Your Husband Promised Us a Bridge, You Came After 4 Years On a Private Pantoon” Afram plains Residents
Hajia Samira Bawumia, the second lady of the Republic of Ghana on her tour in Eastern Region was at Afram Plains on Wednesday 14th October, 2020. In an attempt to justify the abysmal performance of the Akufo-Addo led administration she told the good people of Afram Plains that the reason Afram Plains isn’t developed is as a result of they voting for NDC since 1992.
She was hooted by the people for peddling such falsehood, the residents rather referred her to similar statement made by her husband in the round up to the 2016 elections when her husband now the Vice President came to Ekye Amanfrom in the Kwahu Afram Plains South District.
“This time we are looking even bigger, we are thinking of a big investment in Afram Plains to transform the area and make it a true bread basket of the country. This new programme, God willing under the next NPP administration will see more investments in infrastructure like roads and agricultural inputs for the Afram Plains to support large scale farming as well as social infrastructure like schools, medical facilities, electricity, portable drinking water etc. to make the hardworking populace here comfortable. “We will make Afram Plains the bread basket of Ghana and West Africa. We will construct a modern bridge so as to help you in transporting your farm produce to Accra and the major cities in Ghana.
It will take thinking, investment and commitment and we are prepared and we have the capacity” the above being the words of Dr. Bawumia in 2015.
Hajia Samira Bawumia was further embarrassed when the Chief Imam made it known that all roads started by the erstwhile Mahama administration have been halted and are in bad state and must be given some attention if the NPP want the best for the people Afram Plains.
