A group calling itself, Alliance for Development (AFD) of the ruling New Patriotic Party in the Western Region has passionately appealed to some party members to stop maligning others and hide behind some unknown youth group to put pressure on President Akufo-Addo to nominate their prefer choices to occupy the Regional Minister's positions which may need substantives to fill the gap as a result of the creation of the new regions.

The Spokesman for the group, Mr Kofi Nimako Danquah in a press statement copied to the media, pleaded with members of NPP who are sponsoring allegedly some stories in the name of traditional chiefs and some unknown youth group pressuring the President to nominate their choices to stop since His Excellency Nana Addo Darkwa Akufo-Addo is far above such propaganda.

Mr. Kofi Nimako, a former critic of the Western Regional Deputy Minister, Hon. Gifty Eugenia Kusi said it is his wish that the President elevates the Deputy Ministers whose substantive Ministers might be moved to head the new Regions to replace them as substantive Ministers, he thinks the final decision lies with the President who is a man of full wisdom and takes wisdom decisions.

He believes the President wisdom decision in appointing those Deputy Ministers two years ago who have worked creditably well will be applied this time around but not this 'staged managed media propaganda'.

He bemoaned the statement by some people that the President should remove older generation replace with younger ones as unfortunate but appealed to the President to disregard such statement which is insulting and indictment to him since he is the one who appointed them two years ago.

He also believes the President knows who will be good for the Regions which shall not be based on a particular generation.

The group, therefore, used the opportunity to commend the President for introducing Free Education at the Secondary level which has enabled more vulnerable children to be enrolled.

The group leaders also commended the President for creating the new Regions which will bring developments to the doorstep of the citizenry.

A leading Member of the group and a former Constituency Executive of Tarkwa-Nsuaem appealed to the Government of His Excellency Nana Addo Darkwa Akufo Addo to complete the Ahwetiaso-Bogoso road and the Bonsa-Benso road and also to GNPC to speed the rate of work at an AstroTurf project at Dompim all in the Tarkwa Nsuaem Constituency.

On Wednesday, February 13, 2019, Nana Addo publicly presented the Constitutional Instrument on the creation of the six newly created regions when he hosted delegations of chiefs from the new region.

Speaking at a ceremony to present Constitutional Instrument (C.I.) 113 for the creation of the regions at the Jubilee House, he named Nalerigu and Damongo as the capital for North East and Savannah region respectively. He also named Techiman as the capital of Bono East Region.

Goaso was also named as the capital for the Ahafo Region whiles Sefwi-Wiawso was named as the capital of the newly-created Western North Region.

The President named Dambai as the capital for the Oti Region.

Here are the capitals of the newly created regions:

North East Region - Nalerigu

Savannah Region - Damongo

Bono East Region - Techiman Ahafo Region - Goaso

Western North Region - Sefwi-Wiawso

Oti Region - Dambai

The group comprises of some former NPP Constituency Executives, Council of Elders, Electoral Coordinators, some former polling stations executives, some current polling station executives among others.
