I have read in the various news portal a misleading remark granted the Npp by the Baamuhene of Akan traditional area, the chief claimed the Npp has fulfilled their promises to the people of Oti region.
The chief’s statement was a personal opinion which he is entitled to but not a reality that is reflective on the ground, there’s no Npp promise to the people of Oti region that is fulfilled.
We were promised Dams in all our villages, we were promised a regional sports stadium, our working youths were promised free rent, we were promised factories in all our districts in the region, we were promised toilets in every household in Oti, we were promised free WiFi connections to all our senior high schools in Oti, and many more, none of these is fulfilled, and we aware same will not be fulfilled.
It is so disturbing for our traditional leaders who are expected to speak the truth to politicians on our behalf are rather singing needles praises for them, and that must be put to a stop immediately, because it really retards development and growth, Baamuhene must be informed.
The chief also claimed Oti region only see development when Npp is in government, this also is a dishonest personal opinion, Baamuhene cannot pretend not see the massive rural electrification projects carried out in Oti region by the NDC and John Dramani Mahama, there are countless chips compounds, basic schools and other facilities build by the NDC across the Oti region.
There are community day senior high schools the famous E blocks, at Nkwanta, Dambai, Damanko, Krachi, Kwamekrom, and other places all built by the NDC in Oti region.
There are countless ICT centres build by the NDC across the Oti region, students and parents in the Oti region benefitted from the progressive free senior high school programme introduced by the NDC and that can not be discredited by the Baamuhene of Akan traditional area.
The very road completed and commissioned by Bawumia was awarded to Rolider by the NDC and the erstwhile John Mahama government, which was shamefully terminated by Akuffo Addo for a cheap political credit, and that really delayed the completion of the project to this time.
Baamuhene must be told that, article 35(7) of the 1992 constitution commanded every government to continue to complete projects and programmes started by any previous government, so it should not be a news or a novel practice if Npp government completed a road project started by the previous NDC government under the John Mahama administration, our previous governments also completed countless projects started by former president Agyekum Kufour.
The NDC and our previous governments have realistic and life touching achievements to show in the Oti region than any other political party in the history of this Republic since the inception of democracy in 1992 till date and this is not debatable.
I’m calling on everyone who might have come across the Baamuhene of Akan traditional area statement that “the Npp have fulfilled all their promises to the people region” to be inform that is not our collective stand and also a reality in the region but a mere personal opinion subject to the entitlement of the issuer of the statement.
