Residents of the Asante-Mampong township have expressed delight and a sigh of relief after their MP, Kwaku Ampratwum Sarpong, provided the community with their first traffic lights.
Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh
The solar-powered traffic lights and street lights which cost about GHC180,000.00 was funded through the Member of Parliament’s Common Fund.
The intervention by the MP has been hailed by the residents as timely since it will aid the control and flow of vehicular traffic during the yuletide and beyond.
Commissioning the facility at a colourful durbar of chiefs and people in the Municipality, the MP said the provision of the facility is a remarkable success of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
“It is the first among successive governments to provide the first traffic light to the Municipal capital, a location which occupies no mean a traditional status in the Asante Kingdom, but has been without traffic lights.”
Mr. Ampratwum also promised the people that there will be massive infrastructural development in the municipality in 2020.
He noted that some of the projects that will be undertaken in 2020 include the renovation of 30 schools, provision of 1,500 pieces of furniture to all schools in the Mampong Municipality, to boost effective education delivery.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama has urged all party members, especially appointees during his tenure to go to the grassroots within the party’s branches and constituencies and campaign.
The former president noted that it was important for even former appointees or officials of the NDC to work hard for victory in the 2020 elections, instead of following him everywhere he goes.
