“Etw3 Nim Nyansa, Kote Y3 Aboa & HwoaY3 Mobo” gained popularity in the country and now on the globe when the Member of Parliament (MP) for the area John Frimpong Osei, posed a question to then Minister for Energy, Boakye Agyarko, to ascertain when those communities would be hooked to the national electricity grid.
The MP had demanded to know from Mr. Boakye Agyarko when Kyiri Ahantan, Twewinso, Etw3 Nim Nyansa, Kote Y3 Aboa and Hwoa Y3 Mmbo among other communities, including Akyekyeresu, Tetteh Brofo, Asarekrom, Alhajikrom and Yaw Broni would get electricity.

The Minister’s response to the question also set the Floor into a frenzy of laughter when he introduced the Chief Nana Dr. Boakye Darkwa and Queen mother from the Abirem Traditional Area with oversight responsibility over the two towns to the MPs.
