Akufo-Addo attributes neglect of development in Ekumfi to residents’ vote against Ato Cudjoe

President Akufo-Addo has revealed that his government neglected development in Ekumfi due to the residents’ decision to vote Francis Ato Cudjoe out of Parliament in the 2020 elections.

The president expressed dissatisfaction with the voting pattern in Ekumfi during an interaction with traditional leaders from the constituency at the Jubilee House.

President Akufo-Addo said despite appointing Ato Cudjoe as Deputy Minister of Fisheries and Aquaculture to bring development to the area, the constituents voted him out, which he was not pleased with.

‘Ato Cudjoe was your MP and I made him a Deputy Minister and you voted him out in the last elections and because of that, I did not pay attention to development in your area, I have to be honest with you but since you have brought it up I will pay attention to it.’

Traditional leaders visited the Jubilee House to appeal to the president for increased development to enhance the living standards of their people.

Despite losing the 2016 parliamentary election, Abeiku Crentsil returned in 2020 to defeat Francis Ato Cudjoe.

President Akufo-Addo, after hearing their plea, assured them that, despite his disappointment, he would do his best to develop the area.
