The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for the the just-ended Kumawu by-election, Kwasi Amankwaa, has appealed to the government not to halt projects started ahead of the polls.
Amankwaa who was speaking to Kwame Minkah on Dwaboase on TV XYZ indicated that the district was part of the country and equally deserved their part of the national cake.
He said the Akufo-Addo government promised the people some projects like roads and must fulfill his promise to the people as they voted for the NPP candidate.
The ongoing road projects in the Kumawu constituency of the Ashanti Region were halted, barely 24 hours after a by-election was held to elect a new MP for the area.
Ahead of the hot polls roads in the area were seen being shaped, raising concerns that the government was using that as a vote-buying tool to get the electorates to vote for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) candidate.
Power News checks on Wednesday May 24, 2023, indicate that the heavy equipment that were busily shaping the bad roads in the district have all been moved out of site.
XYZ Ashanti Regional correspondent, Nana Appiah told Piesie Okrah on Power Kasiebo on TV XYZ Wednesday evening that “all the equipment used to fix the roads were nowhere to be found by Wednesday afternoon.”
“My checks from Bodomase and all the areas roads were being fixed showed that construction of roads had been halted,” Nana Appiah added.
He said the community members in the affected areas are livid about the sudden turn of events although they voted massively for the NPP candidate to retain the seat.
