Chiefs and people of Achaise have expressed profound gratitude to the Member of Parliament for Nwabiagya North constituency Benito Owusu Bio for what they describe as his ‘selfless and listening leadership’.
They say the MP has over the years become a great source of inspiration for many people in the constituency calling on the youth to emulate his selflessness.
According to the people of Achiase, Hon Owusu Bio has surprised them with the rehabilitation of the Asuofua Cedar to Achaise road just as he promised a fortnight ago.
The Chiefs and people took turns to speak at a mini durbar held in the town to honor the MP for delivering on his promise when he visited the Achiase Methodist A Primary school during the Basic Education Certificate Examination.
The Assembly man for Achiase, Ohemeng Prempeh who spoke on behalf of the people could not hide his joy seeing ongoing works on the road.
“We’ve had sleepless nights because of this road. Every morning school buses carrying our children cannot climb the rough, muddy road and sometime we are afraid the bus will summersault.
…we have been insulted severally but we could not fight back because we shared the plights of our people, so thank God that from now, we will have some sleep”. Hon Prempeh noted excitedly.
He explained that but for the delay of the contractor, that stretch of road would have been long tarred, having been privy to some discussion between the Assembly and the MP.
The Assemblyman however called on the contractor, B. K Nsiah construction company to begin working on the road as soon as the rains subside since government has finished every documentation.
“Once again I want to, on behalf of the Chiefs and people of Achiase, say we are very thankful to you Hon Benito Owusu Bio for hearing our cry and not deceiving us like some people thought”. He stressed amidst a loud chorus of thank you to the MP.
Hon Owusu Bio addressing the Chiefs and people pointed that what he has done is only temporary to make people in the area comfortable when traveling on the road, while they await the arrival of the contractor from August.
“As I have said in times past, I am aware that the contract has been given to a company and it is not my work to tar the road but help in some ways.
Even though the contractor will soon begin works here, I needed to help my chiefs, our women and children who use this road daily to avoid any negative occurrences”. The Nwabiagya MP noted.
I am in constant touch with your chiefs through the Presiding Member and we are planning a few surprises for this town soon.
The grading and leveling of the chipping on the road cost a little above GH26,000, this reporter gathered.
