I Had Wanted To Lock The Assembly, Members Don’t Have The Municipal At Heart – Paramount Queen Mother of Offinso Traditional Area Fumes
It has been about two consecutive times the Offinso municipal assembly has failed to elect their Presiding Member to preside their meetings and to champion developments in the municipal and it has got a lot of people talking including the citizens, media, the traditional chiefs and Queens, among others.
In a recent exclusive interview with Nana Ama Serwaah Nyarko, the Paramount Queen mother of Offinso Traditional Area, she revealed that she once made an attempt to even lock the doors of the assembly for their inability to elect a Presiding Member.
”Whenever I remember this, it begins to pain me so much that I don’t even understand why they’re doing that. I once planned of locking the assembly because if you cannot elect your presiding member for about two consecutive times then it means the assembly is not functioning.” She fumed.
She said this in an interview with DEMOCRACY, a reporter from the Offinso based LiFE FM, after a major cleanup exercise organised by her outfit and other stakeholders in the Offinso south municipal.
She expressed her worry on the fact that the assembly members don’t have the municipal at heart because they always think of their personal gains to the detriment of the municipal at large.
The Queen mother even disclosed the fact that the Paramount chief has called them on several occasions on this same matter but they are not willing to work it out as the constituency demands.
”They just don’t want to do it, they are doing all these out of politics and it’s very painful for the municipal to suffer this way. The Offinso natives at the assembly do not think about Offinso’s improvements, but their personal gains and if they don’t take care, I will personally contest to be voted for…” she sadly said.
On Saturday, the Queen mother let the citizens and other stakeholders like the churches, Muslim communities, schools, the citizens and many others in a cleanup exercise to tidy up the whole Offinso city.
