More than 20 chiefs stormed the office of the MCE to register their worries. The chiefs have set 20th November as their proposed deadline for their next action.
Addressing the natives, Honourable Samuel Adu-Gyamfi pleaded with the chiefs to extend their proposed November, 20th deadline since the government is in no position to meet such a deadline.
Expressing their utmost disappointment in the government, the chiefs asserted that the tonnes of cocoa and revenue that the government gets from the Western North is overwhelmingly adequate. They further questioned why the roads in these areas have been ignored for just too long.
The accompanying youths, threatened to block all roads in the Elubo-Enchi area if their concerns are ignored by the appropriate authorities. They further made it clear that they’re just tired of empty promises from politicians who have decided to take them for a ride upon all their enormous contributions to the national revenue via their mass cocoa productions.
In their concluding remarks, they stressed that they will make the area ungovernable for the authorities if they continue to ignore their pleas.
