Members of the Concerned Farmers Association of Agogo,in the Asante Akyem North District of the Ashanti Region have called for more support for the incumbent Member of Parliament Lawyer Andy Appiah Kubi who doubles as Deputy Minister of Railways Development in driving more development to constituency.
According to the farmers the MP has effectively discharged his duties since he was elected to represent the people of Asante Akyem North and it is important that the whole community supports him as he seeks to be re-elected in the December polls.
Speaking to Wontumi TV/Radio at a press conference at Agogo, Russia Park, the leader of the Association Mr Kwabena Nimo, said prior to the 2016 election, “reports of Fulani herdsmen were destroying their farms and raping their women were very rampant but the MP kept his words that he would end the phenomenon.”
“This shows clearly that he is a good leader.” He said
The farmers representative also questioned persons the peddling falsehood against the MP by some discontented residents in the area and called on them to desist from the negative practice and support him because “he has good plans for the people.”
Mr. Nimo stated that the reason most people are slandering the MP all is because he is not an indigene but according to him since Lawyer Appiah Kubi is a Ghanaian and had discharged his duties diligently he must be supported.
Before the press conference it was reported that the Regional Police Commander had started investigation into the recent acts of violence in the Agogo township particularly, the recent shooting incident in the town.
