Funds meant for bridge over River Afram to be diverted by Government – Betty Krosbi Mensah

Hon. Betty Krosbi Mensah (MP – Kwahu Afram Plains North Constituency) has indicated that, President Akufo-Addo has diverted funds meant for the construction of Adawso – Ekyi Amamfrom – Donkorkrom roads.

In a joint press release with Hon. Joseph Appiah Boateng (MP – Kwahu Afram Plains South Constituency), she indicated how the Nana Addo led government has diverted funds meant for development in Afram Plains to his strong holds.

“This government since it’s inception in 2017 has clearly and in many cases showns it’s bias against the good people of Afram Plains. We would all recall how the previous government made an arrangement with legal backing for the construction of a University of Environment and Sustainable Development (UESD) campus in Donkorkrom which was hijacked and taken to Bunso, the hometown of the President” the release stated.

The release further added that, the order calling on Parliament to suspend plans for the construction of the roads per the initial agreement was signed by the Secretary to the President.

“It’s very sad, unfortunate and disheartening to read from the Ministry of Roads and Highway and the Ministry of Finance through a letter signed by the Secretary to the President, Mr. Asante Bediatuo, calling on Parliament to suspend plans for the construction of the roads per the initial agreement approved by Parliament”.

The government is said to be making arrangements to divert the approved funds meant for the construction of the Adawso – Ekye Amanfrom – Donkorkrom, for construction of by-passes on the Accra – Kumasi road from Osino to Konongo.

According to the release, provision of food security in the country, connecting the people of Afram Plains to the rest of the country and creating physical access to the rest of the country were reasons behind the approval of the funds for the Adawso – Ekye Amanfrom – Donkorkrom project.

The legislatures, representing the people of Kwahu Afram Plains North and South are asking what then happens to underlining reasons, now that the fund has been diverted.
