The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Kasoa, Michael Yaw Ashman Mensah, has dismissed claims by the Minority that the one per constituency promise by President Akufo-Addo was a fraud.
The MCE says the Minority has no moral right to question government on how the disbursement was done or projects the monies were used for.
He said, anyone who will describe the one million per constituency as a fraud should be treated with contempt.
“We do not need members of the NDC Minority to tell us the disbursement has not been done. We need the residents in the constituencies to tell us, ” he said.
Enumerating some of the projects undertaken by government through the one million dollar per constituency, the MCE said, through the initiative, we have managed to construct markets, provided water for some constituencies and schools that lacked access to water in the past.
He explained that, the one million dollar per constituency money are being used for specific projects under the IPEP to address certain needs of the constituencies.
Under IPEP, each of the 275 constituencies was allocated the cedi equivalent of US1million dollars to be invested in infrastructure.
He said ‘the one million per constituency is with the ministry and the ministry is using the money for the 1,000 metric tonnes prefabricated warehouses under the one district, one warehouse policy, 10-seater water closet institutional toilet with mechanised boreholes to address sanitation issues and a community-based solar powered water systems and an ambulance per constituency.
