The Paramount Chief of Lower Dixcove in Ahanta West in the Western Region, Nana Akwesi Agyemang IX, has endorsed the candidature of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, John Mahama, and commended him for embarking on major development projects in the area.
Speaking at a durbar to welcome former President Mahama as part of his five-day tour of the Western Region, the excited chief said the NDC has helped the Ahanta West with major projects including schools, electrification projects and road rehabilitation which has helped develop the area.
“Anything good that is here in Ahanta West happened during the tenure of the NDC administration. The Baidoo Bonsoe Senior High Technical School, the Agona Nkwanta Market, the Sankor Senior High School, the Abura Vocational Technical, the commencement of the Princess town road were all done by the NDC,” said Nana Akwesi Agyemang IX.
Adding to the numerous projects that were done by the NDC in the area, Nana Agyemang IX said, “even my own hometown Nfuma, the water project was done by the NDC. It was during the period of Hon. Arthur that Agona Nkwanta had light” and dared to be shown any remarkable project in the area that wasn’t embarked on by the NDC.
““Do an introspection, look around and do an inventory of all the development projects in Ahanta West and see if they were all not done by the NDC,” he challenged.
Applauding Mr Mahama and NDC, the Omanhene for their good work in the Ahanta area, Nana Agyemang IX wnet on to appeal to the former President to construct a modern market and also continue with other projects that his administration started but could not complete when elected into office.
“You started the Sankor Senior High School but could not complete before you left office. We will plead that you complete it when you come back. You also started the Princess Town road but currently, construction works have stalled, please pay attention to it when you come. The Cape Three Point and New Amanful roads all need your attention when you come. Again, I think Ahanta West deserves a housing project because Takoradi is choked.”
In his speech, Mr Mahama assured him and the people of Ahanta West a better governance that will bring massive development to the area when voted to power in the December polls.
