The Communication Director of New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Ashanti region Hon. Kwasi Kyei has today briefed the pressmen about a comment made by Opposition leader of National Democratic Congress (NDC) former president John Dramani Mahama during his tour in the region.
Mr. Akwasi Kyei said, Former president Mahama alleged that the medical superintendent of Ejura was transferred because of his testimony before the Ejura commission of Enquiry, he said, the claim by former President Mahama is blatantly false, the doctor was transferred earlier before the demonstration after working at Ejura for eight(8)years around the time, his father was deceased hence, pleaded with the Regional Director of Health to let him finish the funeral before his transfer takes effect.
It was during that period that the Ejura incident occurred, he was transferred to Abuakua Polyclinic in Atwima Nwbiagya municipality of Ashanti, anyone who knows that facility and its clients base won’t say its punishment and facility is within Greater Kumasi. Mr Akwasi Kyei spoke to Richard Mensah
The regional communication director further condemned the tribalistic comments made by Mr. John Dramani Mahama in the region claimed that NDC faithful are treated like lepers in the Ashanti region, which is not the only insult, but rather also derogatory of a person with disabilities especially lepers.
He concluded by saying,” DO and Die ” posture he had infested the NDC with playing out in the NDC in the Ashanti region so it came as a surprise that he found it worrying. He has this to say to Richard Mensah.
