The Ekumfi Traditional Council has expressed its discontent over President Akufo-Addo’s recent remarks, where he implied deliberate neglect of Ekumfi residents for not supporting the NPP’s Parliamentary candidate, Kingsley Ato Cudjoe, in the 2020 elections.

The Council not only rebuked the President’s statements but also highlighted Ato Cudjoe’s significant loss in the NPP internal primaries, raising questions about the perceived marginalization of Ekumfi.

 The Traditional Authority has also demanded scientific data from the president regarding the former MP’s contributions to justify Akufo-Addo’s assertion.

Omanhene Odeefour Akyin VIII, speaking to the media, deems the President’s comments unfortunate, emphasizing that Ekumfi’s residents exercised democratic rights and should not face repercussions.

“The President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was seen in a viral video after some family of the late President Prof. Atta Mills visited him at the Jubilee House, categorically stating that he has denied the people of Ekumfi the much-needed development because they did not vote for Kingsley Ato Cudjoe, the New Patriotic Party candidate in the 2020 elections. No provision in the 1992 constitution mandates the President to decide who the people of Ekumfi or for that matter any other constituency must vote for. We cannot understand why the President has abandoned all ongoing developmental projects in the constituency, particularly the construction of roads.”

“The people of Ekumfi are struggling because they did not vote for his preferred candidate, Kingsley Ato Cudjoe. But I believe that accurate data can justify the President’s claim, and so we need the data. But we want the President to know that the same Ato Cudjoe who is preferred by the President and whose exit from Parliament has become the reason the people have neglected Ekumfi has once again lost miserably in the NPP internal parliamentary primaries. So why must the chief and people of Ekumfi suffer just because of one person who has been neglected by his party people,” Odeefour Akyin VIII, the Omanhene of Ekumfi Traditional Area, said?

Akufo-Addo’s statement, made during a meeting with the family of late President Prof. Atta Mills, claimed he denied development to Ekumfi for not voting for Ato Cudjoe.

Odeefour Akyin VIII questions the President’s authority to dictate voting choices, expressing bewilderment at the abandonment of ongoing developmental projects, especially road construction.

Highlighting Ekumfi’s struggles post-election, Odeefour Akyin VIII calls for accurate data to support the President’s claim.

He notes Ato Cudjoe’s loss in NPP internal parliamentary primaries, questioning why Ekumfi suffers due to one neglected by his party.

The Ekumfi Omanhene urges Akufo-Addo to fulfill promises made as a father for all, emphasizing the anticipation of stalled developmental projects’ completion.

Odeefour Akyin VIII calls for calm among Ekumfi’s people, assuring efforts to address the issues while emphasizing respect for President Akufo-Addo despite the statement’s unfortunate impact. signpost .co
