Mary Boatemaa Marfo, Sekyere East DCE

The Paramount Chief of Effiduase has publicly expressed his unhappiness about the District Chief Executive (DCE) for Effiduase-Asokore over claim she does not want development in the town.

Nana Adu Ameyaw II, who was speaking to journalists over the weekend, accused the DCE, Mary Boatemaa Marfo of developing Asokore and neglecting Effiduase.

“We agreed with the Assembly that national events, which are celebrated locally are split under the two towns which are Effiduase and Asokore, but the DCE has directed that all events go to Asokore which is not supposed to be so,” he said. 

According to him, the DCE is less concerned about happenings in the district as far as development is concerned.

“She is not doing anything for this town and not bringing developmental projects to the town, why? We have a lot of children here who have qualified for scholarships but our DCE has refused to process them despite several appeals,” he bemoaned.

However, Nana Ameyaw lauded the Member of Parliament (MP) for the area, Dr Nana Ayew Afriyie for his immense support to the town.

He explained that the MP sometimes has to use “his personal money for projects in the town just because the DCE is refusing to process needed documents for the Assembly to embark on such projects.”

There has been tension between the MP and the DCE for months now.

“We want President Akufo-Addo and the Regional Minister to help us; we are lacking development in our district,” the chief appealed.
