Group of Youth from the Ahantaland who calls themselves as the Coastal Patriots are backing Kwesi Biney to become the next Western Regional Minister.
Below is the Press Release;
KWESI BINEY STANDS TALL
The saying that “one good term deserves another” has not been experienced in the political dispensation of the people of Ahanta West Constituency, the people of Ahanta West have kept faith with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) from day one that the founding fathers of our party (NPP) decided to come together and form this party. Since 1996, the NPP has never had less than 50% of the total vote cast in the Constituency.
Below is our proof of faithfulness of the people of Ahanta west to the NPP since 1996.
1996 NPP-16,994(54.35%) NDC-13,215(42.27%)
The statistics above indicate that we have kept faith with the NPP in every election. Under the 8yrs of former President Kuffour’s administration, not even one person from Ahanta west was appointed and given any position at the national or even the regional level. We still believed and followed the NPP till Nana Addo became President. The people of Ahanta West now believe that it’s time for the NPP to reward the Constituency with the vacant position that has been created due to the creation of the new region (Western North).
The Coastal Patriots Of Ahanta, which is coalition of all the believers of the Dankwa Drombo Busua tradition in the Coastal belt of the Ahanta West Municipality believe that it’s our time to be given the position of a regional minister. And we recommend no other person than one of the most experienced politicians in the country, and the former DCE for the then Ahanta West District, Hon Kwesi Biney the man who has served the party and the nation in various capacities.
The only DCE of Kufuor’s govt. to contest for regional executive position when we went into opposition in 2009 which he won and became the 1st Vice Chairman of the party in the Western Region.
He was always on Radio and T. V. defending the party.
Between 2009 and 2017 he wrote more than 500 articles in defence of NPP, and Nana Akufo Addo.
He is found on every political rally the party organized particularly in the twin city.
In 2016, he worked in the 3 Nzema Constituencies during the campaign and supported in some cases with logistics.
He organised training for Communication officers in the region.
He is a loyal Akufo Addo man.
He is frank, principled and has integrity, and him being part of the regional campaign communication team 2016 makes him STAND TALL
Kwesi Biney served on the 2017 government regional transitional team for then Western, Central, Brong Ahafo and Ashanti regions with Gifty Kusi and Nana Ato Arthur. The two were offered appointment after the exercise leaving Hon. Kwesi Biney out. This is very unfair to Hon Kwesi Biney and the people of Ahanta land who have been very loyal to NPP all this while. Kwesi Biney, the son of Ahanta deserves that position.
The Coastal Patriots of Ahanta is by this release bringing to the attention of the regional executives, the national executives, and the President Nana Addo that an Ahanta is also capable, we cannot be treated like we don’t have the men, our service and loyalty must be rewarded with this ministerial position.
Apart from the hardworking and the loyalty of the people of Ahanta West, we are also recommending a very competent person in Hon Kwesi Biney to be considered
