Manhyia North MP wants ‘diversion’ of €20m loan probed

The Member of Parliament for Manhyia North has called for a probe into how a 20 million euro loan approved by parliament for the development of Kumasi roads was diverted to the Asawase Constituency.

Collins Owusu Amankwaah is accusing the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government of deliberately denying Kumasi its fair share of road development.

He told Luv News the roads at Manhyia North are in a deplorable state because of a political move by the NDC administration to score cheap points in the Asawase Constituency.

According to him, he has tabled the issue before the Roads Minister calling for a probe into how the Kumasi town roads loan was disbursed.

Mr Amankwaah was speaking to Luv News when he donated an ambulance, medical equipment and drugs valued at GH85,000 to health centres at Buokrom and Moshie Zongo.

The MP has for some time now been decrying what he calls selective political justice in the construction of roads in Kumasi.

He accused the transport Ministry last year of lying about the completion of Krofrom town roads in his constituency,  while other streets in some perceived NDC strongholds were paved with bitumen.

Many streets within the Asawase constituency- Aboabo, Sawaba, Parkoso and some Zongos perceived to be the strongholds of the NDC have been asphalted.

“Having been significantly neglected for some time, it is high time the roads are developed. The NDC government’s neglect was deliberate and calculated because they left the main roads to work on others at the outskirts of town,” he said. 

Meanwhile, the Manhyia North MP has been spreading laterite on some of the Krofrom town roads to make them motorable.
