Yesterday was all laughter in Parliament when Member of Parliament for Abriem Constitution, Mr John Osei Frimpong asked the Minister for Energy, whether the ministry has plans to provide off-grid electricity to communities in the Aberim constituency in the Eastern Region such as Kyiri Ahanta, Twenwinso, Etwe Nim Nyansa, Kote Ye Aboa, Hwoa Ye Mmobo, Akyekyeresu, Tetteh Brofo, Asarekrom, Alhajikrom and Yaw Broni.
It might surprise you that all these sexually suggestive names of communities exist in this country but indeed so are their names.
The Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko responded that the Ministry will soon conduct a survey to ascertain the best way to get the communities connected to the national grid, but not without a humorous remark about the name of the town.
“Mr Speaker, I now understand why the Member from Abirem belongs to a happy lot coming from a constituency with such names, you can’t only be happy. The House is agog this morning and I was expecting a full house, but the tedium of the house that we get some comic relief now and then… I suspect that providing them with electricity may interfere with the nocturnal activities as suggested by their names” he said.
While “kote ye aboa” literally means the penis is wile, “etwe nim nyansa” literally means the vagina is wise, they are expected to be connected to the National Power Grid by December, the Energy minister assured.
