Published

on

The immediate past president of the Republic of Ghana, H. E. John Dramani Mahama has promised to give salaries to all both elected and appointed members of various District, Municipal and Metropolitan Assemblies when voted back into power.

Surprisingly, Assembly members within Tano North, Tano South, Asutifi North, Asutifi South, Asunafo North, and Asunafo South, all in the Ahafo Region, have spoken against that promise and termed it as a palpable lie and deceptive promise. Addressing the media at, Goaso, the Ahafo Regional Capital in a press conference.

The Dean of presiding members who is also an Assembly member for Asuokwao Electoral Area of Tano North in the Ahafo region, Hon. Adom Agyei Kenneth debunked some false publication peddled by purported Assembly members who claim to support the former president.

Hon. Adom, who spoke on behalf of the Assembly members called on the National security, with immediate effect to arrest those unscrupulous people because they don’t represent even a single electoral area in the region.

Mahama's Promise to Pay Assembly Members Doesn't Hold Water - Ahafo Assembly Members

The presiding member for Asunafo North Municipal Assembly, who doubles as Assemblymember for Fawohoyeden Electoral Area, Hon. Jones Afriyie Anto also hammered on a rounded pricket that, Ghana’s Constitution and the Local Government Act does not permit them to engage in partisan politics, however, if they are allowed to participate in partisan politics, then, they will rather prefer H. E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the president of the Republic of Ghana to the former president John Dramani Mahama.

Former President Mahama, who was once an Assemblymember but neglected them during his administration, he couldn’t even provide the needed logistics to them. H. E. Nana Akufo-Addo has been able to provide them with motorbikes.

Some of the members added that the creation of the Ahafo Region is even a valuable asset to them because they can easily be identified in the governance system. There are major road Infrastructures under the leadership of H. E. President Akufo-Addo in the region. Bediako-kasapin Road, Akrodie-Asumura Road, Norbeko-Sankore Road, Bomaa, and the like. The Assembly members called on every tom, dick, and harry to disregard ex-president Mahama’s promise of paying them because it is a hollow promise which lacks substance. They concluded by endorsing the four more for Nana Agenda.
