The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, will start a tour of the Eastern Region today, October 11, 2019, but the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has predicted that he will not receive an enthusiastic welcome by the people.
The NDC’s secretary in the region, Cudjoe Adukpo, who made the prediction, said the President has failed to improve the region where he hails from, thereby causing disaffection for him.
Mr Adukpo described the President’s visit as “funfair”, adding that “he is no more attractive to us.”
Mr Adukpo was speaking on Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem, Friday.
The President will begin a three-day tour of the Eastern region from Saturday, October 12 to Monday, October 14, 2019 where he is expected to visit and inspect some ongoing projects.
But, Mr Adukpo noted that the Akufo-Addo-led administration has failed the people of the Eastern region by doing nothing to show for his stewardship and accused the administration of abandoning many projects in the region.
The tour will begin from Nkawkaw where he will inspect the 5km Akwasiho-Twerenoase road which is currently under construction.
He wondered what the President will be visiting the region for, especially when his government has no single project to boast of.
But, in a rebuttal, Eastern Regional Organiser of the governing New Patriotic Party, Kwame Kodua, on the same show, described Mr Adukpo’s comments as “extreme desperation” by the opposition.
On the government’s performance over the past two years, Mr Kodua said most students in the region are now enjoying the free senior high school policy rolled out across the country.
He urged Ghanaians to support the Akufo-Addo-led government to ensure the region gets the needed developmental projects it deserves.
