Ashanti Regional Chairman of the NPP, Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, aka Chairman Wontumi, has for the umpteenth time appealed to the Nana Akufo-Addo government to complete the Suame Interchange project.
Akufo-Addo cut the sod for the start of the four-tier interchange at Suame in Kumasi in 2022 and declared that the project is part of his administration's commitment to improving urban mobility in the Ashanti regional capital and the entire region.
The ambitious road project, when complete, will consist of a four-tier interchange at the current Suame Roundabout.
There would be overpasses at the Abrepo, Krofrom, Anomangye, Magazine New Road and Abusuakruwa junctions.
However, the progress of the road project has stalled, prompting the outspoken Chairman Wontumi to speak out at a recent press conference where he addressed journalists in English. The politician and businessman is known for his grammatical challenges when he communicates in English.
"The regional executives have conglomerated here to pray for the government and pray for Nana Akufo-Addo for the Ashanti [Region branch of the] party and the Ashanti Region for the commencement of interchange to become a reality, not cutting sod," he managed to say.
Wontumi added that the completion of the project will earn more votes for the NPP in the region during the 2024 general elections.
Social media users teased him over his poor grammar.
"Ano dey barb what he dey talk sef."
"E don cast… last last"
This is not the first time Chairman Wontumi has appealed to Akufo-Addo to complete the interchange project.
In May 2023, he urged the government to expedite the processes for work to commence on the Suame Interchange Project.
