The Acting President of Effutuakwa Traditional Area, Nana Afran Siah, says Chiefs in the area have seen nothing good from President Akufo-Addo since he came to power.
According to the Chief, even though the President has initiated some projects, the Chiefs and people of Effutuakwa have yet to reap the benefits of those policies due to the poverty of the Assin Central and Effutuakwa Traditional Areas.
According to the Chief, she has never seen good roads in Assin Central since she was born.
The Chief hinted that all of their roads are bad, particularly their town roads, and pleaded with the President to help them build their deplorable roads.
“We have a problem with the potholes on our roads. I have come off age yet I have never seen an asphalt road in this Municipality. We know most of the other political people in parliament and when they come here, they call you bad names due to our roads. So, we the chiefs of Effutuakwa are begging you to give us at least 50kilometres of tarred roads. So, we can say it was during your tenure of office that Assin Fosu had an asphalt road”.
In response to the Chief’s request, President Akuffo Addo promised to meet all of their needs.
He also promised to improve the Municipality’s Assin Fosu Immigration Training Centre.
He also stated that Assin Fosu will receive a portion of the One District One Ware House initiative.
