going to lead the population, the private sector, the security services and civil society groups in a massive cleanup exercise on 4th April 2017. The assembly will plan and exercise a project of de-silting in preparation for the rainy season. We will as a matter of urgency seek funding to repair damaged street lights to ensure people’s safety at night.”
