A member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Bole-Bamboi Constituency, Awudu Rafiu has bemoaned how major projects started by the erstwhile John Mahama administration have been left to rot under the Akufo-Addo government.
According to him, work on various social intervention projects meant to transform the lives of residents within the Bole-Bamboi Constituency has been halted since the exit of the previous government.
Mr Awudu Rafiu in a lengthy write-up sighted by Bole based Nkilgi FM and tilted, “We are our own Enemies in Bole- Bamboi” named several examples of projects of former President John Dramani Mahama left to rot. He said he is a strong supporter of the NPP and will always stand with the NPP but will not for the sake of politics sacrifice his tomorrow for today.
He spoke about a Rural Technological Facility Center project at Bole which the NDC under John Mahama had started and which could have trained the youth in welding and electricals that in the future could have propelled them gained admission into the Technical Universities in Ghana. Mr Rafiu said the project that is located along the Bole cemetery road is left to rot.
On Education, Mr Rafiu said the Bole-Bamboi constituency has no educational fund that supports the children financially. He touched on how former President Mahama’s led NDC government had started putting up a College of Education for the people of Bole District only for his party the NPP to abandoned it after winning election 2016.
The Bole District Assembly according to Rafiu generates much revenue in waste generation yet the sanitation situation in Bole the District capital is nothing to write home about.
He went to accuse the DCE of Bole, Veronica Alele Heming for ignoring his suggestion to add a solar power system to add power to the water pumping machine to continuously supply water to the people of Bole since inadequate power supply to the machines was the main problem leading to the water problems in the Bole township.
A worried and lamenting Mr Rafiu stated that he was among those who criticized former President Mahama during his tenure as Member of Parliament for Bole-Bamboi Constituency and Communication Minister.
He said, during those days Bole was not receiving Television and Radio signals from Accra and was always putting pressure on Mahama because his government is in power.
Awudu Rafiu has, therefore, vowed not to support any person appointed by his party who is underperforming since “the bullet let out of a gun will never ask of one’s gender, tribe or political affiliation before it hits you”.
Mr Awudu Rafiu whose write up is already ruffling a lot of feathers in Bole was emphatic that; “When it comes to development of Bole-Bamboi we the people living in the area are retiring the development of the area, and if we don’t wake up to the reality, posterity will judge us soo harshly!”.
The NPP Communications Team member concluded by saying that development has no political colouration and that the people must therefore always look at individuals leading them for development, objectively than to politically colour what he or she does since posterity will judge the leaders of today.
