Deputy Minister hooted at, nearly beaten and chased away from public function

Deputy Minister for Fisheries and Aquaculture Development, Kingsley Ato Cudjoe was hooted at and nearly beaten by some angry youth of Ekumfi Eyisam in the Central Region on last Saturday, MyNewsGh.com can report.

It took the timely intervention of the Ekumfi District Chief Executive (DCE) Bernard Paa Grant and some security officers to save the situation as the youth with life-threatening objects almost gave the appointee the beating of his life.

The Deputy Minister who doubles as the Member of Parliament (MP) for the area was embarrassingly whisked away to save his life as the youth almost engaged in what could have best been described as a nasty brawl.

MyNewsGh.com reports understand it all started when the MP was invited to address a durbar of chiefs and people of Ekumfi Eyisam at their annual Akwanbo Festival yesterday September 8, 2018

However, the moment he mounted the podium to speak the youth who used to engage in galamsey in Tarkwa in the Western Region started to hoot at the MP and asking him when he is going to provide them with jobs.

They could not understand why they should be thrown out of jobs when the government under president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has not given them jobs.

The minister ended his speech abruptly and boarded his vehicle in an attempt to leave the venue but the angry youth crossed him and started hitting his vehicle with their hands.

This action of the youth angered the DCE who is a native of the town to alight from car to confront the angry youth.

Disappointed by the action of the youth, Mr Bernard threw his hands severally in an attempt to slap some of them for their ‘stupid’ conduct but was blocked from doing so.

This has led to the youth incurring the wrath of the chiefs and elders of the town.

According to an opinion leader who spoke to MyNewsGh.com, they are going to summon the youth to appear before the chiefs to be queried and sanctioned accordingly for disgracing the town.
