NPP communicator unhappy with Awal Mohammed’s appointment

A communicator of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Ashanti region has questioned the motivation for the appointment of Mr. Awal Mohammed as the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the National Youth Employment Agency (NYEA).

Prince Milonu observed that his appointment has in many ways betrayed the long held principle of the party for rewarding long service, loyalty and hard work among its members

“This appointment makes nonsense of the sacrifices and dedication of other equally competent young persons who have served the party well over the years. How does the party want the likes of Raphael Sarfo Patrick, Essel Mills, Yaw Opoku-Mensah, Felix Osafo Marfo, Felix Ibrahim and other young persons in the party to feel? Especially, when there is absolutely no indication that they will be sorted out any time soon.

“This appointment in my view will set a very bad precedent that will have dire consequences for the unity especially among the youth of the party going forward in the future.”

“Perhaps, this is a subtle way of telling us that, there are no competent young person among our ranks with regards to long service who can serve in that capacity, more so, when the criteria for his appointment hasn’t been explained to us”, he noted.

He expressed his disappointment in the leadership of the party for failing to show appreciation to them for the sacrifices they have made for the party indicating that they have suddenly become objects of mockery among their peers in opposition.

“I am, honestly, sadden by the lack of appreciation shown to us by the party and now many of us are now laughing stock in the eye of our colleagues in the other party”, he emphasized.
