The Traditional Leaders and the people of Sakra Wonoo in the Kwabre East District have warned President Akuffo and members of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) including government appointees not to step foot in the community to attend the late Sirr John funeral if government fail to fix road network in the community.
The former Chief Executive Officer of the Forestry Commission, Mr Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, popularly known as Sir John died at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital on Wednesday, July 1, 2020 after an illness.
According to the aggrieved youth and the traditional leaders of Sakra Wonoo said roads in the community are in a deplorable state especially the bridge which links the community and other communities.
Addressing the media, Sakra Wonoo QueenMother, Nana Ama Nyarko charged government and NPP to honour late Sirr John by fixing the abandoned road network and the death trap bridge in the community.
According to Nana Ama Nyarko, President Akuffo Addo and NPP have disappointed the good people of Sakra Wonoo and late Sirr John for neglecting their road network.
“Sirr John served NPP with all his strength and he played a major role for NPP’s 2016 general elections. Even before the 2016 general elections he came here with President Akuffo Addo and Nana Addo promised us he will fix our road when he wins power but our roads have been neglected for 5 good years” Nana Ama Nyarko explained.
She added, “All the projects Sirr John started in this community have been neglected by NPP and President Akuffo Addo”.
“We are warning President Akuffo Addo and NPP members not to come to Sakra Wonoo for the final funeral rites of late Sirr John if their roads are not fixed before the date. Sirr John was a native of Sakra Wonoo and we will never neglect his funeral but we don’t want to see any NPP member including President Akuffo Addo in this community for the funeral”
Nana Ama Nyarko said, “If President Akuffo Addo and NPP respect Sirr John they should fix our road else we won’t allow them to step foot in this community to pay last respect to Sirr John”.
