The Member of Parliament for Mfantseman East, Mr George Kuntu Blankson has given the assurance that the Government of President John Evans Atta Mills would not renege on promises made to Ghanaians.

He said all promises would be fulfilled either in President Mill’s first term of office or during his second term.

“What is needed is patience and loyalty,” Mr Kuntu Blankson said when he addressed a durbar at Immuna in the Central Region. He was invited to explain why the Government had not reconstructed the road to the town.

The MP appealed to Ghanaians not to allow detractors of the Government to deceive them in order to destroy their loyalty to the Government.

“Some of these detractors had ruled the nation for eight years without doing anything for you. If they now come to you to vote for them, ask them why they did not do what they promised to do for you in the eight years that they were in office,” he stated.

Mr Kuntu Blankson assured the people that the Adansi-Immuna road would be reconstructed and that the project had been already awarded on contract.

He noted that all road networks in the Ekumfi Traditional Area were in bad state and it had become necessary for the Government to source funds to do them one after another.

He assured that all roads in the area would see improvement before President Mills leaves office.

The MP said in the mean time, the Municipal Assembly would mobilise a grader to reshape a portion of the road that was in a very bad state to allow bigger trucks to ply on it during their festival this weekend.

Nana Odwir VI, Chief of the town, was not happy with the reshaping of the road and asked the Government not to wait till the election year before coming to reconstruct the road.
