“As for Kumasi, even if we construct roads tarred with gold, they will tell us that we did nothing,” President John Dramani Mahama stated.

The President made the comment when he addressed supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) at the office of the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council on the first day of his three-day tour of the region.

According to President Mahama, the indigenes of the Ashanti Region are not ‘appreciative’ of the efforts made by the NDC government to bring development projects to the area.

“The presidency is working hard so don’t allow anyone to deceive you into thinking that we are retrogressing. As I speak, there are several projects ongoing. We are constructing roads, providing water and electricity. Since I came, we have inspected ongoing renovation works on the runway of the Kumasi Airport. We are fixing instruments at the Airport to allow for both day and night flights. We have also inspected the DIHOC Shoe Factory where there are new machines for producing footwear for the military here in Kumasi”.

“However the Akans have a saying that, the chicken never pleases the hawk no matter how well she dances. But that shouldn’t discourage us. We have noted the promise we made to Ghanaians for which we were voted into power. As for Kumasi, even if we construct roads tarred with gold, they will tell us that we did nothing” the President stated.

“Come 2016, we will account for each one of them; and surely we will be voted into office again” President Mahama added.
