PRESS RLEASE BY CENTRAL REGION YOUTH FOR UNITY,STABILITY AND DEVELOPMENT
Sack Ama Beyiwa Doe Or Lose Central Region In 2012
We members of the Central Region Youth for Unity Stability and Development are once again calling on President Mills to remove Ama Benyiwa Doe as central regional minister or face serious consequences in the 2012 General Elections.
We wish to inform President Mills that we feel insulted and angry that Madam Ama Benyiwa Doe is making fools of us loyal party members and Ghanaians for that matter in the central region, by telling us that the Cape Coast Stadium, which his Excellency President Mills promised us that it would be ready before 2012 for us to showcase before our supporters and get more votes is not necessary and not a priority.
We once again appeal to the President to find out what Ama Benyiwa Doe has done with the 500 million Ghana cedis that was made available for the stadium project. We wish to remind the president that majority of our youths and grassroot supporters are sitting on the beaches doing nothing, with majority of us wondering were the next meal is going to come from. This stadium project is important to us. It has the potential to create 16,000 jobs in cape coast alone, as well as surrounding towns. Why will a leading member of the party and regional minister, if she means well, dismiss such a project which creates jobs, if she has not embezzled the money? We see this as a sabotage of your efforts and we will not tolerate it!
We have previously raised issues and complained several times about the conduct of Madam Ama Benyiwa Doe and some individuals at the Central regional administration as well as major questions regarding the disappearance of monies for the stadium project. We said it before and we are saying it again, Madam Ama Benyiwa Doe is the number one enemy of progress and a major obstacle to our chances winning the region massively. She must be sacked for peace and unity to prevail.
We wish to serve notice to President Mills that it would be difficult for us to campaign or support him to win the region massively if he continues to keep her in office.The president can dismiss our views if he likes. The region and the NDC has competent individuals who can create jobs and initiate and complete government projects, why are we still keeping somebody who is only interested in stealing money ,stealing contracts and building houses for herself ? .Why should we lose central region our stronghold because of her?
We are really unhappy and not amused
