Member of Parliament (MP) for Atwima Nwabiagya South Constituency in the Ashanti Region, Emmanuel Agyei Anhwere says If the government does not pay the $1 million per district as promised, it will be difficult for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to campaign in the general election of 2024.
The warning was given by Hon. Anwhere as he discussed some of the significant issues his people were facing.
He pointed out that the Atwima Nwabiagya constituency is struggling with poor roads and other improvements that have been put on hold since 2016 because of a lack of financing.
Mr. Anwhere cited numerous projects in his district that have stalled and absolutely said that they were all funded by the $ 1 million per district that has stopped flowing.
“I have said it repeatedly that government has to find money by all means to complete the $1 million per constituency projects if not it is going to hunt us in 2024”, Hon Anhwere warned.
The MP revealed, “I think I have to say this as it is. The Seidi toilet facility is one of the $ 1 million per constituency projects. The people of Seidi haven’t gotten a single toilet facility yet they have been voting all the time. So during my tour in my constituency and engagement, they requested for a toilet facility.”
According to him, those projects are the most important things for the people in those neighborhoods hence there is the need to complete them.
“These are the things when you do the people themselves will testify that they have really benefited from their votes.
“Are you telling me that, if the toilet facility is left uncompleted, you can tell somebody to vote for you in 2024? He asked Kwame Tanko on Angel FM Kumasi in an interview.
