The chiefs, elders and people of Simiw and Abrem Esiam, all, farming communities in the Komenda Edina Eguafo Abrem (KEEA) constituency of the Central Region (CR) nearly carried the Member of Parliament (MP) for the area on their shoulders when he went there to commission toilet facilities he had constructed for them on Wednesday.
The projects, two separate six-seater toilet facilities, were funded with the MP’s Common Fund.
At Abrem Esiam, the Chief of the town, Nana Bimpong Owusu III, thanking the legislator for the gesture, recounted how the Esiam community had been sidelined in the developmental projects in the municipality and politicians being promising and failing them in their quest to help the community with their needs.
“….we’ve met here this day to witness the commissioning of this toilet facility donated by our MP with his common fund…..and we are very grateful to him because we are always sidelined whenever they’re sharing so if honourable [the MP] has remembered Esiamman and done us this, then we thank him much,” Nana Owusu III expressed amidst cheers from the community members.
The chief moreover urged the MP to go to their aid in providing them with concrete coverts to use complete their two separate roads they were constructing manually, that lead to their farms.
The MP, Honourable Samuel Atta Mills, who, in response did not promise them, assured them that he would see how he could help with the coverts plus some bags of cement for the completion of the said roads.
According to him, he was doing all those things to express his appreciation to them for the love they exhibited for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) during the 2016 elections.
At Simiw, Nana Kwamina Aman-Ano II, the chief of the town, and his people were enthusiastic and overwhelmed with the swiftness the works on the facility had been.
According to him, he did not believe the MP would stick to his promise he made to the community some months ago at a durbar to climax their festival.
According to the chief, the action of Samuel Atta Mills has made him believe that not all politicians were unfaithful and announced that the leadership would meet to plan on honouring him (Atta Mills).
“…..yes, we shall definitely meet and plan if we can honour him with the title ‘Ɔseadzea Ɔyɛ’ (literally, a promise fulfiller) because we are overwhelmed with this development,” the Simiw chief asserted amidst cheers, clapping and shouts from the crowd. He therefore promised that much care would be taken on the facility and taught the community members on how the facility would be used.
Samuel Atta Mills in his address thanked the people of the town for their support and assured them that same at their school would be completed for commissioning by August this year and also, he would make sure a classroom block commenced in 2016, which is left in the bush, would see a facelift.
He finally urged the people of Simiw to always vote for someone who has people’s needs at heart whenever they go to polls to vote but not someone who always thinks about his or her welfare, explaining, “you do not lit light at night to see the face of someone you knew in day time.”
