A group calling itself, Volta NPP Grassroots for Justice has hit the streets of Ho to demonstrate against the appointment of Dr. Archibald Yao Letsa as the Volta Regional Minister Designate.

They say his reappointment as a regional minister will be detrimental to the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) quest to increase its political fortunes in the Volta Region which is the stronghold of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The demonstrators who were clad in red attire with the inscription, “Volta NPP rejects the appointment of Dr Letsa”, paraded through the principal streets of the regional capital chanting “Dr Letsa must go”.

The protest ended at the Volta Regional Headquarters of the Party where they presented a petition to the regional executives to be delivered to the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo.

The Convener of the Group, Gladstone Azorkor who read the petition on behalf of the group noted that, Dr Letsa ignored the grassroots of the Party in the region during the last four years as the regional minister.

This, he said, has brought retrogression in the Party at the grassroots level since most members are demoralised and disappointed.

Mr Azorko also noted that the group rejects his appointment because he has failed to unify the Party in the region which will negatively affect the Party’s political fortunes going forward.

The Volta Regional Chairman of the NPP, Makafui Woanya who received the petition pledged to deliver it to the appropriate quarters. He however asked the demonstrators to remain calm as the Party’s hierarchy takes steps to resolve their grievances amicably.
