The Member of Parliament for Ejisu constituency, Mr. Kwabena Owusu Odoum who doubles as the deputy Road and high Ways minister in his bid to support his constituents have ended up giving troubles to residents.
Information gathered by the ÀYANEWZ has it that the MP has arranged 1,400 bags of rice to be given to his constituents through the chiefs in the various communities.
But residents say, they wish the MP shouldn’t have done the honor because…given 4.5kg bag of rice to each household irrespective of the number of people living in a house is an insult to them and a recipe to deepen their woes. ‘’ We need support but not this insult. My house contain 20 people, how can they share this rice if they really in need of food’’, one of the resident quires.
The 4.5kg bag of rice were given to them without any assorted item or even salt attached to it… and this was where the complains ignited. The outfit were told that some landlords decided not to share the rice due to the huge number of people living in the house heighten tempers of which they grilled each others of how to share the rice. They expressed their disappointment for an MP and a minister to have done such an affront gesture. ‘If we were to share the rice each person will not get half cup of rice’’, they complain bitterly appealing to the president to provide sufficient food the communities to enable them stay indoors.
