Abronye invokes ‘Antoa Nyama’ on Regional Minister

Brong Ahafo Regional Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Kwame Baffoe, popularly known as ‘Abronye DC’, has invoked curses on the Brong Ahafo Regional Minister, Kwaku Asomah Cheremeh.

The youth activist accused him extorting money from chainsaw operators and traders at the Dormaa Wood Village in the area.

Abronye DCE noted that the Regional Minister takes GH¢ 7,000.00 per truck from the operators anytime their trucks are seized.

His actions, Kwame Baffoe stressed has brought a lot of hardship among members of the wood village association.

“I don’t hate lawyer Asomah-Cheremeh but his actions as a party chairman and a regional minister has brought the region into disrepute. He illegally seize trucks from chainsaw operators and charge them GHC 7, 000 before he will allow any truck of lumber to leave.

“He uses his position to intimidate these poor operators and it’s very bad as a minister” he indicated on Accra based Okay FM.

Abronye DCE also alleged that the minister has managed to forged documents of DKM customers for his parochial interest.

Abronye DCE further noted that lawyer Asomah-Cheremeh, showed gross disrespect to party members by disqualifying competent members who wish to become DCEs and extort monies from incompetent people with the promise to make them DCEs.

The situation, he noted has angered a lot of the members who are planning to stage a massive demonstration against him.

Kwame Baffoe said he has refused to report to the party because the NPP is not an audited firm to investigate a public officer.

He has therefore made a passionate appeal to President Akufo-Addo to as a matter of urgency relieve him from his post if he is committed to fighting corruption.

The Brong Ahafo Regional Youth Organizer says he has concrete evidence to prove his allegations against the minister.

“Some people whose monies were extorted by the minister are planning to stage a demo against the minister if he is not sacked, some of them I learnt have even invoked curses on him and so it is appropriate that he steps aside so that investigation is conducted on him. He doesn’t deserve to be at his post.

“Nana Addo should sack him if indeed he hates corruption. I have evidence and documents to prove what I’m saying” he noted.

To prove his seriousness, Abronye DC has invoked the dreaded ‘Antoa Nyama’ deity on Mr. Asomah Cheremeh should he deny the allegation.

“Lawyer Asomah Cheremeh is guilty and should not dare not deny because I have my evidence, if he tries to deny, may antoa and thunder strike him and his children” he warned.
