The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) chairman in the Western Region, Nana Kwame Toku, has heavily criticised the Akufo-Addo government for woefully failing inhabitants of the region in his almost 4 years of governance.
The NDC big wig indicated that the ruling government and its stalwarts have destroyed arable lands through the activities of ilegal mining in the area to the chagrin of the residents whose lands are being encroached on and most small-scale miners whose concessions had been transferred to NPP fanatics.
Speaking at a durbar to launch the campaing of the party and to welcome former president John Mahama to the Tarkwa Nsuaem Constituency, the outspoken NDC chairman said the NPP governmnent had taken advantage of the fact that most of the electorates in Tarkwa belong to the NPP hence they refused to embark on developmental projects but rather engage in acts to enrich themselves.
“Our NPP brothers and sisters know they have lost touch with the people and are losing the elections so they have brought huge sums of monies to buy your votes. We have seen it but when they bring you the cash, collect it and vote against them,” Nana Toku said on Tuesday to the charged crowd.
He explained that the monies are meant for Ghanaians so the electorates should not be afraid to take the money that will be shared to them in the coming days.
Nana Toku commended the NDC candidate for Tarkwa-Nsuaem, John Justice Abban (DJ), who he said had showed so much commitment to facilitating developmental projects and human resource development in Tarkwa and its environs through his philanthropic works, and urged the people to vote him to represent them in Parliament.
“What DJ has done, nobody and I attest to the fact that noone in the party in that capacity has ever done that before,” he added.
The candidate has enrolled about 200 youth into vocational skills training in Tarkwa and its adjoining communities as well as supporting communities to embark on critical projects.
