The former Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports under the now in opposition, National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration, Joseph Yamin says the the Ashanti Region, the stronghold of the incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP) and from who the bulk of the NPP’s votes came from in the 2020 elections, that they are now embarrassed for having voted them into power.
According to him, the Region has been neglected by the NPP and for that reason they have been left in disbelief, regret and embarrassment for having voted Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the NPP into power.
“If you compare votes the NDC had in the Ashanti Region to that of NPP, you will expect them to see rapid growth and development under the NPP but that is not the case. The erstwhile NDC administration contributed immensely to the development of the region as compared to the ruling NPP.
‘…Natives of the Ashanti Region who voted for the NPP feel disgraced and embarrassed all the time. Any Ashanti who campaigned and called on Ghanaians to vote the NPP to power are shy and can’t even lift their heads in public.”
Joseph Yamin made the headlines recently for suggesting that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s name should be deleted from the history books of Ghana for being the most corrupt President in our history.
