"We Voted For NPP In The 2016 But Look At Our Roads" - Akyem Anyinasin Residents to Prez Nana Addo

Yesterday, Tuesday, 24th of November 2020, the residents of Akyem Anyinasin sent a strong warning to the New Patriotic Party government led by His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo-Addo that if their roads are not fixed before the general elections in December, then they should be informed that they, the residents of Akyem Anyinasin would not be voting in the elections. 

According to a news report monitored on Star Fm, the residents said that they have always voted for the NPP government and thought that as the party had finally come to power their standard of living would have been positively affected, however, the opposite is the case.

They complained about bad roads that have led to insecurity since armed robbers take undue advantage of the roads to rob commuters, no street lights which nearly cost the lives of some four residents some few days ago, and the unavailability of police patrols in the area.

The residents therefore threatened to boycott the December 7, elections if the deplorable road from their town to Old Tafo Akyem is not fixed.

They lamented all these when they were addressing the media in a press conference.

Mr Baffuor Kyei who addre9the media on their behalf read: “We voted for the NPP in the 2016 general elections with the hope that our road will be fixed but look at the state of the road. Highway robbers have been terrorising us because of the poor nature of our road to Akyem Old Tafo. There is no street light, no Police patrol. In January, this year someone was shot dead by the armed robbers. Just last three days, four people were nearly killed."

The statement continued in part: "So we are telling the government that, if we don’t see any serious work done on the road we are not going to allow ballot boxes to come to this community on December 7."
