Nana Addo Starves Arabic Teachers For 17 Months – Nurudeen Abass

        Arabic teachers under the Youth Employment Program have not been paid for the past seventeen months.  The inhuman attitude towards our Muslim brothers according to Mr. Abass Nurudeen, Ashanti regional communications director of the opposition National Democratic Congress is a deliberate attempt by the NPP government to look down upon our Arabic teachers.  According to Abass Nurudeen, if the government has Arabic teachers at heart why has those Arabic teachers under the Youth Employment Program not been paid for 17 months?.  He further questioned about Ashanti region’s share of the Zongo development fund the president promised.  He made this known in a press conference held yesterday at the party’s regional office in Kumasi.  He however, asked the president as to why he did  not visit the Kejetia central market traders to have first-hand information on how the allocation process is going when the president visited the region last week.  Again, why did he not visit Obuasi to speak to issues of small-scale mining?He  believes the President’s answer to these questions will further reinforce and expose his deceitfulness and the ingratitude of the NPP to the Ashanti Region.” Indeed, President Akufo Addo whilst neglecting his party’s World Bank and feeding it with peanuts, has not forgotten about his own backyard which continues to receive the best of road network and other social amenities. It is certainly time for the World Bank to be appreciated with its fair share of the pie under the party that enjoys the lion’s share of its electoral support”.He further noted.  Nurudeen Abass further deduced that, If President Akufo-Addo ever dreams that our people will be moved by sweet-sounding rhetorics and empty promises again,then he must have a rethink. This he said is because, in 2020, he will be judged solely based on his abysmal performance in government.  He then   call on the people of the Ashanti Region not to despair, but to persevere in demanding what is their due from a government they overwhelmingly placed their trust in 2016.  “Of course, we are aware of recent attempts to suppress legitimate public concerns over the stunted pace of development in the region under this sterile Akufo-Addo government. We in the NDC will continue to hold this government accountable for their promises to the people of the Ashanti Region. He concluded. Source
