President Akufo-Addo has stated that the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Mr Eugene Arhin, does not give him breathing space because of the people of Awutu Senya West.
He said this at Papase, a town in the Awutu Senya West Constituency, when he officially cut sod for the ongoing Bawjiase-Ofaakor Road.
“Anytime he hears about something, he comes to me, discussing Awutu Senya West and that is part of the reasons why this road has gotten to the level that we are all witnessing,” the President said.
Due to the way Mr Arhin has been mounting pressure on him to send some of the finalised projects to the people of Awutu Senya West, he opined that the Director of Communications is one of the greatest blessings to them.
At Chochoe, where he commissioned a gas cylinder manufacturing factory under the One District One Factory (1D1F) Project, the President promised to upgrade the Akoti Junction-Senya Beraku Road, assuring the chiefs and the people that it would be completed before December 2024.
“In honour of Haruna Esseku, who comes from here, I have instructed the Minister for Roads and Highways to commence work on the construction of the Akoti Junction to Senya Beraku Road,” the President said.
“As you know, one of your very own, the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Mr Eugene Arhin, has done a very good job in lobbying for this road to be constructed just as he did for the Kasoa-Bawjiase Road and I assure you that it would be completed before 2024,” he added.
The President also said, “it is a public knowledge that he [Eugene Arhin] has the intentions of contesting on the ticket of the NPP.
s“If he is successful in the NPP Parliamentary Primaries, Nananoom, I am confident that he will do an excellent job as a Member of Parliament for you and I appeal to all of you to support him if and when that time comes,” he entreated.
The President’s disclosure of the man who lobbied for these road projects in the Awutu Senya West Constituency brings finality to the debate on social media on this issue.
As tradition demands, President Akufo-Addo further called on the Paramount Chief of the Awutu Traditional Area, Abokuade Agyemang Wyettey Otabil III, where he and the traditional authorities discussed other development related issues
