Assin North: Lack of representation in Parliament affecting development

Some concerned youth in the Assin North Constituency of the Central Region, have bemoaned the lack of development in the area blaming it on the lack of representation in Parliament.

According to them, ongoing infrastructure projects had stalled particularly on roads, schools and water threatening youth unemployment rate and resulting in dire social vices.

At a media briefing in Assin Bereku, Mr Ranklin Otoo, the spokesperson for the youth group, said all the projects initiated by the embattled Member of Parliament (MP) for the area, Mr James Gyakye Quayson, have stalled.

This was after he was restricted from holding himself as an MP for Assin North Constituency despite taking part in the swearing-in exercise.

The Supreme Court of Ghana, in a five-two majority decision Wednesday, April 13, ordered the Mr Quayson, to stop holding himself as an MP until the determination of a suit challenging the constitutionality of his election.

The apex court also ordered Mr. Quayson to abstain from any Parliamentary business and restrain from performing parliamentary duties till the substantive case has been heard.

However, Mr Otoo, pleaded with the apex court of the land to fast-track the case to ease the pace of development in the area.
