Residents in Amanchia, a community in the Atwima Nwabiagya South constituency in the Ashanti region, booed the Member of Parliament (MP) for the area, Hon. Emmanuel Agyei Anhwere, over poor nature of roads in the area.
On Tuesday, August 23, 2022, residents of Amanhia tried to thwart the MP from visiting the area, most importantly, walking to the Palace. However, the MP, who was without any security, was not touched by any of the angry youth.
The MP–according to our well-placed sources-during a working visit to the Amanchia enclave was greeted with the shock of his life when the angry residents, made up of youth, children, and adults, hooted at him to register their displeasure over what they describe as a lack of infrastructural development in the area for so long a time, although they have been voting massively for the ruling government during general elections.
The residents, including the chief of the area, Nana Afrifa Boansra Ii, feel the MP and the New Patriotic Party at large, have failed to develop the area, in terms of road infrastructure and their inability to create jobs for the youth since the NPP came to power six years ago.
Nana Afrifa Boansra II, who was very angry, warned the MP and the New Patriotic Party not to embark on any form of campaign in his area for the upcoming elections if they fail to provide the area with a befitting road system.
He expressed his displeasure about the dusty and rough nature of the road in his area and quizzed the MP, Hon Anhwere, if he was excited while going through the road to the area.
The residents claimed the MP has failed to lobby for development projects with regard to road systems and jthe NPP’s inability to create jobs for the youth of the area.
“He has to fix the roads to the area. Go away, away, away,” they chanted as they followed the MP drumming and dancing.
It would be recalled that residents in the Suame constituency in the Ashanti region recently hooted at their Member of Parliament (MP) for the area, Hon Osei Kyei-Mensah Bonsu, and asked him to vacate his seat as a parliamentarian.
According to reports, Kyei Mensah-Bonsu had to run away from the scene to avert any further humiliation. They asked him to step down as the area’s MP.
