Alex Djornuboah Tetteh, the Member of Parliament for Sehwi Akontombra, is under fire over charges about road contracts in the Akontombra area.
The status of the roads linking the area’s many settlements has become a major worry, affecting the largely agrarian areas.
Yussif Salifu Muphtaw, former NPP Youth Organizer for the constituency, challenged the MP’s allegations about road contracts during a recent news conference in Sehwi Nsawura.
Muphtaw said that, with the exception of the Wiawso-Akontombra and Nsawura-Yawkrom highways, no contracts for roads in the constituency had been issued.
He voiced worry about the inability of local farmers to carry their goods to markets due to bad road conditions.
Emmanuel Appiah-Kubi, a former district chief executive during former President John Agyekum Kufour’s tenure, also accused the MP of sowing strife among party members and using a dictatorial style to decision-making.
He expressed reservations about the party’s existing strength, implying that changes in the MP’s leadership style are required for victory in the next 2024 elections.
The charges about road contracts and internal party strife have stirred debate, raising concerns about the MP’s leadership and development plans in the Akontombra area.
Residents and party members are waiting for additional developments and reactions from the MP ahead of the 2024 general elections.
