Antoa locals threaten to boycott the 2024 election if their inadequate roads are not improved
Should the NPP government fail to build their roads, the residents of Antoa, in the Kwabre East Municipality of the Ashanti region, have threatened to vote them out.
They contend that during its six years in office, the NPP administration has betrayed the community and broken its commitments.
They lamented the lack of recent road development on practically all of the routes in the Kwabre East Municipality.
Antoa to Adesina, Krobo to Wonoo, Kenyasi to Bosore, Mamponteng town roads, and the Dumanafo to Mamponteng route are among the affected regions that they named.
At a news conference, Mr. Akwasi Kito, the representative of the disgruntled people, revealed this.
He told GhanaWeb that because the Kwabre East constituency had served as the center of the NPP’s World bank, it was extremely concerning that the NPP leadership had played them for fools.
He bemoaned, “You promised, among other development initiatives, that the roads within Kwabre would be fixed in your 2016 and 2020 elections.
They claim that the road’s most recent tarring took place under former President Jerry John Rawlings, and that no government, particularly the NPP, has attempted to renovate or build the road since.
The residents are now complaining that things have gotten worse.
“Due to the unsteady quality of the road, pregnant women who are being carried by cabs during birth have been dying. Drivers now need two to three hours before they can transport people on this small route that was intended to take them to town in 20 minutes, the speaker continued.
However, he urged the NPP to never seek to enter either for the purpose of an election campaign.
If the leaders didn’t take the necessary action, they threatened bloodshed.
