Constituents in the Amansie West in the Ashanti Region have regretted voting for President Akufo-Addo and New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for the area, Hon. Joseph Albert Quarm, a Constituency Executive has revealed.
*According to Yaw Nuamah who is the constituency Organiser* , *NPP supporters including constituency executives are now jobless under their own government as government placed a ban on illegal and small scale mining activities which is the major occupation to the people.*
“Some of us regret voting for NPP and our MP”, the constituency organizer revealed on Kumasi-based Nhyira FM Wednesday on ” Kroyemunsem” morning show hosted by Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin.
“NPP is in power but we are in opposition”, he stated in a telephone interview.
This comes at the time the MP Joseph Albert Quarm in a media banter accused the District Chief Executive there of fueling galamsey activities, allegations Hon. William Asare Bediako has denied.
According to the anti-illegal mining crusader, politicians across the divide in the area are still engaging in illegal mining despite a ban on these activities by the government.
“It is true and I can confirm that some people are still doing it in places like Kaniago, Totomkrom, Abore and many areas”, Hon. Joseph Albert Quarm revealed on Kumasi-based Fox FM.
The DCE however denies the claims insisting it is a diabolic move by the MP and his cohorts to have him fired.
