Listen to article

Agona Kwanyako (C/R), May 20, GNA – Two Divisional Chiefs of the Agona Nyakrom Traditional Council have advised politicians to avoid making promises that would be difficult to fulfill.

They said it is very disturbing and disheartening after politicians fail to honour promises, especially those involved the improvement of their living condition.

Nana Ampim Darko V, Chief of Agona Kwanyako and Nana Kobina Botwe II, Adontenhene of the council, gave the advice when Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom, Presidential candidate of Progressive Peoples Party, paid separate courtesy calls on them at their palaces in Agona Swedru and Kwanyako respectively.

They chiefs slammed politicians for such unfortunate behaviours and appealed to them to end them to enable the people develop their confidence in them.

Nana Darko said the people do not know what is “political talk”, “adding that time has come for politicians to bite what they can swallow in order not to deceive Ghanaians”.

The tour of Agona West and East formed part of second tour of Dr Nduom in the Central Region within three weeks.

Nana Darko cautioned supporters of PPP not to engage in any acts that could spark of violence in the coming election and urged Dr Nduom to revisit the idea of establishment of the workers brigade to increase food production when given the nod.

Nana Botwe, Swedruhene expressed concern about poor road networks in the Agona West Municipality especially Agona Swedru saying that roads under construction in the town have been abandoned.

Dr Nduom called on Ghanaians to vote PPP for him to improve economic and social well-being of the people adding that education, water sanitation, health and road construction would be top priorities when given him the nod.

The Presidential candidate said job creation would also be one of the cardinal points since many Ghanaians youth especially unemployed graduates to reduce poverty and hardship.
