Media personality and political activist, Kwame A Plus has berated pro-government voices attacking the people of Assin North for voting against the New Patriotic Party (NPP) during the June 27 by-election.
The critics claim voters were ungrateful to have rejected the NPP after massive infrastructure projects were rolled out in the constituency in the weeks to the vote.
By way of defense, A Plus reminded the critics that former president John Dramani Mahama provided massive infrastructure to the Ashanti Region, the NNP’s stronghold, in the run up to 2016 vote yet he lost.
His post dated June 30 was accompanied by a list of over 40 projects the Mahama government purportedly rolled out across the region.
The post was also accompanied by a video clip of an NPP constituency officer calling on president Nana Akufo-Addo to punish the people of Assin North by diverting development projects from there to the Ashanti Region.
- Mahama did all these but lost Ashanti Region in 2016 and 2020.
