The Member of Parliament (MP) for Mfantseman East, George Kuntu Blankson has appealed to the National Premix Committee to investigate why the fishermen of Narkwa were denied supply of the fuel from February 26 to May 12, 2011.

Mr Kuntu Blankson, who is also the Deputy Majority Chief Whip in Parliament made the call at a meeting with supporters of the National Democratic congress at Narkwa.

He said the people of the community were mainly fishermen and fishmongers and for them to be denied fuel for nearly three months was untenable and needed to be investigated.

Mr Blankson said Government would tar the main road from Nanaben to the town as part of the two roads earmarked to be tackled as soon as funds had been secured.

The NDC members expressed concern about the poor showing of the Party in the town and appealed to the constituency executives and the MP to wake up to the challenge.

They also expressed concern about the dormant Party communication channel and asked supporters to be bold to defend the NDC at all times.
