NDC Ashanti youth disown Mahama; call for a new leader for 2024

A group in the Ashanti Region calling themselves NDC Ashanti Youth, is calling for a new formidable leader to serve as a flagbearer to lead the party in the upcoming 2024 general elections.

According to them in their press statement, the two times defeated flagbearer of the party, John Mahama is no longer fit to lead the party in 2024 as he neglected them when he had power.

The group is accusing Mr. Mahama of neglecting the Ashanti Region when in power.

“How come only Tamale metropolis had three cabinet ministers yet the biggest region in the country, Ashanti was neglected?


“In fact, at the start of the administration, there was only one minister from Ashanti Region – the Minister for Environment Science and Technology, Professor Oteng Agyei – who was sacked bitterly and mysteriously just some few months into the administration,” a statement from the group and signed by the convenor Kweku Asare Mensah said.

“We’re fed up”

It added: “John Mahama is scheduled to hit the region on 13 September with his thank you tour, but the youth of the party is sending a signal that they are fed up with him.

“How come John Mahama appointed five cabinet ministers from Central Region in addition to having the vice-president from the same region. How come there were also five cabinet ministers from Eastern Region in addition to the chief of staff?”

“John Mahama, who could neglect the Ashanti Region this much now pretends to be the lover boy just to deceive us and neglect the region again. Our message to him is simple. He shouldn’t count on us because he neglected us when he had the power. NDC needs new leadership direction, a leader who is in to build a more formidable party, not one who is only in for his personal good,” it added.
