Sam Nartey George, the Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, has issued a warning to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo regarding the poor state of roads in his constituency, particularly in Dawhenya.
He has expressed his intention to block the President’s convoy if he ever uses that road, to draw attention to the dire condition of the roads in the Ningo-Prampram constituency.
Sam George voiced his frustration at the lack of progress despite seven years of appeals for road improvements, stating that all their requests have gone unanswered.
“The people of Ningo-Prampram and the people of Afienya deserve good roads. What is the meaning of this? I think I need to organise my people. Let me serve notice, Mr. President, the next time you are going to Akosombo, I will block you in Afienya. Or the next time you are going to the Volta Region, I will block you in Dawhenya and make you walk on the roads to see.
“We also pay taxes; what is this? We begged for seven years; is it because it is Sam George?” he questioned.
“In Akufo-Addo’s hometown, even the cemetery has asphalt. But look at the road to his wife’s father’s house. These are not potholes; even Akufo-Addo’s bed and Cecilia Dapaah’s bed can fit inside these holes with the $1 million under it,” he indicated.
“We have complained about this road, we have complained and even the minister of roads literally said he has given up. Because we don’t know whether the problem is the road minister, or if the one whole is always wearing white and quoting bible but killing all of us and refusing to release money.
“A contractor has been put on this road, Semen Ghana, for seven years and counting. I heard two weeks ago that they are coming to remove the covert. I am waiting for them, they should come again,” he challenged.
