Stop Being Emotional Towards The Road Minister: Fomena MP Tells Hon. Appiah Boateng

Poor roads are one of the major concerns of Ghanaians and as such, is used as an indicator or criteria in voting for political parties. It is for that matter that the road minister, Kwesi Amoako, was summoned to come to parliament to answer some questions. Almost all the questions that were thrown to him bothered around when some major roads will either be started or completed.

The Honorable Member for the Afram Plain South constituency, Honorable Joseph Appiah Boateng, filed a question and this was what he said when it got to his turn;

"The Minister mentioned a major road in Afram Plains which he claimed was being constructed. There has not been any road work at all. We all know that Afram Plains is a deprived area. So if the minister tells us that work has commenced in Afram Plains, then I put it to him that it is a lie.

"My question is that, ever since you assumed office, for almost five years, have you ever visited Afram Plains?", he asked.

This question was declined by the Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Honorable Andrew Asiamah, who is also the MP for Fomena. Honorable Joseph Appiah Boateng still insisted on the question for the second time but was prompted to change the question by his colleague, Rockson Dafeamekpor. The road minister was not offended by the question so he answered it. However, the 2nd deputy speaker of minister left a piece of advice to Honorable Joseph Appiah Boateng.

"Please do not be emotional towards the road minister. You have to take the minister as your friend.", Honorable Andrew Asiamah.
