The Concerned Voters Movement (CVM) is asking the Concerned Youth of Asante (CYA) and National Chairman of United Front Party (UFP) Leader, Nana Agyenim Boateng, to stop waging the tribal politics against some government officials, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko and Nana Asante Bediatuo.
CVM leadership is convinced Nana Agyenim Boateng, who endorsed former President John Mahama and NDC 2016 elections, is being sponsored by the former President and his wife Lordina Mahama to embark on what it says it is “John Mahama’s sponsored evil agenda.”
In a press statement, the CVM Founder and President, Razak Kojo Opoku, insists the Concerned Youth of Asante (CYA) was formed by NDC Activists such as Listowel Nana Kusi-Poku, Henry Adubofour who is a very close associate to Lordina Mahama and Nana Agyenim Boateng.
“CVM can proof beyond reasonable doubt that John Mahama and Lordina Mahama are solidly behind the Concerned Youth of Asante (CYA).
“The agenda for the formation of CYA is to create disaffection and political hostility between Asantes and Akyems in order to dismantle the front of NPP in Ashanti and Eastern regions,” it maintains.
This, CVM leadership says, is a very tomfoolery agenda spearheaded by Nana Agyenim Boateng and sponsored by John Mahama and Lordina Mahama.
“For avoidance of doubt, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko can never incite his mother’s people(Akyems) against his father’s people (Asantes). Gabby can never fight and undermine half of his blood.
Only the ignorant CYA led by Nana Agyenim Boateng think that Gabby is 100% Akyem. Gabby is half Akyem and half Asante, just in case the ignorant members of CYA are not aware of the blood lineage of Gabby,” the statement says.
CVM leadership maintains that Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko and Nana Asante Bediatuo are not undermining and undercutting the authority of their own King and Asante Monarch, adding that they have no intentions and no such powers and authority to sabotage the Asante Monarch.
“It is also never true that Otumfuo Osei-Tutu II specifically mentioned Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko and Nana Asante Bediatuo as the ones pitching him against Akyems,” the statement adds.
CVM entreats Ghanaians ignore the agenda by Concerned Youth of Asante, stressing that the Asante-Akyem tribal politics never worked for the NDC in 2016 and it will never work in future elections.
