Ashanti regional General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Sam Pyne has expressed optimism that the regional minister designate Simon Osei -Mensah will perform creditably to improve the region.
Mr Pyne indicated that the former Member of Parliament (MP) for Bosomtwe needs support and prayers from party members especially those in the region to give the party’s stronghold a facelift.
Eulogising him on Abusua FM’s Abusua Nkommo hosted by Kwame Adinkra, he described Mr Osei-Mensah as a loyal and hardworking person who will not fail the region and the party as a whole.
He called on party members to desist from pulling down the minister designate, and further doubted if the former legislator will not perform.
The regional General secretary of the party entreated the nominee to respect traditional rulers and liaise with them to develop the region.
He further urged him to solve squabbles that will crop up among party leadership and footsoldiers.
‘He is a loyal person I thought he should have been appointed to serve in other areas before this one. His human relations with people is always on point, he works with passion and always yearn to see the progress of the party. We are happy about his appointment, we thank God he has been nominated, we will be supporting him with prayers. I doubt if he will not perform, he just has to liaise with party leadership, members, traditional authorities and the region will be one of the best. He can do it, he just needs our prayers, people should not pull him down but rather support him. Majority of people are happy about his nominations,’ he said.
He said he will gladly accept any position the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will give him.
