Upper Denkyira West DCE counters MP’s development claims

Richmond Koduah – DCE Upper Denkyira West

Mr Richmond Koduah, the District Chief Executive for Upper Denkyira West District in the Central region, has debunked claims by Daniel Ohene Darko, Member of Parliament for the Upper Denkyira West constituency that he provided a Network Mast and constructed deplorable roads in the District.

The MP reportedly stated that he asked the Minister of Communication and the Ghana Investment Fund to Electronic Communications (GIFEC) Project to complete networks at Jameso Nkwanta, Nyinawusu, Besease, Brofoyedru and Treposo.

But Mr. Koduah, speaking to this paper on Wednesday, said MP Darko’s claims are false.

He explained that the network mast that powers Breman Brofoyedru, Treposo, Anwinani and Besease were mounted long before the MP was elected to represent the people in the area.

According to him, the mast were mounted there as a gift and so wondered how the MP could claim credit for it.

The DCE, therefore, advised politicians to desist from the attitude of lying to the electorate for political gains.

Meanwhile, the Member of Parliament for Upper Denkyira West Constituency in the Central Region, Daniel Ohene Darko, has appealed to the Church of Pentecost to build schools in the rural areas of the country. He said the Church has built so many churches in the rural areas, but these areas are without schools.

His appeal was directed at the leadership of the church to reconsider their priorities and build more schools at the basic level to take care of the educational needs of the rural communities.

Speaking at the Church of Pentecost at Ayanfuri in the Upper Denkyira West District recently, the MP stated that his visits to all nine rural communities revealed that the most beautiful buildings in the communities are the Church of Pentecost buildings, yet children as young as 4 years have to walk between 3 to 4 kilometers to attend KG elsewhere.

He argued that without education at the basic level, he wondered how the children could read the Bible and understand the gospel.

Ohene Darko emphasised that Education was the key to life and development for which reason he promised to build KGs in the communities that are without one. He said he had cut the sod for the construction of a KG at Nyameadom in his constituency, where the children walk 4 kilometres to Besease to attend KG s, which is difficult in the rainy season.

The MP hoped to build more in these rural communities.
