The late Sir John
THE LATE Lawyer Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie’s soul is certainly not resting in peace at the Sakora Wonoo cemetery right now.
The New Patriotic Party (NPP), the party he served faithfully all his lifetime, has neglected Sakora Wonoo, his hometown.
Virtually, all developmental projects in Sakora Wonoo have stopped abruptly ever since the ex-NPP Scribe died.
For instance, works on a major bridge project in the town has also stalled, with the contractor leaving the site.
The bridge under discussion is very important as it connects Sakora Wonoo with the other nearby communities.
The residents don’t know when the contractor will return to site.
This unpleasant development has sparked anger among residents of Sakora Wonoo in the Kwabre East District.
According to the townsfolk, Owusu Afriyie aka ‘Sir John’ contributed massively to the NPPs transformation when he was alive.
They said at least the ruling political party should considere Sir John’s sacrifices for the NPP and help his hometown.
The Queenmother of Sakora Wonoo, Nana Ama Nyarko, predictably, is also not happy, Press1News is aware.
She said she is surprised about the NPPs total neglect of Sakora Wonoo after Sir John’s sad demise.
“The abandoned bridge project is making life difficult and unbearable for us” she openly bemoaned.
Nana Ama Nyarko was speaking with Kofi Asante Ennin of Akoma FM and it was monitored by Press1News.
The Queenmother is passionately appealing to the authorities concerned to quickly fix the bridge to ease their burden.
“All business activities in the town have been adversely affected as we cannot move to the other communities.
“We are all aware of Sir John’s contributions to the NPP so they should consider that and come to our aid”, she pleaded.
As a reminder, Sir John, when he was alive, consistently declared his deep love for Sakora Wonoo and its people.
He managed to secure developmental projects for Sakora Wonoo but they have all been abandoned after his death.
