Aspiring Ashanti Regional Chairman of the largest opposition party NDC who is also a former deputy sports minister and Ashanti Regional minister, Joseph Yamin, has chastised Ghana’s senior minister, Hon. Osafo Marfo for suggesting that corruption at the Ghana Football Association (GFA) increased immeasurably in 2010, when NDC was in power.

In rebutting Osafo Marfo’s proposition, on Okese FM’s “Ghana First” Morning Show today, Joseph Yamin said the issue of corruption must be viewed with national lense devoid of political colourization. He also argued, the senior minister has no moral right to attribute the level of corruption in Ghana football to the NDC, since it was under his watch between 2006 and 2008 as sports minister, that the popular Woyomegate scandal started even before the NDC came into power.

 

The Afigya Kwabre constituency chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party, Odeneho Kwaku Appiah has been elected to lead the Ashanti Regional NPP Constituency Chairmen's Association.

Other executive members elected for the association, which comprises all the 47 constituencies in the region are Patrick Adu-Gyamfi, Vice Chairman, Samuel Antwi-Boasiako, Secretary, Akwasi Nti Asamoah, Organiser and Addai Poku Aikins, Treasurer.

Others are Yaw Bonna Boadi, advisor and Kwabena Ameyaw, also an advisor.

One major focus of the new executive is to coordinate effectively in ensuring that there is absolute peace before, during and after the internal party contests in the various constituencies of the region which has been slated to take place from January to May 2018.

According to the new chairman, Odebeho Kwaku Appiah, it has become very necessary at this particular moment for the entire 47 constituencies to form a stronger unity, especially as there was high expectations from Ghanaians, for the Nana Addo-led NPP government.

Chairman Odeneho as he is affectionately called who has held several other positions in the party pointed out his leadership was going to ensure they work closely and effectively with all the party structures to make sure the impending election was carried out smoothly and in the spirit of tolerance.

He assured that they were going to be transparent in their dealings while making sure they remain relevant whilst in office.

He said they intend to ensure that they form closer links with people on daily basis by setting up adequate and proper channels for complaints and resolution of difference at the grassroot levels.
