President Has Shown True Love To Ashanti Region- Aide to Chairman Wontumi

The Special Aide and Programmes Manager to the Ashanti Regional Chairman, Andy Owusu, has commended the President, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo Addo, for the massive recognition given to Ashanti Region in the appointment of ministers and officials in his administration.

Andy Owusu, who is credited with the formulation of campaign strategies which resulted in the massive votes secured by the NPP in the region, told in an interview that he is filled with joy that the President has truly recognized the role Ashanti Region played as a stronghold of the party by adequately giving the region the lion share in terms of the appointments of persons to serve in his government.

The Ashanti Region has had the biggest number of appointees, securing 9 out of the 39 ministers selected excluding that of deputy ministers.

But what has however gladdened the hearts of Chairman Wontumi's Special Aide, are the latest appointments which saw the region once again securing four major places namely including that of the CEO for Youth Employment Agency (YEA) and the Medium and Small Scale Loan Centre (MASLOC) which respectively went to Justin Koduah and Stephen Amoah, aka Stika.

Besides these, the President has also appointed Mr. John Kumah, a legal practitioner from Ejisu as the Chief Executive Officer of Youth Enterprise Services (YES) whilst the former CEO of the  Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) Dr. Nsiah Asare also heads to the Ghana Health Service(GHS) as the Director General.

This is in spite of the fact that the region had already benefitted from other key positions such as Tema Oil Refinery (TOR) which has Mr. Osei Isaac as the CEO whilst Hon. Osei Prempeh, former MP for Nsuta Kwamang, also heading to Ghana Oil Company as the Managing Director.

"President Nana Akufo Addo has indeed shown love to the region even more than his own people in the Eastern Region. We couldn't have asked for more," He noted

It is for this reason that Andy Owusu is calling on residents and supporters in the region to rise up and challenge any group that attempts to engage in propaganda that the President has refused to give the region its due share.
