Kwabena Akuoko Kwarteng said the district is a newly created district with less than four years as it was separated from Amansie west district of Ashanti with a lot of natural resources can not be proud of a one kilometer tarred road isn’t it pitiful?. We are using this medium to send a signal to the president of the republic of Ghana including the other stakeholders of this country to give much attention to us before we register our anger, we are not joking enough of this bad treatment, Hon. Akuoko Kwarteng spit the venom contributions but it can never boast with.
He said the Ashanti regional minister Hon.Simon Osei Mensa promised to give the road to contract but for almost three months to an election the contractor is no where to be found the minister said the road from Mem junction to Agroyesum had been awarded to a contract but as at now we don’t even know the name of the contractor and even you as a media guys look at how you are suffering here but this is how our people going through.
All what we are saying is that we are pleading with the government to give us our shares of the national cake and we will continue to give him our support but if he fails then he should forget us in 2020 election we also deserve better. “He concluded”.
