The Deputy Regional Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Ahafo Region, Nana Aduse Poku has said there is nothing wrong with NPP members ‘enjoying special treatment’ in security recruitment since they are not from China or Argentina.
According to the regional executive, NPP footsoldiers “have the right to enjoy” under a government they voted for because they are qualified.
“Please if I may ask, are NPP footsoldiers from China or Argentina? Are they not also Ghanaians?”, he asked.
He said there are special programs of the NPP government including free SHS, restored trainee allowances and NaBco which is non-discriminatory and allows NDC members to also enjoy. He said it was therefore fair that some opportunities were exclusively left for NPP members as an advantage for their loyalty to Akufo-Addo and Bawumia.
“NDC should know that NPP footsoldiers are going to be fixed for them to also enjoy and rightly so. All government appointees should given recruitment opportunities to party people first before they consider others(from the NDC or any other party).”
