The Flagbearer of National Democratic Congress(NDC), His Excellency John Dramani Mahama has told the people of Ahafo Region to blame the New Patriotic Party(NPP) government over their poor road network which is affecting their daily activities.

The Former President of Republic of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama said this when he used three days to visit the region which consists of six constituencies (Asunafo North, Asunafo South, Tano North, Tano South, Asutifi North, and Asutifi South) on his Speakout Tour which will assist the party to draft perfect manifesto to campaign for the 2020 general elections pegged on 7th December.

Addressing the chiefs and the people of the region the NDC Flagbearer said he is extremely shocked to see the state of cocoa roads which his government started and were almost completed in his tenure in such a deplorable state to the extent that work must begin afresh again if only the government is willing to reconstruct them.

According to Mr Mahama, the government is the most heartless one in the history of Ghana due to what he and his team saw during their visit to the region because the people can not brag of any development especially when it comes to road ever since the NPP was voted to power.

He said per the impact the region gives to the country economically the government has no excuse to treat the residents like that.

The former President stated that a region like Ahafo producing gold, timber, foodstuffs among others to support the country’s economy must have enough developmental projects but it is rather unfortunate that the government has nothing to show to tell the people and the world that the residents also deserve goodies just like others in some regions.

He asked the residents to challenge the government to give them one tangible reason why the Akufo – Addo led government halted the cocoa roads which were ongoing and were almost completed under his (JDM) tenure.

He stated that a stretch from Hwidiem to Kenyasi as an example was about 80 percent completed but due to bad governance of the NPP now the road which is so busy irrespective of time is full of potholes making people who apply the stretch uncomfortable.

Aside from the roads being in a horrible state in the region the quantum of dust produce by the roads is terrible and dangerous to the health of residents.

He narrated that it will not be shocking to hear from health workers in the region that most health cases recorded in the region are related to respiratory matters due to how the region is so dusty.

His Excellency John Dramani Mahama disclosed that the government does not think positively for the people in the newly created regions because it is like the same challenges confronting Western North Region have reoccurred in Ahafo due to the government not having the people at heart.

He told them it is not to entertain this government anymore because it has failed to improve the living conditions of the people in the region likewise all the regions.

He added the NDC is for the people and the people are for the party so come December 7th general elections they should come out in their numbers to vote for the NDC party for proper development.
