Amenfi West: Time for change, 26 years of underdevelopment under NDC is enough- Veep
Vice President of Ghana, H.E Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has appealed to the electorate in the Amenfi West Constituency to appraise the difference and impact the Akufo-Addo government has granted them against what the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) offered in their over twenty-six years of loyalty.
The Veep at his visit to Prestea Nkwanta, a rural settlement in the Amenfi West Constituency charged that the people sever their ‘fruitless’ relationship with the NDC. He mentioned that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) under President Nana Akufo Addo has brought about transformative development in the community and across the country, “and that should be the basis of your vote come December 7.”
“We’ve voted since 1992,… That is twenty-eight years now. NPP has since gotten one and a half years to serve the people, and that was through a bye-election. So they’ve had twenty-six and half years, and yet the development here does not commensurate with the continued endorsement and loyalty you’ve shown them. You will realize there’s a vast difference between the Akufo-Addo government and the John Mahama and NDC government,” Dr. Bawumia noted.
The Parliamentary Candidate for the NPP, who is also the Chief Executive for the Ghana Investment Fund for Electronic Communications (GIFEC), Abraham Kofi Asante disclosed that the Prestea Nkwanta community and the entire constituency have resolved to set aside their political affiliation and endorse the Akufo-Addo government and his candidature for the 2020 general elections. He mentioned that the people have come to the realization of the potential and achievement the current government has, and that would wish we [NPP] continue for another term.
“We are awakened now. We are not going back anymore. Amenfi West is seeking a new friendship and that is with Nana Akufo-Addo. We’ve resolved, despite our political affiliations to support a good cause, and that is for the development of Amenfi West.”
The Vice President cut the sod for the construction and asphalting of a 40-kilometer Prestea to Samreboi Road project. This project is being fined with the Cocoa Road Fund and is expected to be completed in the next couple of months.
