Ashanti MPs want to meet Akufo-Addo over lack of development

Members of Parliament (MPs) from the Ashanti Region on the ticket of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) are seeking an urgent meeting with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo over what they deemed the lack of development in the region.

The Ashanti Caucus say the region is lagging in the areas of infrastructure and other amenities after years of voting for the NPP.

Chairman of the Ashanti Caucus, Kwame Anyimadu Antwi said the region needs urgent attention.

The chairman who is also MP for Asante AkIm Central Constituency made this demand in an interview with the Parliamentary Press Corps on Thursday, July 21, 2022 in reaction to the action of Suame residents pelting their MP with sachet water on a tour of some stalled road projects in the Suame area of the Kumasi metropolis 

"The roads within Kwabre East are very bad and there are constituencies like Manso Adobea, Nkwanta, Bantama, Kwadaso… Asante Akyem North and South. So virtually, all the constituencies have some concerns over are roads,” he said.

According to Mr. Anyimadu Antwi, the Ashanti MPs believe that if road projects in the region are completed, constituents’ trust in the government will increase.

He added that the leadership of the Ashanti Caucus will also raise other issues of concern such as electricity extension in the region in due time
