There is escalating tension in Fanteakwa North District in Eastern Region as the youth in the area are seething with anger as they sit on tenterhooks for the announcement of a District Chief Executive for the Area.

The youth who have held several press conferences and sent petitions against the renomination of the District Chief Executive, Charles Oware Tweneboah say, they remain resolute and will resist any attempt to impose the DCE on the District.

According to the angry youth, some Chiefs in Begoro have intensified their lobbying for the DCE to be retained for their selfish gains.

The youth from far and near are therefore mobilizing as they await the official announcement of President Akufo-Addo’s nominees for Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executive positions on Sunday, September 20, 2021.

A statement issued by the youth group calling itself Begoro Youth Development Association on Saturday, September 19, 2021, few hours to the announcement reminded President Akufo-Addo not to renominate the DCE accusing him of incompetence.

“Begoro Youth Development Association would like to remind His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo on a petition to his noble Office dated 19th May 2021 against renomination of Hon Charles Oware Tweneboah from the Youth in Begoro and Fanteakwa North at Large” the statement issued Signed by the Director of Operations Staph Ahmed said.

“We are by this communique reiterating once again that the Youth in Begoro and Fanteakwa North cannot and will not work with Hon Charles Oware Tweneboah for his abysmal performance for the past Four years Nine Months in office as District Chief Executive for Fanteakwa North”.

The statement continued “We are assuring the President that, the youth will work with any other person apart from Hon Charles Oware Tweneboah but will resist his appointment if he is renominated again as DCE for Fanteakwa North”.

“The Youth are aggressively waiting patiently to hearing from your Local Government Minister for the release of the list of MMDCEs on Sunday 19th September 2021 at 1:00 pm as communicated by the ministry of information. The Youth leadership Continues to calm nerves within the Youth in the District,” the statement concluded.

Fanteakwa North, Suhum, Upper West Akyem, Asuogyaman, Afram Plains North, Nsawam Adoagyiri, Birim North, Atewa West are among the Metropolitan and Districts in the Eastern region where violence is likely to erupt if the incumbent MDCEs are renominated.
