Assin North needs a united NDC, NPP to develop – Chief rallies political parties

Nana Kotroka Frimpong Baah II, Tufohene of Breku in the Assin North District of the Central Region has called on political parties, particularly the New Patriotic Party (NDC) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to ease the seeming political tension and apprehension stifling development in the area.

They should call their members to order, unite their front and tolerate discernment through effective collaboration and sense of purpose to spearhead development.

“Even though there is a remarkable change in the quality of leadership of the people of Assin North, more would have been achieved if the MP is not facing any legal suit,” Nana Kotroka Frimpong Baah indicated.

The Tufohene who doubles as the Acting Chief of Assin-Breku Traditional Area made the appeal at a ceremony organized by Mr James Gyakye Quayson, the Member of Parliament(MP) to present 1,200 streetlights to the assembly for distribution.

On December 30, 2020, a resident of Assin North, Mr Michael Ankomah-Nimfah, filed a parliamentary election petition at the Cape Coast High Court challenging the eligibility of Mr Quayson to be a Member of Parliament.

He contended that the MP was not eligible on the basis that at the time he (Quayson) filed his nomination to contest as a parliamentary candidate, he was still a citizen of Canada.

The Chief thanked the MP for assisting the community and said it would drastically reduce crime to enable residents to go about their normal duties without fear or favour.

Presenting the items, Mr Quayson said the donation was in response to requests made by the residents when he visited them recently and urged the assembly to collaborate to facilitate development.
