The Assembly Member for Apire-Heman Electoral Area in the Kwadaso Municipality, Frank Awuah Baffour, has observed that it is regrettable that the needs of constituents are not attended to as expected.
He said he almost gave up fighting to alleviate the plight of people in his area because project to improve livelihoods were not being initiated and the people became disappointed, lost trust and confidence in him.
According to him, the Apire community, one of the fastest growing suburbs in Greater Kumasi, had deplorable roads, lacked amenities to improve livelihoods and a high rate of youth unemployment and crime which posed a challenge to the development agenda.
Mr Baffour appealed to the government, the Member of Parliament (MP) for the area and the Municipal Chief Executive to accelerate the socioeconomic development of the area to ameliorate the plight of the residents.
“The residents of Apire community need attention through projects that will reduce, crime, unemployment and infrastructure to attract investment since the residence have been deprived and have lost confidence and trust in the leadership of the area.
“If the state continues to ignore us the community will lose trust, hope, respect and confidence in our politicians and it will become difficult to convince them for their votes in future elections,” Mr Baffour cautioned.
He assured the residents of fighting for them to bring development to the area by lobbying the MP and the Municipal Chief Executive to meet their hopes and aspirations and asked them not to be disappointed. .–adomonline.com
