The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has called on the people of Adansi South District to vote the NDC into power come December 7.
Addressing the people during his campaign tour in the Ashanti Region, the General Secretary likened politics to a ‘Talking Drum’.
“Politics is like a Talking Drum; if you play one side and you do not enjoy it, turn and play the other side,” he said.
Residents in the area, mostly farmers and miners, who use motorcycles as a means of transportation complained about the deplorable state of the road linking the Manso-Edubiasi, Manso-Kenyasi, and its environs.
According to them, considering the serious impact the road has on their lives and businesses, the political party that presents a definite solution to the problem will get their vote in the December polls.
“We are afraid when a loved one goes to Kumasi and delays in coming back because of the bad news we hear concerning the road. So we are very concerned about our roads, and for me, that is what will influence my vote,” a resident said.
According to another resident who called on the NDC to come to their aid, although they voted the NPP into power, their concerns remain unattended to.
“We are begging you, ‘General Mosquito’ and Mahama, if you will fix our roads then start now so we can decide who to vote for, because even though the NPP has seats here, they have not attended to our need so please do something about it for us, we beg you,” the resident added.
Asiedu Nketia promised that the NDC will construct a first-class road with lanes for motorcycles and bicycles if voted in power.
