Aboabo Camp residents threaten to demonstrate against MP over network challenges

Must Read

Residents of Aboabo Camp in the Assin South District of the Central Region have threatened to demonstrate against their Member of Parliament, Rev. John Ntim Fordjour, over his failed promises to help improve telecommunication service in the area.

According to the agitated residents, prior to the 2020 election, the MP who doubles as the Deputy Education Minister promised to provide them with a network mast to curtail the difficulties they go through to make calls and do their research works.

“He mounted a skeletal telecommunication tower powered by solar and promised to commission it within two weeks but has since been left to rot in the bush, worsening their difficulties,” they told Angel News reporter Kwame Owusu Asante Shadrack.

Currently, residents including the aged risk their lives by climbing cocoa trees, mango trees, and palm trees in the bush to make calls since it is the only spot they can access network service.

A 16-year-old boy died as a result of a snake bite while in search of a receptive area to check his Basic Education Certificate Examination results, they lamented.

Meanwhile, the convenor of the agitators, Mohamed Munidu noted that although Assin Aboabo Camp hosts a population of over 2000, and is widely known for its massive production of cash crops, the unavailability of network service is hugely affecting businesses in the community.

The situation, according to him, is also impacting negatively students’ academic performance, because teachers fail to stay in town since they find it difficult to do their research work.

Expressing their disappointment in Rev. John Ntim Fordjour, Mr Munidu said the MP has consistently failed to honour his promises including reshaping poor road networks.

He said the lawmaker contracted constructors to grade some roads without completion, contributing to post-harvest losses and the collapse of their businesses.
