The Chief of Nzema Akropong, Nana Adu Kwaw, has applauded the performance of Mr John
Dramani Mahama as president and especially for the monumental development projects his
administration gave the people of the Western Region.
Nana Adu Kwaw said even though chiefs are not supposed to engage in partisan politics,
they cannot resist the temptation of praising the presidential candidate of the National
Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, for the numerous projects he brought
to the Nzema area.
He said it was during the tenure of president Mahama that the Agona-Nkwanta-Elubo-Half
Assini road was constructed, including many other deplorable roads in the area.
Speaking during a visit of Mr Mahama to Nkroful in the Ellembelle constituency on
Wednesday as part of his five-day campaign tour of the Western Region, Nana Adu Kwaw
highlighted a number of projects, established in the Nzema area by the Mahama
administration, including Ghana Gas Company, that have created decent and sustainable
jobs for the people in the area.
He added, cocoa farmers in the area also benefited from the then Mahama governement’s
free fertilizer programme.
“Every chief stands for development and why should I not praise a politician if he should
help bring development in my area? That is why I can’t resist the temptation of praising
Mahama for what he did for the Nzema area,” Nana Adu Kwaw said.
He was unhappy that the current regime did not continue the Mahama government’s
proposed Atuabo Free Port project.
The chief of Nzema Akropong said there are more prospects for development in the
People’s manifesto of the NDC, especially the 10 billion Big Push plan as well as the promise to legalise okada, and therefore urged his people to rally behind the NDC’s campaign to recapture power in the December 7 2020 elections.
