Hon Hawa Koomson And Hon. Kow Quansah Hayford Lost Touch: Ignore Them

The communication  bureau of  Mfantseman constituency has listened with shell-shocked  and disappointment, a pronouncement made by MP for Mfantseman,the 21% score Member of Parliament for Mfantseman on the ticket of NPP (Mr.Ekow Quansah Hayford) being franked by  MP for Awutu Senya East, who doubles as a minister for business development, Hon. Mavis Hawa Koomsonin aka there can’t be any meaningful dams etc response to questions from Mankessim Based Coastal FM morning show host, relatively to certain projects in Mfantseman.



In the pronouncement, the minister for special  development was heard, and  categorically stated among  other things, that   Mankessim Market, Saltpond Victoria park and Yamoransa mini market  are $IM per Constituency funding projects. But, in the interview you could hear that someone was behind coaching the minister on to what to say, which  belied  all  her claims. The MP of Mfantseman also rode  on the back of  blatant lies told by the minister coupled with scathing response and by extension labelled the good( NDC) liars.


For the record,  it is a trite knowledge that neither  Madam Hawa Koomson nor Mr Kow Quansah Hayford can  subject themselves to any  integrity test  in  order for them to call us  liars. For Madam Hawa Koomson, she is among the tall lists of  the  corrupt appointees of Nana Addo to face trial in the next JM’s government for willfully causing financial loss to the state as far as one village one dam  is concerned. Ghanaians have now noticed that the much- touted 1V1D was just for sloganeering and not meant to be fulfilled. “Otherwise this woman wouldn’t have admitted that gh250, 000 could not build  a meaningful dam and yet misapplied it on dugout or pond which all have dried up beyond recognition- clear insults to the Northerners”.  A woman  who expended Gh800,000 on just website needs no further particulars to put her behind bars.


Again, we actually took aback hearing  the most  underperforming MP ever in the history of Mfantseman calling us  liars. On the lighter vain, one would ask the MP for Mfantseman why he even performed abysmally in the last survey conducted by the university of Ghana, political sciences department ( 21%) if indeed his assertions on the  are factual?.


Today, people of Amasamkrom, the 21% MP cleared their  farm lands without a dime under the the guise of 1D1F, are still gnashing their teeth for the  unfulfilled promise. And this man calls us liars?.


Also,none of the  toilet projects mentioned had even seen the the light of the day. You promised one in Yamoransa and the trench has become a deathtrap. Such a disappointing MP called a party that has bequeathed the  constituency so many tangible projects; Biriwa Polyclinic, Saltpond Nursing and Midwifery Training College, Gyedu Ultra- Detached Police and Court Complex, almost (8) CHIPS Compounds,Saltpond Harriom and Mankessim Tarred Roads and many (completed and uncompleted projects) in all aspects of life  within four years of the visionary John Dramani Mahama


Now, a  mistake of an MP stressed further on Yamoransa and Mankessim Markets as $1m per constituency projects. First of all, the   1m per constituency has now turned a mountain of ridicule or a mirage, and wonder  why Osono Party still makes references to it.


We therefore challenge the MP, the 21% score man to  point to us where exactly these projects under this failed initiative are?


On records, we cut sod for the  Yamoransa market project in August 2015, funded by  SIF ( local Government) and the Mfantseman Assembly then, at the time Mr Kow Quansah Hayford was somewhere in Tarkwa doing Galamsey,so how could one trust such an MP by attempting  to attribute this project to   $1m per constituency initiative when funds were already  secured and  demolished the old structure to  commence work before we left power? Why the funding agency board  at the site is still SIF and Mfantseman and not otherwise? Again, the Municipal Assembly secured  £810 million trend facility to dredge and dessilt  Mankessim Ansabora gutters ,design Mankessim drainage roadmap etc,and so the assertion that NDC did nothing is a nonstarter.

Are the MP and his NPP really serious at all ? Well, there is an adage that,” if the gods want to kill you, they first make you go mad”.


If not certain demands from  land  owners [very surprised tho…]  would have finished yamoransa Market project before leaving office. However, the delay did not even change the scope nor the  two funding agencies. Hon. Kow Quansah Hayford should prove us wrong with further and better particulars other than the bare facts general public know about . We, therefore, encourage the general public to disregard the blantant lies told by Hon. MP for Mfantseman and, treat his thoughts  with disdain.


Reemphasizing four –  year  achievements under His Excellency John Dramani Mahama are: pavement of  the entire mankessim market, adding over hundred  more sheds, drainage system, 10km Mankessim asphalt projects( which has been halted, Krofu road ( also halted) Krofu health centre, toilets facilities,  installation of mankessim streets lights, building of  lockable stores, school blocks, Gyedu Ultra Detached  Circuit Court Complex ,and

Police  Divisional Office, to mention but few projects saw the light of  day under JM in mankessim alone,  compared to your empty- touted projects. It is an insult to the people of Mankessim when Mr. Kow Quansah an MP , who is a native of the area, can never boast of a fully fledged project in his four years yet got the nerve to lie. As we speak, the Astroturf  he touted as his major project has turned a mirage, and nothing is actually happening after laying few blocks to deceive the people months ago. A situation that has angered the youths cautioning the MP to either reinstate the park into its real state or finish the  AstroTurf before November this year. Such an MP got the nerve to call the visionary Party NDC liars?  Are the abovementioned projects in mankessim real or lies ? A conundrum of questions to the people of the Mankessim to answer and judge.


We also state unreservedly, that, the MP lied again about the claim of ongoing Market project  in Mankessim. There is absolutely nothing of the sort.

In fact, the plan to establish an Ultra- Morden Market like JM did in Kotokraba , has always been the ultimate priority to the NDC and work will commence as soon as we return to power God willing 2021 through a proper engagement with the Traditional Authorities,Agencies,Traders and all the necessary Stakeholders.


The funding processes in that regard were  far advanced, to the extent that art design of the facility was mounted on the Mankessim roundabout ( that Gh89,000 was used for  painting alone, another scandal  to be investigated properly and tried in when we assume office in  2021). We thought this govt would continue until the Visionary John Mahama visited Mankessim on 29th April, 2019 and  reiterated his sure  commitment to building Ultramodern Market for the good people of Mankessim God willing in his next govt – a news the markets women received with  joy and  in good faith ,knowing full well His Excellency John Mahama’s track records using Cape Coast, Biriwa, Yamoransa, Saltpond lockable stores, and projects in other places as precedents.


In fact, the  NPP has only  added few wooden shed which are no where near market complex after they had even evacuated a lot of women with no alternative to make a living . Again ,it also amounts to greater  insults to the people of Mankessim  from no less a person  than Hon. Kow Quansah Hayford ( Mr. 21%) a native of the place.

Can Kow Quansah Hayford tell us whether or not he has built  market in Mankessim as he claims? Where did he put it? Or  he alone can see the said market in Mankessim? Is it not a mockery of mankessimmam?


Today, several projects by the previous administration in the constituency have been left to rot, and still Mr 21% knows no shame to speak when he’s apparently preparing to handover to Hon.  James Odzifo Essoun to restore the lost traditions and glory of Mfantseman as ministerial seat.



In conclusion, we are, one more time, giving  Mr Kow Quansah Hayford 24hrs to retract the untruth or  arrange for a debate on his nonexisting projects and ours ( NDC) on the very platform he used to peddle falsehold and  insulted the people of Mfantseman, if he has balls.
