The Youth in Ningo Prampram Constituency in the Greater Accra Region have expressed worry that lack of social amenities in the community hinders progress.
According to them, though they have a Member of Parliament (MP) who has served the constituency for the past twenty years, development in the community is nothing to write home about.
Most of the communities lack electricity, potable water and accessible road network.
They alleged that the entire township of Ningo is served with only one Zoomlion container, adding that road network in towns appear to be in good shape but that of the rural areas are not accessible.
‘Most of our roads leading to Ningo especially the rural areas are not accessible,’ they said.
Speaking on Starr today hosted by Bernard Nasara stationed at Ningo, they said the rate of school drop -out is on the increase in the area, accusing the incumbent MP for poor performance in the constituency.
The Chairman of Association of Okada business, Noah Dowouna alleged that, the only clinic serving the community does not have a doctor stationed there to examine patients.
He said their taps do not flow through connected pipes, as they have to purchase water from ‘Kufour gallons.’
According to him, due to high unemployment rate confronting the youth, they have resorted to Okada business.
‘We have been left out of the job creation due to our lack of education. My wish is that our youth will have jobs and poverty will reduce in the constituency,’ he expressed hope.
E.T Mensah, Gyataba, Sam George and others are contesting for the Ningo Prampram seat come the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) primaries in November 21, 2015.
