The Assin Akropong Youth Association has asked the leadership of the New Patriotic Party [NPP] to call the polling station chairman for the Assin Akropong electoral area, Mr. Charles Asare, popularly known as Amelo, and the coordinator, Mr. Solomon Danquah, also known as Master Solo, to order for blocking projects in the community.
The two officers have been described as Sanballat and Tobiah, who teamed up to prevent any developmental projects from being undertaken in Assin Akropong.
According to the youth, it is obvious that just as Sanballat and Tobiah were enemies of the Jews who made several attempts to stop Nehemiah from rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem, Mr. Charles Asare and Mr. Solomon Danquah have also vowed to prevent the association from achieving its objectives of developing the community.
Stating the reason why they want the two officers to be called to order by the National Executive of the NPP, the group said a three-unit classroom block built by GETFUND, which was lobbied by Hon. Kennedy Agyapong, Member of Parliament for Assin Central, has been abandoned.
The group indicated that the school has deteriorated so badly that construction cannot continue because the building, which was almost 75% complete, pulled itself down.
They said the school would have otherwise been a pivotal project for the NPP party.
The Assin Akropong Youth Association also accused the two officers of being behind the neglect of a solar panel project aimed at powering pumped water to the community, making the community still suffer to get good drinking water.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
15TH FEBRUARY 2023
A CALL FOR IMMEDIATE ACTION
We the members and executives of Assin Akropong Youth Association wish to draw the attention of the entire NPP leadership both national and constituency to the appalling and disrespectful attitude of the polling station chairman for Assin Akropong Electoral area Mr. Charles Asare popularly known as Amelo and the coordinator Mr. Solomon Danquah also known as Master Solo.
These two people have teamed up to prevent any developmental project from being used or initiated in Assin Akropong which would greatly affect the fortunes of the party.
The NPP Polling station chairman and the coordinator have both vowed to prevent the association from achieving its objectives of developing the community. This is said for the following reasons.
A three (3) unit classroom block was built by GETFUND which was lobbied by Hon. Kennedy Agyapong, MP for Assin Central has been abandoned.
This school has deteriorated so badly that construction cannot be continued, The building got to its roofing stage but due to lack of supervision and negligence, a building which was almost 75% completed pulled down by itself.
This school would have otherwise been a pivotal project for the NPP Party especially as the party approaches the general elections.
A solar panel project aimed at powering pumped water to the community has also been neglected and as such, part of the community still struggles to get good drinking water. This project would not only project the NPP Party into the limelight but would also reduce the hardship in the community.
The last but not least, a lot of miscommunication in the community on developmental projects initiated by them.
They normally do this to influence the people to accept their political slot agenda as the best way to go as a community.
These are a few reasons why we call upon the national body to call the chairman and coordinator to order and to help the community attain the developmental status that it acquires.
Find below pictorial evidence of the school and solar project.
