You’ll Get Political Answers If You Speak For NDC – Aflao Chief Told



A onetime Parliamentary Candidate hopeful of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kofi Baffour has told traditional leaders, including the paramount chief of Aflao not to be led astray by the opposition NDC and become mouthpiece for them.

According to him although chiefs are free to air their concerns, they must not wait and only speak up after being visited by political opponents else they’ll be seen as engaging in politics.

He said when that happens they’ll receive political clap backs from the ruling government.

“The comments were political and if you make a political comment you should expect a political answer,” he told on Monday October 25.

“The chiefs are being pushed by the NDC Minority to be speaking the way they are doing. We are not saying they cannot speak on national issues, but they should not be pushed by politicians to do so otherwise you will receive the kind of response they got,” he added.

The Aflao chief had given the government a four month ultimatum to open the e-block community day senior high school which has stalled since 2016.

Torgbui Adzonugaga Amenya Fiti speaking with the Minority side of the Education Committee who toured the uncompleted school buildings in the Ketu South constituency says, government’s approach to education is appalling.

After senior high school education, the next degree that my people have to do is to go to border and go and do kayayo, no school.

“The only school that we have is the RC Senior High School that belongs to the Catholic Mission Minor Seminary. So this thick population have no place to go and people sit down in that big hall called parliament and not thinking about Aflao, a place after the Tema Harbour , the next revenue generation  is from the Aflao border.

“I had to push the former President Mahama for the structure to be constructed over there. I had to be running from here to Accra begging.

“Should we beg for education?”

Reacting to it on Peace FM’s morning show, President Akufo-Addo questioned why the chief would give government an ultimatum.

According to him most of the E-block projects started by the Mahama administration have been completed by his government while others are at various stages of completion.

“Many of the E-blocks are being worked on across the country.

“Is he [Aflao Chief] the one to give the minister ultimatum then he should go ahead and complete the project,” the President said.
