Hon. Sosu boldly tells residents, “I didn’t promise you roads during campaign”

Hon. Sosu boldly tells residents

Francis-Xavier Sosu, Member of Parliament for Madina, has reminded his constituents that he did not promise to fix the roads during the campaign season last year because he understood that was not the role of an MP.

Residents accused him of not following through on a campaign promise he made to them during the previous election.

Residents have expressed their dissatisfaction with the area’s poor road network.

According to the villagers, the MP assured them in a statement that he would fix the deplorable status of the road that runs from Amrahia and Danfa to the Ayimensa toll booth.

Residents claim that in his campaign to win the 2020 elections, Francis Sosu was adamant that the terrible road network would be restored, even accusing the then-sitting MP, Boniface Abubakr, of failing to solve the issue.

“We had hoped that the current National Democratic Congress Member of Parliament for Madina Constituency, Mr. Francis Sosu, would pick up where Ahaji Boniface left off, but after all the pledges to win the hearts and minds of the citizens, nothing has been done.

We are aware of Alhaji Abubakar Saddique Boniface’s efforts to have the roads in the area reconstructed before he left office as a former Member of Parliament for the Madina Constituency and the first Minister of the defunct Ministry of Inner-City and Zongo Development under President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

“During his time as MP, Alhaji Boniface had local leaders and dignitaries visit the roadways to declare the contractor’s presence.”

In a statement, Mr Sosu responded to their claim, saying, “First and foremost, the fact that the issue of roads is being raised during a year when government has touted as the “Second Year of Roads” shows the government’s insincerity and failure with respect to its responsibility and promises to the people of Ghana.”

After two years of government promises to fix Ghana’s roads, nicknamed “First and Second Years of Roads,” it is clear that the Akufo Addo-Bawumia-led administration has been involved in rhetoric rather than real development.

The Member of Parliament (MP) for the region cannot be blamed for this abandonment of responsibility.

This also demonstrates the Assembly’s inadequacy and incompetence in performing her duties as the President’s Representative and the Constituency’s primary development agent, as led by the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for the area.

“Second, the 1992 Constitution of the Republic and the Local Government Act 2016 (Act 936) define the roles and responsibilities of Members of Parliament and Metropolitan/Municipal/District Chief Executives in detail.

As the Member of Parliament for Madina Constituency, it is my responsibility to draw the attention of the Executive Branch of Government to the challenges that the area faces whenever the opportunity arises.

“I have done so and will continue to do so when the opportunity arises, including through questions on the floor of Parliament to the Minister responsible for Roads and Highways, and through questions to Ministers designate responsible for related sectors during the Vetting of Nominees as a Member of Parliament’s Appointments Committee, among other things.

The fact that the Akufo Addo-Bawumia-led Administration has failed the people of Madina Constituency for the past four years, despite the fact that the former MP for the area also served as a Minister of State, demonstrates how much the NPP Government led by President Akufo Addo has failed the people of Madina Constituency.

As a result, despite my being in office for only eight months, the calls for me to fix the roads indicate the Constituency’s lack of attention to growth and the people’s trust in me to address this issue.

This lack of urgency about issues of local administration and community development in Ghana is reflected in nine-month delays in the nomination of Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executives.”
