The Member of Parliament for Fanteakwa, Kwabena Amankwa Asiamah has charged President John Dramani Mahama and other future presidents to ensure they develop their village while in office.

According to him, it is disgraceful and regrettable that the villages or towns of most of the past presidents lack basic social amenities, a situation which he described as unacceptable.
The MP’s comments comes in weeks of the difficulties in finding a suitable place to accommodate the late President Mills, as reports are that the hometown of ex-President Mills is currently not in the best of shapes to welcome the several foreign dignitaries who are expected to pay their last respect to the late President.

Speaking on Asempa FM, Hon. Asiamah stated that all presidents must ensure that their hometowns are provided with basic facilities like schools, hospitals and a motorble road, irrespective of the political talk that may arrive, knowing the importance of such developmental projects.

“We can look back at all the towns of all former Presidents from Nkrumah to Mills, none of the villages are well developed, that is from Nkroful to Ekumfi Otuam, this is very unfortunate and must not continue” he said.
