Angry Anlo residents protest removal of Humado

Some residents in the Anlo Constituency of the Volta Region are agitated over the removal of their MP Clement Kofi Humado from office.

The residents say they are surprised by the decision of the president to remove their MP from office.

Not even the appointment of Fifi Kwetey as Agriculture Minister consoles them. Fifi Kwetey is also from the same region.

The residents described the president's decision to replace Mr Humado as shameful.

This comes as a surprise to us all and we still don't believe, they lamented.

"The minister, who happens to be the only minister from this area serving in the government being removed? This has come as a shock to us.

"We strongly oppose to this. He must be reinstated. Simple and short," one of the angry residents told Joy News' Volta Region correspondent Ivy Setordzie.

"I am in total shock. I respect the president's rights to hire and fire all right. But certain things when you listen to the way he is playing the game, you wonder if he is on top of his game.

"We the people of Anlo vote all the time and we expect to be respected, not removing people that come from this area.

"The president was here and made many promises which he didn't fulfil. He just terminated the appointed of somebody we all trust.”
