Go and build the school yourself if it is important to you- Akufo-Addo shows Aflao Chief where power lies

Go and build the school yourself if it is important to you- Akufo-Addo shows Aflao Chief where power lies

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has questioned the authority of the Chief of Aflao Traditional Area in the Volta Region, Torgbui Fiti Amenya V to issue an ultimatum to the Minister of Education to come and complete the E-block project which was started under the erstwhile Mahama administration.

The president‘s response during an interview on Accra based Peace FM monitored by myactiveonline.com is coming on the back of the frustration poured out by Chief of Aflao lamenting about the fact that an E-block Community Day School project started by the Mahama Administration in his community had been abandoned since 2016.

He [Torgbui Fiti Amenya V] had also complained about how the youth in his community sometimes do not have the zeal to continue their education but rather work on the Ghana-Togo border to fend for themselves due to the lack of educational facilities in the area.

The chief wondered if it had gotten to the extent of citizens now having to beg duty bearers for basic human rights such as education.

But President Akufo-Addo did not take kindly to the ultimatum given to his Education Minister by the Chief and has told the chief to complete the project if it was so important to him.

“Is he [Aflao Chief] the one to give the Minister ultimatum? Then he should go ahead and complete the project.”

Meanwhile, the Member of Parliament for Ketu North Hon Abla Dzifa Gomashie has not enthused with the president’s comments citing that it is quite unfortunate for it to be coming from the president asking if now Ghanaians do not have the right to complain about issues bothering them.
