The youth of Akyem Abuakwa Traditional area are in the Eastern Region, are calling on their Traditional Council to ban the entire National Democratic Congress (NDC) party executives in the region, from entering the Ofori Panin Fie [Palace] for their perceived continued disrespect of the Okyehene and Okyeman.
According to the youth, the decision by the Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panyin II to ban just the NDC Regional Chairman and the Youth Organizer, Tawiah Boateng and Appau Haruna, for insulting the Okyehene, has not deterred other executives of the party from disrespecting him.
The Eastern Regional branch of the NDC, has accused the Akyem Abuakwahene of discrimination after the ban.
But that has angered the youth who deem it offensive to the Okyenhene. Speaking to Citi News, Spokesperson for the youth, Kofi Gyimah Amoako, described the continuous attacks by the NDC on the Okyehene as distasteful, thus their request to have the entire eastern regional executives banned.
He also alleged that the ban of the two NDC executives was actually met with further insults from other executives of the party. Kofi Gyimah Amoako said, “We don’t take it lightly.
We do not appreciate the fact that you will insult our King and then come and sit with him as if nothing has happened… We are very angry at this and we are pleading with the traditional authorities to ban the entire the NDC executives in the Eastern Region from coming to the Palace.”
