Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin has stated that government has not done anyone a favour by constructing those roads.
Following the remarks of some government communicators that Ghanaians will retain the Mahama-led administration come 2016 for undertaking a number of road construction projects across the country, the Okyehene, Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin, has stated that government has not done anyone a favour by constructing those roads.
“You have not done anyone a favour by constructing roads. As a government, your duty is to construct roads. It is part of government’s duty to build infrastructure and offer the citizenry better living standards,” he noted.
Adding: “When government refuses to construct these roads and others subsequently decide to do it, the only thing government says is ‘thank you'”
The Okyehene also stated that about 85 percent of the youth in Ghana are unable to pay tax because they are unemployed. He however, advised the youth not to engage in any wrongful act because of the current economic situation.
Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Pani again called on past and present governments to be genuinely concerned about the plight of Ghanaians and refrain from politicising everything.
“Let us help everybody because President Mahama is doing the work for Ghana. He is not doing it for NDC or NPP. It looks like everything in this country is NPP and NDC. Whatever developmental project any political leader undertakes is for Ghana not for NDC, NPP or any other political party.”
