The Western Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Francis Ndede Siah, has disclosed that he cannot lead the crusade to campaign for the party’s flagbearer, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, in the Jomoro constituency.
In an interview with Accra-based Neat FM, he stated that there are no development projects in the constituency, making it difficult to lead Bawumia to campaign in the area.
“There is no presidential candidate I can lead to campaign in some constituencies. Even in my own constituency, Jomoro, if the roads are not fixed, it will be hard for me to campaign there. I have nothing to say, and there is nothing to show. What projects has the government done in Jomoro?” he quizzed.
He added that the constituency is rich and endowed with natural resources, which include oil and gas, so they deserve better, but the constituency is lacking in projects.
“Most raw materials are from Jomoro, yet when it comes to development, Ellembele is far ahead. The road is just 18 to 20km. The most annoying part is that the Jomoro road is being funded by GNPC and Ghana Gas,” he lamented.
Mr. Siah urged the leadership of the party to fix Agona Nkwanta, Bowodie, Asenkagua, Mpohor, and the Jomoro roads; if not, the party will be humiliated come the 2024 polls.
“In 2020, I advised that galamsey activities be checked or we would lose the Western region to the NDC, and it came to pass. A lot of things have not been changed. These roads have been contracted, so what are we doing to the contractors for abandoning them? We need to cut the whip if we are paying them,” he stressed.
