Consider Kwahus for positions – Kwahu Chiefs beg Akufo-Addo

NanaAkufo-Addo with some Kwahu Chiefs

Nana Somuah Mireku Nyampong III, the Chief of Kwahu Asakraka, has asked the President-elect, Nana Akufo-Addo, to consider appointing citizens of Kwahu in his government.

The Chief made the appeal when the president-elect visited the area as part of his thank you tour of the Eastern Region.

Nana Somuah Mireku Nyampong III, who spoke on behalf of the Kwahu Traditional Council, said their appeal is necessary because they have stood by the NPP over the years.

“Kwahuman has never disappointed, rejected or neglected the NPP party ever, we have been loyal to the NPP party over the years and we will continue to stay loyal. So Nana Addo, if we have voted you into office please turn to us and consider the people of Kwahu.”

“…We have a lot of young intelligent, energetic graduates and academicians who come from Kwahu in this country. Mr President-elect please consider our children in your ministerial and presidential appointments, when the time comes because we the Kwahus have lacked citizens in government positions even though we have remained loyal to the NPP for so many years. Award Okwahuman by making some of our children presidential staffers and we will forever be grateful,” he added.
