Residents in the Ekumfi Constituency of the Central region, the home constituency of former President John Evans Atta Mills, have lashed out at President John Mahama and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration for neglecting them despite the loyalty of their son- Prof. Mills and their sacrifices to the NDC since the onset of the 4th Republic.
The people of Ekumfi disclosed this when Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, vice presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), visited the Ekumfi Constituency on the second day of his Central Regional tour.
Speaking at Narkwa in the Ekumfi Constituency, Seidu Adams, a staunch and leading member of the NDC in the constituency, who has recently defected to the NPP, bemoaned the plight of the people of Ekumfi, adding that the NDC had shown total disregard for the people of the area, despite the fact that the Ekumfi Constituency has voted for the NDC since 1992.
“The NDC has not shown good faith to the people of the Ekumfi Constituency. It is as if they don’t realise that Prof. Mills was from here. Let me tell you a bit about myself, I began my activism for the NDC in the Gomoa East Constituency, which has today been split into two constituencies.
“I was a polling station chairman, I was a Communication Officer, a Constituency communication officer, among others. In 2004, I was named as part of the National Organization Committee which was chaired by Samuel Ofosu Ampofo. We worked hard in 2004 but didn’t win and eventually won in 2008.
“I have focused on Ekumfi for the last 24 years, Ekumfi has only voted for the NDC, we have stuck with the NDC and so my brothers and sisters, if we all admit that things are hard in Ekumfi and that we have not received our fair share of development, can’t we blame the NDC? It is clear that the NDC has failed the people of Ekumfi,” Adams added.
