Member of Parliament MP for Sagnarigu constituency, Alhaji A. B. A. Fuseini has disclosed that the NPP party has a history of disrespecting the chiefs and people of the Volta region.
The minority ranking member on communications made these remarks when he was responding to the statement by president Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo yesterday on Peace FM’s kokroko program by hosted Kwame Sefa Kayi.
According to the MP, the NPP, which evolved from United Party (UP) in the 70s does not have a modicum of respect for the traditional authorities.
“The Busia-Danquah tradition is noted for insulting chiefs and traditional authorities. They did the same thing in 1979. Which is being repeated by Nana Addo”, the MP told radio Tamale’s Tudu Yeligbahira host.
Victor Owusu of United Party (UP) is said to have described the Ewes as inward-looking people in 2979.
President Nana Akufo-Addo is also reported to have rebuked the Ewes on their voting trend in Hohoe, where he declared that the people of Volta Region have been voting in one way for a very long time.
President Nana Akufo-Addo asked the Paramount Chief of the Aflao Traditional Area to “complete” the abandoned E-block community day senior high school in the area himself if he is frustrated about the delay.
On Wednesday, October 20, Torgbui Adzonu-Gaga Amenya Fiti V gave government a four-month ultimatum to finish the building for use.
The school, built during the Mahama administration is almost 90 per cent complete. It has some 26 classrooms and five departments, including a science block but has stalled since 2016.
