Desmond Paitoo Must Concentrate On his Mandate, Why the Inferior Communist Tactics?

Press Statement

SETTING THE RECORDS STRAIGHT, DESMOND PAITOO (HON) MUST CONCENTRATE ON THE JOB AND AVOID THE INFERIOR COMMUNIST TACTICS

Good Afternoon ladies and gentlemen of the press.

Thank you for accepting to engage you this afternoon. We have realized a malicious and ill attempt by the opposition MP and his cohorts to mischievously propagate an agenda of false accusations. This we believe is because, Paitoo has woefully failed to deliver on his oceans of promises during the campaign season.

The Gomoa East New Patriotic Party chanced on a jaundiced press conference/statement addressed by the NDC branch of this Constituency.

For the purposes of claruty, we would like to set the records straight, that for fear of losing elections in the nearest future for none performance and mediocrity, the worst MP in Parliament today, has devised a plan to use the media space to consistently throw dust into the eyes of the good people of Gomoa East and the entire Central Region

Fortunately for us as a party, the good people of Gomoa East witnessed the unprecedented performance and delivery of developmental projects in the past four years under Hon. Kojo Asemanyi. However, the former MP, unlike Desmond, did not achieve those things by relaxing and cruising off in his comfort zone, seeking for the slightest opportunity to engage the media and to rant unnecessarily, at the time he needed to focus on the job. Paitoo must focus on his role as MP.

This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism, rather now is the time to bring massive development and to fulfill the outrageous campaign promises to our humble electorates, who did not vote against Hon. Kojo Asemanyi on the basis of non-performance but to create the opportunity for comparison in the nearest future.

As a good citizen of this Constituency and nation, Hon Kojo Asemanyi, even though not the representative of the eighth parliament of the fourth republic, he is still showing great commitment to clear backlogged projects he initiated before leaving office.

It’s noteworthy that Hon. Desmond Paitoo on several occasions has admitted that he cannot undertake any developmental project in this constituency, as may be compared to Hon. Kojo Asemanyi, simply because his party is not the government of the day. This is not only ridiculous, but a clear situation of swapping our coloured television set for an obsolete black and white television, with several irreparable electrical faults.

Hon. Kojo Asemanyi randomly inspects the progress of projects he initiated before leaving office and also makes the necessary contacts to expedite completion when it becomes necessary, and this has been his engagement for the past seven months prior to leaving office as the Member of Parliament for this great Constituency. This is commendable and must be appreciated by all. Where from the seeming jealousy by Mr Desmond Paitoo?

However, Desmond Paitoo, want to sit at his comfort zone, to take credit for completed projects that were initiated by, Hon. Kojo Asemanyi during his term of office, by engaging in unwarranted propaganda, that he (Desmond Paitoo) lobbied for the completion when he has no idea which agency is undertaking the projects.

Kojo Asemanyi continuous to lobby, do regular visitations and follow ups for early completion. This good will and selfless effort to touch lives after leaving office must be commended by Mr. Desmond Paitioo and his propaganda machinery, rather than to run him down.

Hon. Desmond Paitoo has been so uncomfortably bitter and jittery “kpoblibli ” whenever he heard or saw Hon. Kojo Asemanyi embark on such humanitarian activities, just because he lacks lobbying skills and the ability to attract developmental projects to the constituency.

Residents and everyone who is much familiar with Gomoa East, is aware that this constituency is peri-urban in nature and as such there are so many developments to be tackled.
We challenge Hon. Desmond Paitoo to bring to book developmental projects, he lobbied and executed in the constituency, ie roads, bridges, schools, creating employment opportunities etc., but not to claim credit for projects that was initiated/completed by Hon. Kojo Asemanyi.
At the end of his term of office his performance shall be assessed by the projects he initiated and executed, but not the communist inferior tactics he want to use to “steal” projects he has no idea at all how it was started/completed.

As a former member of Parliament, Hon. Kojo Asemanyi believes greatly in Advocacy and lobbying to effect the needed changes the people so much desire, however for the frustration of Hon. Desmond Paitoo who succeeded in becoming the member of Parliament through propaganda and palpable lies, but in reality has nothing to offer the poor electorates he deceived, and has decided to continually engage the media with tales and lies instead of working hard to achieve his outrageous campaign promises for which he was voted for.

Promising to change Gomoa East into a new heaven, has become a nightmare for him, since he has no reason to fail on his colossal promises to the very people, who once upon a time, had a hard working MP in the personality of Hon. Kojo Asemanyi.

Permit me to debunk with all vehemence, the lies pelted against Hon. Kojo Asemanyi by Hon. Desmond Paitoo who is more of an idiosyncratic political comedian rather than what a Member of Parliament should be in actual sense. His predecessor, Hon. Kojo Asemanyi has NOT in the past and will NEVER in the future speak nor act in a way that will obstruct or impede developmental projects from the Gomoa East people.

For us at the NPP GOMOA EAST, we know this hour of reckoning will come, when he shall run into the media to seek a refuge at the time no one is pursuing him, but for his own failure to deliver and the burden of what message to campaign on in 2024.

The good people of Gomoa East are waiting for the world class NVTI School, for the training of Gomoa East youth who have not gotten the opportunity to secure formal education. The very people who benefitted from Hon. Kojo Asemanyi’s “one grandaunt one equipment initiative” are crying for those completing apprenticeship programs today. “ogyefo wo hi” (where is our helper)

They are waiting for the promised roads, drainages, schools, hospitals, bridges etc and they are unwilling to admit that, the campaign promises came out of hallucination and desperation.

With Kojo Asemanyi, we achieved
(THE SUCCESS STORY)

▪️The creation of a new District Assembly for the good people of Gomoa East

▪️Creation of a new divisional command by the Ghana police service

Creation of the Buduburam and Nyanyano-Kakraba District offices of the Ghana water company.

▪️1 grandaunt 1 equipment initiative

▪️1 Constituency 1 ambulance

▪️Donation of a pickup vehicle to the Ojobi District police Command.

▪️Four 1D1F projects with 2 in progress, one at completion stage and yet another one doing production in Buduburam.

▪️Unprecedented expansion of pipe borne water supply at Buduburam, Nyanyano-Kakraba and Gomoa Nyanyano townships, including five boreholes for some rural communities.

▪️Reconstruction of Nyanyano Road became a reality under Hon. Kojo Asemanyi

▪️Reconstruction of Potsin – Awombrew Road is in progress

▪️Construction of safari Road, in Nyanyano-Kakraba, is in progress

▪️ The popular Bambam Bridge has been completed and commissioned. Same contractor is moving to construct the bride near millennium police station, which is among five Bridges, Hon. Kojo Asemanyi lobbied for, before leaving office.

▪️A new six classroom block was completed at Kojoku, Buduburam respectively and the construction of 3 unit classroom block will soon be completed at Nyanyano Kakraba zion, three unit classroom block at Gomoa Nkwantanan, three Classroom unit block at Gomoa Amoanda, three classroom unit block Gomoa Tekyiam, Potsin Cluster of schools etc

▪️Fetteh fishing harbor and town roads

▪️A donation of an ambulance to the St. Gregory hospital, among many others.

The decongestion of the Buduburam traffic which was a serious national security challenge, has now been resolved, these and other success stories are causing the scariest nightmare to the MP and has every reason to worry for 2024. It’s obvious that the only Name scaring Hon. Desmond Paitoo is the returning of Hon Kojo Asemanyi in 2024.

In conclusion, we want to retaliate to the frivolous and preposterous press conference, that, Hon. Desmond De-Graft Paitoo cannot waste this precious four years trusted unto him by the Gomoa East People, he must concentrate on the job and can at any time call on Hon. Kojo Asemanyi, for directions and guidance on how to bring development, the only solution to his frustration and being stranded in parliament.

President Akufo-Addo Commissions Ghana’s Largest Bulk Electricity Supply Point In Pokuase

President Akufo-Addo Commissions Ghana’s Largest Bulk Electricity Supply Point In Pokuase

The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has commissioned the Pokuase Bulk Supply Point, a 330/34.5 kilo-volt substation designed to improve the supply and distribution of electricity for consumers in the northern areas of Accra.

Funded by the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) to the tune of US$47 million, the Supply Point, according to the President, is testimony to Government’s commitment to improving electricity supply in the country.

Commissioning the project on Wednesday, 20th October 2021, the President stated that the Pokuase Bulk Supply Point, whose construction commenced in February 2019, “is also the fourth Bulk Supply Point in Accra, it is the first three hundred and thirty kilo-volt (330kV) Bulk Supply Point in the capital, and it is the most technologically advanced substation in Ghana”.

Siting of the BSP in Pokuase, he explained, was informed by the rapidly increasing load demand for electricity from this part of Accra, as Pokuase and its environs have become load points for power demand, hence being strategically positioned for the presence of such a critical power infrastructure.

“The essence of constructing the sub-station is to improve power supply quality and reliability to some three hundred and fifty thousand (350,000) existing customers of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) in Pokuase, Kwabenya, Legon, Nsawam and neighbouring communities,” he said.

President Akufo-Addo continued, “It is also planned to reduce significantly technical losses in the Ghana Grid Company’s (GRIDCo) transmission system and the ECG power distribution system, ultimately contributing to improving their financial viability.”

Beyond the Pokuase Bulk Supply Point, the President stated that Government is carrying out several other initiatives and projects to ensure that the country is able to meet its increasing power needs, arising out of the country’s growing population and Government’s industrial agenda, through initiatives such as the One-District-One-Factory policy, amongst others.
Besides the Pokuase substation, which was commissioned, work is also ongoing on the Kasoa Bulk Supply Point, which will be the second largest bulk supply point in Ghana.

Once completed, he indicated that the project will address low voltage and frequent power outage challenges caused by increasing domestic and industrial demand in Kasoa, Senya Beraku, Bawjiase and Nyanyanu.

“The fifty-million-dollar (US$50 million) BSP project , again, funded by the Millennium Challenge Corporation under the Ghana Power Compact Programme, will benefit some two hundred and forty-one thousand, five hundred and eight (241,508) ECG customers, and contribute to substantial reduction in transmission losses in GRIDCo’s transmission system. The Kasoa project is expected to be completed before the end of this year,” the President added.

Further, he told the gathering that the national transmission backbone, under construction from the coast to Bolgatanga, had a gap between Kumasi and Kintampo, which has since been completed a few weeks ago.

“Completion of this portion of the Kumasi/Bolgatanga transmission line project will ease the load on Kumasi sub-stations, and become the instrument of power transmission within the Ashanti, Ahafo, Bono and Bono East Regions, and in parts of northern Ghana. In addition to this is the ongoing Tema to Accra transmission line upgrade project to accommodate an increase from one hundred and sixty-one kilo-volts (161KV) capacity to three hundred and thirty kilo-volts (330KV) capacity,” he added.

President Akufo-Addo thanked the Millennium Challenge Corporation and the United States government for their continued support; MiDA for its effective oversight of the project; Elecnor S.A., the main contractors for the procurement, supply, construction, installation, testing and commissioning of the project; as well as management and staff of GRIDCO and ECG.

He also thanked the Minister for Energy, Hon. Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, and his predecessors for their leadership in helping to deliver this project.

President Akufo-Addo stated in conclusion that that “the Akufo-Addo government remains fully committed to ensuring safe, stable and affordable power supply in this country. As we focus on realising the Ghana Beyond Aid agenda, which has industrialisation as its crown jewel, it is imperative that we pursue this goal with dogged determination, to help ensure that every nook and cranny of this country has access to electricity as the main driver of our vision”.

President Akufo-Addo Commissions Engineering Workshops At Cape Coast Technical University

The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on Monday, 18th October 2021, commissioned engineering laboratories and workshops at the Cape Coast Technical University, as part of his 2-day working visit to the Central Region.

The engineering workshops and laboratories consist of an automotive section; a mechanical engineering section which is divided into a welding unit and a fabrication unit; a civil engineering section; and an electrical and electronic section.

The Akufo-Addo Government is upgrading facilities in a number of Technical Universities and Technical Institutes by constructing workshops, and installing the equipment for the use of these institutions.

It will be recalled that Parliament, in March 2018, approved a concessional loan agreement between the Government of Ghana and the EXIM Bank of China for an amount of US$119 million to finance “The Rehabilitation and Upgrading of Equipment in Polytechnics and Technical Institutes”.

Subsequently, Parliament in July 2018 approved the supplementary contract agreement, as well as the commercial contract between the government of Ghana and AVIC International Holding Corporation of China for the implementation of the project.
