The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Deputy Communications Director for the Bono Region, Eric Adjei, has expressed his worries over Energy Minister Matthew Opoku Prempeh, also known as Napo, for what he believes to be his apparent disregard for the flood victims.
In a post on his Facebook page, Eric Adjei said that Napo, as the Energy Minister, had abandoned the Volta Region’s citizens in the wake of the regrettable Volta River Authority (VRA) spill.
Over 36,000 people have been displaced as a result of this catastrophe, yet Napo has not released an official statement or voiced his concerns.
Mr. Adjei claimed that Napo’s lack of regard for the people of the Volta Region implying a sense of tribalism may be the cause of the seeming neglect.
As some residents of the Volta Region are currently dealing with the fallout from the VRA leak, the Energy Minister is off elsewhere, seemingly indifferent to the difficulties his fellow Voltanos are facing.
Adjei expressed disapproval of Napo’s leadership, claiming that since assuming office, he has not demonstrated exemplary leadership abilities.
Additionally, he alluded to Napo’s seeming need for praise, implying that he would have been quick to take credit if the VRA had been recognized for its deeds.
In closing, Adjei stated that he felt Napo was indifferent to the suffering of the people in the Volta Region and demanded that he be fired.
He thinks that the Volta Region’s residents may hold grudges against Napo since they see him as the cause of their present woes.
Adjei reinforced the notion that Napo could have unfavorable feelings against the Volta Region by reminding readers of other instances in which the organization was purportedly critical of the people living in the region during the 2018 budget announcement.
He urged Ghana to unite and emphasized that no one should be viewed as superior because of where they were born, saying that the Ashanti and Volta regions are on a same footing.
