A youth group in the Akatsi North District of the Volta Region under the leadership of Mr. Dorkenoo Wonder has urged members of the Akatsi North District Assembly to reject Simon Peter Ofosu as the District Chief Executive for the area.
According to the youth group, aside the nominee leading various forms of machinations against the two earlier nominees of the President to be rejected by the assembly members, he and his team are on record to have insulted the Regional Minister Dr Archibald Yao Letsa and President Akufo-Addo for not choosing him instead.
“Was he [Mr. Simon Peter Ofosu] not the one inciting his boys to be all over the place insulting Hon Letsa of misleading the President to choose Patu and Ayrah over him? Was he not the one telling his boys to leave the NPP party because he was not nominated? Today, he has come to be DCE at where?,” the group asked.
The Group further revealed that a recent press conference by one Mac-Solo Ziddah Dziwornu and supported by some allies of Mr. Ofosu, made it evidently clear that he was the one causing all the troubles of rejection of nominees for the same position.
The Group further alleged that from the press conference which was aired on Joy News, it was clear that Mr. Ofosu sponsored the organization of the press conference.
“He also sponsored some young guys to be insulting and attacking Chiefs, party elders and any other party member who do not support his agenda becoming a DCE,” the group stated.
The leadership of the group believes that “this type of person cannot lead the district as his conduct does not depict unity and someone who can take charge of the district in a positive light.”
The Group has also alleged that Mr. Ofosu should have been screened for fitness in all fronts for the position that he has been nominated to be confirmed to occupy and that, “the gentleman has many issues to solve on himself before even tendering himself for a role of DCE. We can only appeal to our assembly members to decide wisely.”
Mr. Simon Peter Ofosu is President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s third nominee for the Akatsi north DCE position.
Mr Paul Agbesi Ayrah and Mr. Prosper Patu were earlier rejected by Members of the Akatsi North District Assembly.
