Don’t Blame Your Assemblyman, Blame Yourselves- NBU Programs Manager Charges

Vincent Ohene-Ntow, Programs Manager for the No Business as Usual (NBU) Project has advised residents of Aboabo No. 1 electoral area to shun heaping accusations on their elected assemblyman Hon Mubarak Adamu.

Electorates and residents he said should instead blame themselves for the poor developmental status-quo amidst other challenges, owing to the fact that they all have a part to play in the progress of the electoral area.

His statement came as a response to a number of challenges raised by residents during a town hall meeting event which was organised by officials of NBU.

For some of the electorates who turned up at the event, the elected assembly man has not been up to the task since he was elected into office.

Problems identified at the meeting were; open defecation, inadequate street lights, disposal of refuse at unapproved areas, high charges on the utilization of public lavatory.

Others who spoke to mentioned high rate of criminal activities as another problem faced by people living in the area.

Vincent Ohene-Ntow reacting to the above admonished them to forge together with the assembly man and work towards the development of Aboabo No. 1.

As NBU executives have and are implementing life touching initiatives for the good of Asokore Mampong Municipality, he charged electorates them to do their part for the betterment of the area.

Delivering his statement, Municipal Director for National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) Matthew Agbanu sensitised the gathering on the duties of a citizen as in nation or community building and that of an assembly man.

He informed them that citizens have a major role to play in the development of their area, explaining that the assembly man cannot do it all alone.

Hon Mubarak Adamu in an interview on the sidelines underlined sanitation as a big challenge for him.

He said that due to lack of funds, he is unable to hold frequent clean up exercises to address the situation.
