Some residents of Ledzokuku say they are unimpressed with strides made by their MP, Bernard Okoe-Boye in improving their living conditions and revamping social amenities in the community.

They complained about his inability to fulfil several promises including providing solutions to the deplorable state of roads and drainage systems in the area.

In Joy News’ interactions with these residents, many spoke about willingness to give a chance to political opposition, Benjamin Ayiku of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the upcoming Parliamentary Elections.

“An MP does not have to wait all this while to develop his community. Why did Okoe-Boye have to wait till 3 months to elections to feign interest in the development of the Ledzokuku?” one resident quizzed.

But supporters of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) maintain that the current MP and Deputy Minister of Health, who also is seeking to be the first from the area to be awarded a second term, deserves another chance.

They expressed optimism about Mr Okoe-Boye’s victory in the impending elections.
