Member of Parliament for Asawase constituency in the Ashanti region, Muntaka Mubarak, has called on the electorate in the region to punish the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) by voting them out of power because they have failed to develop the region despite being the governing party’s stronghold.
He said there is no single artillery road in the Asawase constituency that the current government is constructing.
Mr Muntaka, said the governing NPP is struggling to even construct main roads in the Ashanti region despite huge loans it has borrowed barely four years the party came to power.
President Akufo, the MP said, has not done any significant developmental project in the region despite being their strongesthold.
He wants residents in the region to ask the President, what he has done for them barely four years they gave him massive vote to rule the nation.
Mr Muntaka, said the region being the strongesthold of the governing NPP should have benefited hugely from the national cake.
He said President Akufo Addo promised to construct interchanges in Kumasi, Accra and Temale but noted that work have started on the Accra and Temale interchanges but nothing has been seen in Kumasi.
The Asawase legislator noted that the NPP government is gradually turning Kumasi to a village, and therefore, called on residents in the region to let the party knows that they cannot be taking for granted by voting against the NPP in the upcoming general elections.
He said was speaking at a health screening organised by I am for Prof Naana Jane Association for Kayayies, Aboboya riders, Market women and driver unions at Asawase, yesterday.
President for I am for Prof Naana Jane Association, Victoria Naema Abdulia, also explained why the health screening was organized.
Ms Victoria Naema Abdulai pledged to support Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, the running mate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), to win this year’s presidential polls in December.
She however entreated her not to forget about them when eventually the NDC wins power come December 2020 because they believe that just like a mother will never forget about her children.
