Poor Ashanti Region Roads Will Send You Back To Opposition- Akufo Addo Told

Party delegates and Executives of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP)  in some Atwima communities have hinted the incumbent government may lose massive votes in  the 2020 general elections if nothing is done about the deplorable nature of roads in the Ashanti Region.

According to them campaigning for the NPP at the grassroots in the region particularly the Atwima communities has become very difficult for them as most voters and party members are running out of patience over the bad roads in their respective areas.

Speaking  on Monday  August 26, 2019, with  Kwame Agyenim Boateng on  Otec FM’s new programme ‘Asanteman Nkwan’,  a project called ‘Operation Fix Our Roads’ (#OFOR), on the morning show ‘Nyansapo’, hosted by Captain Koda, some polling station executives for the  NPP in the Atwima Kwanwoma district said one of the major campaign promises by the NPP which was building good roads particularly in the Ashanti Region has not been met ,a situation they noted could cause the down fall of the party if nothing pragmatic is done about it.

They disclosed that electorates in areas such as Abuakwa, Foase, Takyiman, Denkyemuoso, Kwadaso, Asuyeboah, Tanoso, Traboum, Nweneso, Twedie, Akropong , Esaase, Agogo and surrounding communities within the Atwima Nwabiagya South and North districts,  Kwadaso Municipality and the Atwima Kwanwoma District respectively have already threatened the government over the deplorable roads linking communities in these areas.

A visit by OTEC NEWS Kwame Agyenim Boateng to the aforementioned Constituencies confirmed the poor roads network in the area as most of the roads were not tarred.

“We have been suffering as Ghanaians and as party executives for the so many years due to our poor roads” the polling station chairman for Traboum/Hwediem electoral area  Andrews Owusu Sarpong cried out.

He added that per the response from the grassroots, NPP is likely lose numbers on the total  54,000 votes won in the 2016 presidential elections which  represented 90 percent of the total vote cast in the Atwima Kwanwoma District.

He however called on the government to help fix the deplorable roads in the various Atwima communities to calm nerves.
