The Bechmehene, Nana Ofosu Gyeabour in the Brong Ahafo Region, has commended President John Dramani Mahama for his efforts in bringing various developmental projects in the area. According to him, despite the slow pace of projects especially the delays in road project, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) led by President Mahama has given the area its fair share of the national cake. The traditional ruler made the remarks when the president paid a courtesy call on him as part of his campaign tour in the region.
Nana Ofosu Gyeabour said, the president in the year 2012 called on the chiefs and people in the area to vote for him so he could bring them development, and true to his word, he has done a lot for the area but more needs to be done he added.
”I want to thank President Mahama on behalf of my chiefs and people for what he has done for us. In 2012, i told President Mahama that, he was going to win the election because of his humility and message. Over the last four years, i can say that, President Mahama and his administration have done so much for us, but we have concerns we want him to address. One major challenge we face in this area is our roads, the project has stalled and so i want to humbly appeal to the President to do his best to do that for us. The development in this area is at a slow pace, it cannot be attributed to this administration alone, because successive governments have also failed to fast track development in this area.” Nana Ofosu Gyeabour further admonished the president to renovate their football park boost the development of sports in the area. He said, sports in the area can create opportunities for the teaming youth hence, the need for President Mahama to take steps to renovate the park for them. He said, we have costed the project and documented it and so i will present it to you so you can have a look it at. The park is dear to our hearts and so we want you to do it for us,” he noted.
