Chief supports proposed new constituencies
The Chief of Manso Adubia, Nana Doku Appiah Dankwah II, says he and his subjects in the Amansie West district are solidly behind the Electoral Commission, and therefore, look forward to the commission to declare Manso Adubia the capital of the new constituency.
According to Nana Appiah Dankwah II, the quest of the people for the constituency was long overdue, and that they looked forward to the EC, Parliament, and other appropriate bodies to address the issue in line with the provisions of the Constitution of Ghana.
He said at a news conference at the Manso Adubia Community Centre on Wednesday, that the creation of the 45 constituencies, which had received wide public condemnation, following some initial lapses which emerged when the bill was presented before the August House, should not be taken to mean that it was not feasible.
The chief urged the EC to do its legitimate duties without any interference from the two leading parties in the country, namely, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Nana Doku indicated that the emergence of the new constituency should be peaceful as stated by the President of Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference, the Most Rev J. Osei-Bonsu, recently, saying there should be no violence, anger or whatsoever in the creation of the constituencies, which will mature in Parliament on October 3, 2012.
The chief explained that the creation of the constituency would bring development to Manso Adubia and the surrounding towns, which would help the people of Amansie East economically, as the population of the place keeps increasing.
He advised politicians to stop politicising the creation of the constituencies since it was a constitutional function, and that nobody lobbied for it.
