Defeated incumbent Assemblyman for Padmore Electoral area in Tema, Hon. Charles Amos has blamed Tema East’s under development on what he says is the lack of good leadership.
Hon. Amos says Tema East’s Member of Parliament, Hon. Daniel Titus Glover is the reason for the constituency’s poor development in the last few years.
He said in an interview with SVTV Africa that, even though the MP doubles as the deputy Minister of Transport, his seems not be concern about the bad roads and the damaged streets light in the constituency.
“In all my four years as an Assemblyman, I can say for a fact that, my MP, Hon. Titus Glover has done nothing for Padmore electoral area, and he is the Deputy Transport Minister yet he seems unconcern about the bad roads and streetlights in the constituency. In all my four years, I have not seen even a single project that he has done.” He added.
Hon. Amos furthered that, he once his visited his MP to inform him about damaged streetlights on the roads only to be given GHS100 as transport when leaving the office.
“I boarded a car to my MP’s office to inform him about the damaged streetlights in my electoral area, but he only gave me GHS100 as transport when going back with the excuse that, the lights will be in soon till date, the lights are not ready.”
The incumbent Assemblyman pointed out that, even though an Assemblyman is supposed to work hand-in-hand with his MP, Hon. Titus Glover fails to answer his calls whenever he calls him.
Hon. Amos urges government to resource the Assembly to be able to executive some project at the Assembly level.
He is confident if Tema East gets the leadership question right, development would follow.
Hon. Amos calls for the mentoring of a new kind of leadership in Ghana that is properly equipped to deal with the problems of the country.
