A group calling itself Young People of Cape Coast has reacted to President Nana Akufo-Addo’s apology to indigenes after claiming he never promised to build a harbour in the town in the run-up to the 2020 elections.
Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen Show Thursday, the leader of the group, Abeiku Adams, said the President’s gaffe cannot be described as a mistake but a deliberate attempt to avoid developmental works in the Central Region.
“What the President is doing is only a refusal to develop our area and complete abandoned projects in the Central Region. I think the statement by the President was intentional and not a mistake and so we can never agree,” he said.
He stated the people of Cape Coast will not accept the apology because the platform was not appropriate.
“He made the statement in Cape Coast and so we expect him to come back to Cape Coast and apologise and not sit in Accra and say he made a mistake, we are citizens and so he should treat us with respect because we will not listen to it,” he added.
He, therefore, urged the President to come to Cape Coast and sit down with chiefs and elders of Cape Coast and renegotiate on whether to do a full-blown seaport or a fishing harbour.
