The Nifahene of Gomoa Akyempim Traditional Area, Nana Adu Boata, has lambasted Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo over his inability to steer the affairs of the country.
He made these comments during a durbar of chiefs and people of Gomoa Mumford in the Gomoa West District.
The traditional leader was pushed by the statements of the District Chief Executive for the Area, Bismark Inkoom, who had sought to tout his achievements and that of the governing New Patriotic Party during his address at the durbar grounds.
“When I die, I want my children to remember me as the DCE who ensured that a harbor was constructed, I promise that will come to pass. We are building a health center in Mumford. We saw the need for a police station and now the only police station with Air conditioning in Gomoa West can be found in Mamford. President Akufo-Addo is indeed awesome,” the DCE told the gathering.
However, Nana Adu Boata kicked against the DCE’s move to tout the government saying his claims of bringing development to the area were a total falsehood.
“The DCE and his people have touted themselves here but the truth is they have performed abysmally. Just look at the poor state of our roads. It was during the second term of President Kufuor that they graded the road to ostensibly fix it but that was to deceive us they did not construct the road. NDC also came to power for 8 years and equally deceived us by not constructing the road,” he said.
“It amazes me that the politicians are always singing their own praise but they have done nothing. The cars they drive in and all the money they spend is from our taxes. They are responsible for the hardship in the country so if they tout themselves that is deceptive,” he said.
The Chief reiterated that the only way he will command the good-yielding effort of government was when roads in the area are properly constructed to bring total comfort to the folks of Mamford.
