President Akufo-Addo has said he does not feel threatened by the growing calls to vote against the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2024 elections.

He was responding to a question during an interview on Kumasi-based OTEC FM. The host, ‘Captain Koda’ sought to get his reaction regarding what he made of threats by the people of Kwabre and Manso against the ruling party in the next election due to poor road infrastructure in the area.

“No problem”, the President replied. “I am saying people make those kinds of threats; [For] me, [such threats] don’t frighten me.”

Residents in the Kwabre East Municipality had mounted pressure on the government to fix road networks in the area.

The Chief of Mampongteng, Barima Saasi Ayeboafo II, had made it clear that their next line of voting will be dependent on the infrastructural development in the community. Although the Kwabre East Constituency is said to be the voting powerhouse of the ruling New Patriotic Party, the Chief said not much has been done to improve the lives of the constituents.

But the President further stated in his reaction that: “If you decide to vote for the NDC in the general election, it is your choice and that is not my problem. No one will force you to vote for someone”.
