Aflao Chief can give President Akufo-Addo an ultimatum because of this: NDC’s General Mosquito explains

General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has said the paramount chief of the Aflao traditional area, Torgbui Amenya Fiti, has every right to give President Akufo-Addo a dead line to complete a project.

This according to him is because the Paramount Chief is a Ghanaian who gave President the mandate to lead the country hence he (Akufo-Addo) is a servant to the people which Torgbui Amenya Fiti is not an exception.

Speaking on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ with host, Kwame Nkrumah Tik3se3, the indefatigable General Secretary of the NDC said that as president of Ghana, H.E Akufo-Addo is a servant to all regardless of party or religious affiliations and should serve with humility.

“The president is a servant to all because it is through the mandate of the people that  gave Akufo-Addo the power to rule”.

Also, he admonished the president to be circumspect in his choice of words since he is a role model to others and as such he should know how to answer questions even when they are unpleasant.

Recall that the paramount chief of the Aflao traditional area, Torgbui Amenya Fiti some days ago handed the government a four-month ultimatum to operationalize the E-block high school facility in the area.

The GH¢9 million project, started under the erstwhile National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration, has 26 classrooms, five departments, and a science block.

Torgbui Amenya Fiti, who was speaking during a courtesy call by members of the Minority on the Education Committee, said the government’s approach to education was appalling.

“The next place for revenue generation after the Tema Harbour is the Aflao border. So I had to push former President, John Mahama to put up that structure. I had to be running from here to Accra, begging. Should we be begging for education? If we have to beg for education before people can go to school, then I don’t know what we call democracy at all. Look at the structure, it’s almost 90 percent complete. The thieves are having a field day, going in there to have everything removed at will.”

“The NPP government now has free SHS education, but my people are not benefitting because there is no school here. So I am giving the Education Minister up till February [2022] for the school to be completed,” the chief added.

However, president Akufo-Addo while addressing the Aflao chief’s concern about the E-block project in an interview on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo show monitored by stated that if the chief is frustrated about delay in the completion of the project then he should go and complete it himself.
