The Member of Parliament (MP) for the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba Constituency, Hon. Andrew Dari Chiwitey, has lamented the general poor conditions of living in his constituency.
He said the constituency had been neglected by the NPP Government for the past four years.
In an interview with Yagbon radio, Hon. Andrew placed premium on education, health and road rehabilitation and reconstruction as the ones that have been left unattended to by the Akufo Addo led administration.
He bemoaned the poor state of educational facilities in the constituency saying, “The constituency can only boast of about 474 teachers instead of a GES required standard of 1,447 teachers to fill the various classes in the schools in the District to improve effective teaching and learning”.
He also identified the lack of furniture among the challenges facing the constituency leading to school drop out of the children.
The MP described the Nana Akufo-Addo led administration as a complete waste, noting that his constituency in the last four years has not seen a single development.
The MP who has been in Parliament for the second term said his party, the NDC is the only government that meets the needs and aspirations of the people of the area and for that matter all Ghanaians.
“We are the only party that meets the needs and aspirations of our people and that I know they are aware. And so, if we come back in 2024 we will continue with our development agenda to ensure the growth we want,”he told host Chipo Kwaku.
According to Hon. Anderw, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has been missed by majority of Ghanaians, following the failure of the Akufo-Addo administration to manage the economy well.
“The people have missed the NDC because of our responsiveness and the projects we embarked on,” he said and pointed out that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) created a false impression that they could out-perform the NDC but failed after winning power.
To him, the policies of the government of the day have resulted in untold hardships, with every sector of the economy taking a hit.
“People are disappointed in the NPP government,” he added and explained that although the National Democratic Congress (NDC) could not have solved all the problems of the country, the Mahama-led NDC was better than the Akuffo-Addo led NPP government.
