CRCC Besieged By NDC Youth Supporters
From Ishaque Agyei, Cape Coast
Concerned Youth Supporters (CYS), a Cape Coast based group, claiming affiliation to the National Democratic Congress (NDC), on Monday morning, besieged the Central Regional Coordinating Council (CRCC) protesting against the removal of the former Regional Minister, Mrs. Ama Benyiwa-Doe.
The group claimed that the removal of Mrs. Benyiwa-Doe came as a surprise, considering the peace and unity she has brought among the party and non-party members, as well as the traditional rulers in the region.
The group members, numbering about 100 and clad in NDC paraphernalia, marched through the principal streets of Cape Coast, amidst brass band music, to the CRCC to show their support for the outgoing regional minister.
The group, who were making noise at the outgoing minister’s residence, were later informed by her Public Relations Officer, Ike Afenyi Donkor that Mrs. Benyiwa-Doe had travelled and promised to deliver their message to her when she returns. The leader of the group, Alhaji Abdul Aziz, in an interview with The Chronicle said the contributions of Mrs. Benyiwa-Doe to the region and the party is enormous and it is very clear for all to testify.
He said the former regional minister had proved beyond all reasonable doubt that she could lead the region effectively and efficiently.
He, therefore, appealed to the president to reconsider Mrs. Ama Benyiwa-Doe for another appointment elsewhere in his government, in order not to waste her genuine ideas and capabilities that would help develop the region and the country as whole.
On whether the group would support the newly appointed regional minister, Alhaji Aziz, who could not give a definite answer, admitted that the group cannot challenge the president in his appointments, but only advised the new regional minister to continue the hard work of his predecessor and also be a listening leader.
