Monitoring and Evaluation minister, Dr. Anthony Akoto Osei is said to have been whisked away in near attack by some aggrieved members in his Tafo/Pankrono constituency in the Ashanti.
Dr. Akoto was at a party meeting at Pankrono Sunday evening when the youth stormed the venue to question him over promises made to secure them jobs.
The Irate Youth in their quest to register their displeasure stormed the whole place and ended up destroying the properties at the said meeting.
The Youth who was believed to belong to the Kumasi based Delta Force postulated the minister promised them jobs which saw them to have massively campaign for the party and that he has since turned his back for them in the grassroots ever since they won election.
Whilst other members of the Delta Force also said the MP has not been responding to their calls. He only came to the constituency once in 2 years as the Evaluation minister but didn’t even ask of them and later got back to Accra.
The Youth believed all these attitude of the MP accelerated their anger to storm the meeting and subsequently demolished the available resources
“We learned he will be coming for a meeting today. So I organized the boys and went to the venue. We had wanted to ask him the numerous promises he made to us when the party was in opposition but those around him didn’t allow that. They took him to his car. We also push the chairs and other things to the ground and that brought chaos at the whole place”.
Hack Musah, a constituency Youth Organizer for polling executives and a member of the Delta Force said in an interview.
Ghanaweb is yet to speak to the member of parliament to hear his side of the story.
