“Promise and fail you are known for it as a growing attitude, you (NPP) said $1 million dollars one constituency, how I wish the people of Suame, Manhyia, Dormaa and Asutifi South can report that indeed they have benefited from GH¢5 million consistently from 2017 to 2019, there is no manifestation of even GH¢ 5m being spent in Koforidua,” he said.

“Why are we taking GH¢ 150 million of tax payers money in the name of 1D1F when you have already committed over GH¢ 526 million from Ghana EXIM? How much have they added to the employment figures of the country to do this?” he quizzed.
