In a recent turn of events, John Dumelo, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for Ayawaso West Wuogon, has levelled accusations against the constituency's incumbent Member of Parliament (MP), Lydia Alhassan, alleging deliberate hindrance of crucial development initiatives.
Mr Dumelo claims that the NDC has undertaken significant projects, including the donation of streetlights intended for installation in the constituency.
However, he asserts that these initiatives have been met with obstruction, leaving essential areas in the dark.
The parliamentary candidate specifically points out the stalling of work on major storm drains within Ayawaso West Wuogon, posing a potential risk to the safety of residents.
He emphasizes the urgency of addressing these issues and warns of personal intervention if the incumbent MP fails to take action.
Mr Dumelo voices concern about the prevailing insecurity within the constituency, emphasizing that little progress has been made in the last four years.
Incidents of phone snatching, particularly targeting students, have raised alarm, with Mr Dumelo noting a recent fatality linked to such crimes on the Legon Business School road.
He states, “It is surprising that up till now nothing has been heard from the sitting MP. It is as if she doesn't care.”
Mr Dumelo expresses frustration, indicating that despite his previous donation of streetlights to Legon authorities, the impediments faced in executing solutions are hindering progress.
The NDC Chairman of the constituency, Bismark Aborbi Ayertey, echoes Mr Dumelo's sentiments, expressing dismay over the lack of developmental projects.
Mr Ayertey urges eligible voters to consider a change in their voting pattern in the upcoming election, emphasizing that doing so could pave the way for enhanced living standards through meaningful development initiatives.
