No drinking water no campaign – Angry youth tell MP, DCE

The Chiefs and youth of Abura Tetsi in the Abura Asebu Kwamankese constituency in the Central Region have warned their District Chief Executive (DCE) Aba Hagan and Member of Parliament Elvis Morris Donkor against campaigning in the community over their failed promises.

According to the residents, the MP and the DCE have failed to provide portable drinking water and a durbar ground contrary to their promise.

A spokesperson for the Abura Tetsi Royal Palace Nana Kwame Wontumi speaking to Starr News said, “ever since we voted for him as our MP, he gave us 10 bags of cement and 8 metallic and standing pipes. Four years now and we have not seen any development.”

The angry youth added that the DCE lives on their lands and promised them portable water but that is yet to materialize.

“The International Monetary Fund (IMF) water project is also on our lands which supplies water to part of the central region as our chiefs took nothing from leasing the land for the project,” they said.

However, the MP Elvis Morris Donkor reacting to the claims of the angry youth said he will head to the community to hear the concerns of the residents.

“The community has had its fair share of development,” he said.

The MP also stated that none of their claims has come to his notice and does will find out the specific things they are looking and will equally address them.

“It is not true, the water project was fully funded by IMF, and they also benefit from the water”, he added.
