Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo exchanging pleasantries with Kano Atiakpa III

THE PEOPLE of Ningo are disappointed in the NDC government for turning deaf ear to their plea to give them a district of their own since as they put it their land size and population was larger than Prampram.

The foregone came up when Kano Atiakpa III, Acting President of the Ningo Traditional Council delivered a speech to welcome Rebecca Akufo-Addo, wife of NPP flag bearer, Nana Akufo-Addo to Ningo at the weekend.

He said the people of Ningo had not had water for 9 years now and were unable to cope with the high price of buying the life-giving fluid. According to him, it cost 40GHp to buy a bucket of water.

The chief also took exception to the naming of a proposed airport in their area ?Prampram International Airport? because according to him the land there did not belong to the people of Prampram.

The police station in the Ningo area he said was in a dilapidated state and needed rehabilitation having been built in 1966 by Mr. W.G. Nortey as a social responsibility project to the community.

Today he said the structure leaked whenever it rained, destroying the property of the policemen who live there.

In her remarks, Mrs. Akufo-Addo, a native of the area pointed out that ?anyone who ridicules the free SHS policy should withdraw their wards from the senior secondary school because it is an insult for people to think it?s impossible to implement the policy but wait for 20 years before it can be implemented.?

She urged the people to reject the NDC this year and vote for the NPP saying ?Ningo has not experienced any development. No amenities have been extended to Ningo. I am concerned about the fact that under this government people have to buy every drop of water they need to use in their homes. Today, a bucket of water is 40 Ghana pesewas and sometimes it is even a struggle to get that bucket of water.?

She was accompanied by Dr. Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe, Mrs. Obetsebi-Lamptey, Ayikoi Otoo, Cecilia Bannerman and Sheikh I.C Quaye.
