An aspiring Assembly Member for Adukrom Nima in the Ashanti Region, Nana Adabor Ibrahim Issah Ampim popularly known as Honorable Aponkye has promised to provide free breakfast to each of his constituents when voted into office, ABC News can report.

According to him, the provision of breakfast is a right every youth in the country must enjoy in accordance with Article 28(3) of the 1992 Constitution under the Fundamental Human Rights.

Apart from providing free breakfast, Hon. Aponkye also promised to construct a biogas toilet facility for every household within his jurisdiction, provide free tricycles to deal with sanitation as well as job opportunities that will pay GHS 20 daily for the ‘boys’ in the community, among others.

Speaking in an interview with Host of State Affairs on GHone TV, Hon. Aponkye stated that if the people of Adukrom Nima vote for him, he would also ensure that Muslim kids enjoy free basic pre-school education, popularly known as Makaranta.

“One house one biogas toilet, free Aboboyaa to deal with sanitation, free makaranta education, free breakfast for every morning, I’m going to do it, a free job for the boys, every day 20 cedis for salary. So far as I’m in government, I can go to every centre, every office of Ministry or MP or MCE.

“If it is not easy, the constitution says they should do it for me. The Fundamental Human Right, when you read it up till article 28 (3), you’ll see it that the state should provide breakfast for the youth like homemade porridge and tea,” he noted.

In actual fact, the 1992 Constitution of the Republic does not capture any such provision as part of the freedoms and rights a citizen can enjoy as a Fundamental Human Right.

In an earlier interview granted to Accra-based Joy News, Hon. Aponkye indicated, “In this constituency, everybody likes me; old man, old woman, children, boys and girls, ladies, in fact, all the individuals in this area love me”

As of the time of this publication, he was number one on trending stories on Twitter in Ghana with over 2,400 tweets to his name.
