President Mahama and the National Congress Democratic (NDC) has been lambasted by the he Konkomba Youth Association (KOYA) over ministerial appointments.
According to the group, the President was expected to give the Konkomba tribe a fair share of the positions looking at the fact that it is the largest tribe which saw the government ascend into power.
This was made known during an annual congress of Kokonba Youth Association (KOYA) in Saboba in the Northern Region, where President of KOYA, Roland Kofi Mbui, argued that Mahama has ‘stabbed’ them in the back; showering praises on the NPP for appointing a Konkomba into a ministerial position.
With our population size in the North and Volta as the second largest ethnic group as well as fair distribution of our people in the Eastern and Bono Ahafo Regions, the party has failed to recognize us with ministerial positions
We have however noted that the NPP is sympathetic with us during their tenure of office and even in opposition…To this end, we were given a cabinet ministerial position at the Ministry of Local Government and three deputy ministerial positions. In opposition, NPP has given deputy Minority Leader position to our brother (Dominic Nitiwul).
The group is however perturbed as to a position to take now, either to rise up and vanderlise NDC party billboards and properties as others have done before they are recognized?
The group is howvever chosen not to go that way but will show President Mahama and the NDC that they are a force to winning and losing elections in their areas.
