“I Will personally come and lead demo against Akufo Addo and Osafo Marfo If?” – Ofosu Ampofo outrage by horrible roads network in the easten region
As part of his eastern regional Campaign tour to canvass for votes in the upcoming ninth (9) National Delegates Conference in November 17th, 2018.
An aspiring National Chairman of the NDC, Hon. Samuel Ofosu – Ampofo has taken a swipe at President Akufo Addo and Senior Minister Yaw Osafo Marfo for neglecting the good people of Akim Oda Constituency in the Birim Central District, over the poor nature of roads network, which is posing a lot of hazardous challenges, and extreme nightmares to residents living in and around the most affected areas of the Eastern region.
Mr.Ofosu Ampofo himself a native of the region, remarked that he is soo disappointed in the senior minister Hon. Yaw Osafo Marfo, and President Nana Akufo Addo both indigene of the Akyem state in the region for turning deaf ears to the immediate needs of the people. He noted that development have eluded the good people in the region in spite of the fact that , the New Patriotic Party, and government enjoys massive political supports and goodwill from the region during each successive electioneering season, from 1992 till date.
The NDC National Chairman, aspirant revealed furthermore, that during his reigned as Eastern regional Minister, he supervised many facelifts initiatives though the NDC does not enjoy an appreciable number of popular votes during national elections, and opined that, same measure cannot be said under the current NPP administration, which have a President and a stalwart like Mr. Yaw Osafo Marfo who is the senior Minister in government. He went on again and said if the region does not see any major infrastructure in the coming months he will lead and champion a mammoth Street Protest with the people to register their displeasure at the Akufo Addo government, for sleeping on its quest to provide the needed infrastructural facilities, especially motorable roads for citizens who reside in these jurisdiction.
The lead Candidate for the Chairmanship position avowed and conceded also that, the National Democratic Congress hardly gets the needed electoral supremacy over their closest rivalry, but the NDC as a party always ensure that there is equitable distribution of scarce resources for the betterment of all in the region.
He cited and described Cocoa roads, and other notable top class ceremonial roads network as landmark social intervention programs which was earmarked and constructed under the erstwhile John Drammani Mahama regime in the eastern region, as being phenomenon and human centered initiative ever witnessed by Ghanaians, and further taunts the NPP for being bereft of indicators and attributes of what they christened as Social intervention policies, which in effect does not reflect in the living conditions of the masses.
The veteran and astute grassroots master tactician , stated on Okyeman FM at Akim Oda , in the eastern region that he has been to most of the poverty stricken and economically deprived areas in far away northern Ghana to woo delegates for his candidature, and can report that, the situation at that enclaves calls for a worry, and is quite similar to suburbs in the eastern region and prominent personalities within the ruling party owes it a duty in such regard to rescue the very people who elected them into Political office, and he furthermore impressed upon them to take blame for allowing abject poverty to clad their living status since the NPP are the major beneficiaries of the electoral fortunes by the people at the last Polls in 2016.
On the sidestep of his political career, Mr. Samuel Ofosu – Ampofo, noted he has served both party and in government for a Chunk for his life , and his track record is evident for all to seen. He chronicled a number of administrative portfolios, and academic credentials which he has built, and secured over the years, first as a business tycoon and acclaimed politician, and also reminded the over 8,000 plus delegates to be guided by these enviable achievements, and vote for him at Congress as national chairman to steer the affairs of the NDC, and attain victory for the party in 2020.

“For the first time we have president from Okyeman mu in the person of Nana Akuffo Addo.
I’m so so disappointed in Nana Yaw Osafo Marfo and his people in government.
The road from Oda Nkwata to Oda is very terrible.
We have a senior minister from here and Mp as well, I’m so sad and disappointed in them and l want to register it here, if Nana Yaw Safo Marfo and his people do not do anything about this road, l will come here and lead a demonstration against them.
I will let then know that we all deserve our fair share in government, it’s unfair for the people of Akyem to put all their votes in Npp’s basket and suffer like this
For records sake, Oda Ohiam road, was started by the NDC and l have been a regional minister before and l know the level of Development NDC brought to the people even though we don’t get our votes from here
Go to Osafo Marfo’s home town and check Oda -Okyiase road.
Oda, Abirem, Ofoase very terrible roads.
Osafo marfo was was a
colleague member of parliament and l have the right to say this, I am very disappointed in him.
I’m expecting something to be done about the road within 3months period else I will come here and lead a demonstration against the npp.
The whole of the night l couldn’t sleep and I was asking myself, is this Oda? Is this Oda? So this is the road students of Oda Secondary School use ? Why are you so insensitive to the people who voted you into power? The essence of governance is to bring development to the people for them to get value for their votes ,so what are you doing.
Use your radio network and advocate for the construction of these terrible roads.” He posited !
