Nana Yaw Sai Of Jaman South (Sampa Constituency NPP) Writes
BONO REGIONAL MINISTER MAD. EVELYN KUMI RICHARDSON MUST BE REBUKED AND CONDEMNED
Exactly One week from today, we will be going to the polls to elect our New President which will Insha Allah be President Akufo-Addo and a majority of NPP parliamentary candidates to represent us in the next parliament.
Prior to the elections, I must say the National Party throughout to the regional party down to the constituency and polling station party of which I belong nationwide has done a tremendous work through the country of which my constituency is no exception and that will reflect in the results of Hon Siaka Stevens (MP) and President Akufo Addo come December 7th 2020.
Generally, as a foot soldier and a polling station member who has campaigned unstopped for over 4 months now, I am satisfied with the preparations of our party and look forward for a resounding victory.
On record, throughout our entire struggling and campaigning in the constituency, we have never seen the regional minister there until today.
High Profiled persons such as His Excellency the Vice President Visited our constituency, Her wife on a separate day also visited our constituency, the Bono regional party leadership led by the chairman has also visited our constituency and my community not once but twice for a boot on grounds Campaign and also, several members of parliament and high ranked National Party officials have also paid us separate visits to help canvas for votes and share the achievements of the President.
Let me reiterate that, never has the Regional Minister stepped foot in my constituency.
Initially I thought probably because my MP was the Deputy Regional minister there were some few in house grudges so I ignored the Reg Minister who is the President’s rep in the region until after several weeks and conversations with my friends in other constituencies in the region, they also registered the same displeasure and concerns.
My checks later on revealed that, the regional minister had not stepped foot in any constituency in the Region for the entire campaign period until today.
Interestingly when he came to my constituency he donated only 200 T shirts and samples of NPP branded ballot papers to us for voter education and took several pictures.
I don’t have any problem with the regional minister not Campaigning in any of the Constituencies in the Bono region because its all about choices and she has chosen not to campaign but my great displeasure is the fact that, in this last minute she will go round to only a few places and take pictures and later take all the credits from we the foot soldiers who have done all the hard work in the constituency to make it look as if she has campaigned but in reality she hasn’t done anything.
On this note, I am calling on the party leadership to warn the regional minister because we the foot soldiers are not happy with the behavior of the Regional minister because she is not setting a good example for we the the underdogs of the party
