A group calling itself Concern Youth of Atiwa West is angry over the abysmal performance of their Member of Parliament (MP) for the area, Mr. Kwesi Amoako Atta, whose performance as an MP, they believe has not been impressive.
The group said since Amoako Atta became their MP in 2010 after winning the by-election, and subsequently, the 2012 and 2016 elections, his contribution to the youth in the area is appalling. They claim they have not benefited from his leadership.
The youth who expressed their anger in an interview said, NPP shielding Amoako Atta for the 2020 general elections is an indication that they want to lose the Atiwa West seat.
According to them, they were going to engage in a serious campaign to ensure that, people in the constituency vote ”skirt and blouse” against the MP.
The youth numbering over 1,000 have raised series of concerns about the attitude of the MP towards the youth in the area.
They noted that when President Nana Akufo-Addo, appointed him as the Roads and Highways Minister, they thought it was an opportunity for them to benefit, but little did they know it was going to be ”doom” for them.
They expressed the sufferings of the jobless youths in the constituency who deserve to enjoy the share of the national ”Cake”.
The group is alleging that Amoako Atta in his bid to go unopposed in the NPP parliamentary primaries manipulated in the disqualification of Dr Samuel Owusu Akyem, knowing well that he was going to lose the primaries should he contest him.
”We are therefore calling on the President, National Executives of the New Patriotic Party(NPP) for them to know that political parties imposing people on the constituents comes with consequences, therefore they should be ready to lose the seat in the upcoming general elections,” the group intimated.
