“Besides, Mr. Williams Darko has worked assiduously to ensure equitable distribution of resources available to the Assembly. For instance, the distribution of resources to persons with disabilities (PWDs).
He has done nothing wrong and has served the people well since he assumed office. His replacement will bring a retrogression in our area.
The President must give him another four years and if he is not able to perform then we change him but now” Mponua youth said,” he explained.
According to the youth, the DCE has completed most of the abandoned projects under the National Democratic Congress (NDC) since he took the office.

Aside from that, he also lobbied for several CHIP compounds which have been built to help the people to get access to quality healthcare to the people of Atwima Nwabiagya South to seek health care at Anweafutu Health centre.
Through him and his workaholic MP, though Atwima Mponua was not part of 88 district hospital, now it has been included.
Hon. Williams Darko’s outfit helped the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in winning the Parliamentary seat.
The youth disclosed the DCE did not get things easier in his first term of office as according to them, the DCE used his time and his own resources at Court when Ibrahim Mahama the brother of former President John Dramani Mahama took Nyinahin bauxite to the Supreme court.
But by God’s grace and through Hon. Williams Darko (DCE) Hon. Simon Osei Mensah (Regional Minister) and Member of Parliament Isaac Kwame Asiamah, won the case now the bauxite creating more jobs for the youth in Atwima Mponua.
The Atwima Mponua NPP Constituency Executives, including Chairman, Mr. Isaac Kofi Marfo has expressed satisfaction with the performance of the DCE in the past four years.
The majority of the Past Constituency Executives and current Executives are backing him to be reappointment.
According to the youth group, Williams Darko never undermines the work of the NPP and his Member of Parliament, Hon. Isaac Bohyeba Asiamah and they will campaign assiduously for Isaac Asiamah if the President maintains Williams Darko as the DCE.
The major problem of Atwima Mponua district is deplorable roads, now through Hon. Isaac Asiamah (MP) and Hon. Williams Darko (DCE) construction of 116 KM roads is ongoing in the district.
