The former New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nasara Coordinator for Atwima Mponua Constituency, Mr. Salihu Yakubu has said President Nana Addo Danqwah Akuffo-Addo must consider the grassroots people on the appointment of MMDCEs.
According to him, most of the MMDCEs, Ministers, and CEOs of public institutions are so ungenerous to even party footsoldiers who worked tirelessly prior to the 2016 and 2020 elections to support the party to win power.
In an interview with Pressmen at Nyinahin, Mr. Salahu Yakubu made it clear that, without grassroots people, the party cannot break the 8.
According to him, grassroots people did the dirty work, “house to house campaign, they do the grounds work. The Ministers, CEO, and MMDCEs none of them went to the villages to the campaign, they were never slapped before like some of us were. But the party always minding us”.
He, therefore, plead with the President to consider the grassroots especially those who are in the race.
And also adviced the NPP fraternity across the nation especially Atwima Mponua Constituency to respect the decision of the President Nana Addo Danqwah Akuffo-Addo.
According to Mr. Yakubu, rather than protest the nominated candidates for Chief Executive position, party members should offer the candidates their full support.
