Hon. Kingsley Ato Cudjoe who is the deputy minister for fisheries and Aquaculture Development has narrated what really happened over the weekend when some angry youth attack his car.
The MP was invited to address a durbar of chiefs and people of Ekumfi Eyisam at their annual Akwanbo Festival on Friday, September 8, 2018.
However, some few minutes after he had mounted the podium to speak, the youth of the area who used to engage in galamsey in Tarkwa metropolis in the Western Region started to hoot at him and asked him when he is going to provide them with jobs.
The Deputy Minister who doubles as the Member of Parliament (MP) for the area was embarrassingly whisked away by the Ekumfi District Chief Executive (DCE) Bernard Paa Grant and some security officers who were present to save the situation from getting out of hands.
The minister has finally explained what actually happened at the event. According to Hon. Kingsley Ato Cudjoe, what happened there was as a result of politics gone wrong. Going further he disclosed that he had never promised the people of that town anything and doesn’t see the reason why some people would say he promised the community but failed to deliver on his promise.
Going on he stated that he went there on the invitation of the town chief and elders and wouldn’t like to call the police to arrest the youth but asked that the elders call the youth and talk with them to settle the matter amicably.
