A group calling itself the Asante Akyem Youth Movement has expressed its disappointment with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s refusal to appoint a Minister from the constituency.
The group in a statement argued that forming the government with persons from the constuency will inure to the benefit of constituents.
“Over the past few weeks, the President brought a list of Ministers who have succesfully been vetted and approved by Parliament.
“We observed keenly as no member of the Asante Akyem constituency was part of it. As a result of this, we the Asante Akyem Youth Union Movement (AYUM) which constitutes members from the three constituencies in the Asante Akyem Municipalities want to inform His Excellency, the President of Ghana that we exist too. We wish to plead with the President to consider our MPs and the vibrant grassroots members during his second term of administration.”
The group listed some persons they believe could be given either a Deputy Minister or Chief Executive Officer (CEO) position.
