The Zongo Youth Association of Atwima Mponua District has sent a strong caution to their District Chief Executive Hon William Yaw Darko saying they are not going to allow themselves to be played around with or their intelligence toyed with.
Leader of the association, Yusiff Moro alias Dankoko Seidu said this in an interview with Silver FM’s Akwadaa Nyame during Omanbapa program hosted by Nana Kwabena Ampratwum in Kumasi.
Politicians have over years managed to manipulate some members of the Zongo communities in Ghana especially the youth in perpetrating violence but some have attributed this to poverty while some say it spans from lack of Education.
But Yusiff Moro aka Dankoko in his interview disclosed that there are more graduates and learned youth in their communities in recent times than before, reason there are no more other avenues for politicians to manipulate the youth as was done in time past.
In responding to whether his people have started having some good feeling on the NPP government’s and the Atwima Mponua District Assembly promise to help Zongo communities and the transfer of their brother Mr Abass Mohammed who is the senior Engineer in the Atwima Mponua District, Dankoko indicated that he has seen nothing yet; adding that, nothing shows the Atwima Mponua District assembly, headed by Hon Williams Darko is going to do all that it said during the 2016 campaign.
“For the past years,the district has not been able to deliver what they promised us. Everything points to the fact the Zongo communities especially Atwima Mponua District have been neglected. All that our DCE do better is to use our youths to gain power. But I’m stressing on this today that, that is a thing of the past”. He lamented
He disclosed that the Zongo community has now changed, “it’s not the same as yesterday”.
He stressed that, anytime the DCE sees a container or a structure belongs to a person who is a Muslim, he will do all he can to remove it and some times destroyed it without giving any notice. Dankoko added that,the DCE Hon William Darko has stated that he can not work with a Muslims and he is putting what he said into practice since he don’t entertained Muslims in his office. He indicated that, he connived with some of the assembly members to vote against their Muslim brother Baba Yaro when he contested for presiding membership in the district.This Same DCE has also wrote a posting letter on behalf of our another Muslim brother Abass Mohammed who is the engineer of the assembly which according to them,their brother has never requested for any posting.
In his hope for the future of his people, Yusiff Moro hinted that, more of the youths are now educated and there are better CVs in his communities hence nobody will continue to follow the politician again.
He has then threatened to demonstrate against the DCE and the Assembly if he dare not bring back their brother Abass Mohammed to the district.
“Why do you always insult Muslims, are we not human being?.Why do you hate Muslims Soo much?.We are asking the DCE Hon Williams Darko, he lamented.
They have therefore appealed to Nana Ato Atta, Ashanti regional mininster, vice president Dr Alhaji Bawumia to called the DCE to Order or else they will put the law into their own hands.
