A former Ejisu-Juabeng Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Afrifa Yamoah-Ponkoh has described the President, Nana Akufo-Addo as someone who has no respect for Asantes and the Ashanti Kingdom.
According to him, the President only tolerates people of Asante descent in his government and political party because of the huge number of votes the party gets from the region.
“Nana Akufo-Addo has no respect for Asantes and the Ashanti Kingdom, he simply has no regard for Asantes, otherwise why will he disregard the people who vowed and really voted in their numbers to ensure that he becomes a President…?,” he said on Kuamsi-based Pure FM’s Morning Show, as monitored by Angelfmonlinegh.com
According to him, the seeming lack of development in the Ashanti Region is a great testament to his claim that the President only courts Asantes because of the votes from the region.
“Look at the numerous pot holes on roads in the Ashanti Region and the how bad some of the roads are…if indeed the President has some respect for the region he would have ensured that the region gets development…,” he added.
The firebrand NDC stalwart further claimed that the President’s recent tour to the region brought ‘bad omen’ to the region.
He claimed an accident that happened in Kumasi a day after the President left the region backs his claim.
