The Acting President of the Sampa Traditional Council, Nana Kwadwo Massah,  has stated that the NDC government has disappointed the people of Jaman North. He spoke passionately on behalf of the chiefs in the area during an end-of-year meeting at Sampa with government officials in the district.

He pointed, “The General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, on a campaign tour in 2008 made a mockery of our roads and asked my people to vote them into power for better roads, but what we see now is an empty promise.”

Nana Kwadwo Massah who doubles as the Chief of Kokoa, near Sampa, and chairman for the meeting which was attended by the District Chief Executive (DCE) for the area, Daniel Nti Ateware and other government officials, bemoaned how the district assembly has over the years, since the time of late President Atta Mills, ignored the fact that Sampa is a district capital and needs to have its roads tarred to suit its status.

“The road has kept so long and no one is telling us why it has not been tarred till now,” he lamented.

Some of the youth of the town had in early 2014 threatened to demonstrate against the DCE following what they termed as his inability to liaise with the sector minister to construct the roads.

Nana Kwadwo Massah said they calmed the angry youth because the chiefs were made to believe that plans were underway to fix the roads, adding that but it was now clear that government was not ready to honour its promise to the people in the area although they voted massively for the NDC in 2008 and 2012 because of the promise.
