Emmanuel Adjei Ahwire, a Member of Parliament(MP) for the Atwimah Nwabiagya South Constituency, was driven out of office by residents of the Ashanti towns of Amankyea and Kobeng.
The Member of Parliament visited the constituency as part of the “Talk to Your MP” tour to hear constituents’ worries about pressing economic and other developmental challenges in the places he had chosen for his program.
Unfortunately, when they saw the MP, irate Kobeng residents who were upset with his performance began verbally harassing him while others attacked him from behind.
Due of the area’s poor road system, the irate people yelled at the MP and flung various objects at him.
Security personnel were required to defuse the situation and protect the MP from the residents after he attempted to address them.
The vice chairman of the Ashanti MP’s caucus, who corroborated the attack, said he was not wounded but declined to affirm that he was physically assaulted while speaking by phone to editor Louis Gyamerah of Ghanatodayonline.com.
The MP informed Louis Gyamerah that his supporters have every right to protest against him because COVID-19 and the Russian-Ukrainian war-related circumstances forced the abandonment of all development initiatives in the constituency.
Before his terrible assault, he told them that the road minister had already been informed of their worries and that the necessary measures would be done.
In the Ashanti Region, the bastion of the in power New Patriotic Party (NPP), a member of parliament has already come under assault twice for the lack of progress in their district.
