Some residents of Bontefuo-Ahwerewa and other adjoining communities in the Amansie West District of the Ashanti region have expressed their disappointments at the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party, Mr. Bernard Antwi Boasiako, for abandoning their road networks.
According to them, the road has been awarded to the governing party’s regional Chairman popularly called Wontumi but he has abandoned it for a reason best known to him.
Some of the residents who spoke to Class news’ regional correspondent Elisha Adarkwa said because of the bad nature of the road networks, it makes it difficult for them to use it when it rains.
They said not only has armed robbers been terrorising them due to the bad nature of the road but drivers have also taken the opportunity to charge exorbitant fares.
They argued that Chairman Wontumi should be blamed if the ruling party loses votes in the 2024 general elections in the area.
They, therefore, want President Akufo-Addo to intervene and force Chairman Wontumi to return to the site.
For this part, the Chief of Bontefuo-Ahwerewa, Nana Osei Owusu Kuffour Ababio expressed his disappointment, adding that they have been deceived by the government.
He said the abandoned road networks have brought hardship to his subjects and want it fixed.
