Health Minister teases Ajumako NDC Youth over stone-pelting incidence

An embittered Minister of Health, Hon. Kwaku Agyemang Manu has taken a swipe at some irate NDC youth of Ajumako after they hurled stones at him while he was commissioning some 10 new polyclinics in the area.

The minister has asked the angry youth to wait till the National Democratic Congress won power before the projects were commissioned.

His comments come after a group of NDC supporters stormed the venue to stop the commissioning because they claimed the projects were started by former president John Mahama.

It took the intervention of the Member of Parliament of area Cassiel Ato Forson and police personnel to restore calm for the ceremony to continue.

The Health Minister then took his turn to white-wash the group for their misconduct.

He could not hide his displeasure and asked them to wait for the NDC to recapture power before the projects are inaugurated.

Member of Parliament of the area, Cassiel Ato Forson followed suit and called on the townsfolk to rally behind the project since it will benefit about 40 communities.

He added that the projects belong to Ghana irrespective of who started it.

Chief of the area assured that all persons culpable will be duly identified and punished for disgracing the community.
