A youth group calling itself the Coalition of Aggrieved Foot Soldiers of the New Patriotic Party in the Yapei Kusawgu Constituency of the Savannah Region are crying over what they say is neglect from President Akufo-Addo.
According to the group, while NPP youth in other constituencies are being appointed to various positions, none of their members are being considered by the government.
Our constituency and, by extension, the District has equally qualified personalities to be appointed as CEOs, board members and other positions to drive home development but ask if we are even considered for any appointment by the President,” the leader of the Coalition, Tanko Malik said at a press conference at Yapei on Monday, September 13, 2021, while asking, “Are we not Ghanaians like those in other constituencies?.”
Tanko Malik further bemoaned, “Since 2017, no youth from the Constituency has been employed in any entity, neither has any of our leaders had any appointment yet we call ourselves party foot soldiers. What is our crime?.”
The Coalition of Aggrieved Foot Soldiers in a cry to the government has threatened to advise its members in the next general elections if things do not change.
The group for starters, wants a son of Yapei Kusawgu Constituency to receive a government appointment just as has happened in other constituencies in the Savannah Region.
