Youth For Nzema-Manle And Western Development

Press Release

Bravo! Mr. President

We officially write to commend the President of the

Republic of Ghana His Excellency Prof. John Evans Atta Mills for appointing Hon.

Lee Ocran, High Commissioner to South Africa as Minister of Education designate

and Hon. Steve Ackah, Member of Parliament for Suaman as the Deputy Minister

designate for Local government to serve in his government.

The two appointment is very crucial to us the youth

and entire citizenry at large since it would serve as a major boost to the

development of the Western region and Ghana as a whole.

Although we have been waiting for this far too long

we believe it has come at the appropriate time where the region is experiencing

massive development both in the oil and gas sectors.

It is however evident that the President’s

appointment to the distinguished personalities in the region cuts across the

various groups in the region made up of the four major walls of the such as

Ahanta, Wassa, Aowin and Nzema as compared to previous regimes which focused on

only the few groups that yielded nothing but sought to deepened the woes of the


We commend the President for his vision to equally

give the people of the Western region a fair share by appointing individuals

who hails from the region and would urge his to do more; since we believe there

are more of such untapped able-resourced individuals from the region who can be

brought on board to execute and achieve his goals.

If the president in his first term can allocate to

the region a remarkable and enviable portfolios then if given the chance can do

more for the people in terms of engaging the human resource base of the region

who will assist him to embark upon his better projects for all

It is our view that these two gentlemen will add up

to the resource build up base of the western region and therefore urge then to

work hand in hand with their colleagues who are already serving as Ministers to

help lobby for more developmental projects; since the region notwithstanding

its heavily endowed natural resources made up of Gold, Diamond, Timber,

Bauxite, Manganese, Cocoa and above all the oil and gas explorations is faced

with slow pace of development.

Also we encourage them to use their influences to

create platforms that would always bring the fortunes to the welfare of the people

which will go the way to improve their living standards.

We the members and the entire youth are in full

support of all the president’s appointees in the region and therefore call on

them to unite for one common goal towards the achievement of rapid

developmental projects.

Once again we thank the president for his visionary leadership

style that has reflected positively on the sudden rise of the region’s

development and urged all to pray for both new and existing appointees for

divine health and wisdom.

Thank you


Evans Osei
