The past few days has been very eventful days in the Kpone Traditional Area following news of the action of their paramount chief.
The Paramount Chief of the Kpone Traditional Council, Nii Tetteh Otu II, was in the news for allegedly disrespecting President Akufo-Addo when he visited the town.
According to various media reports, the chief walked out on the president during a durbar of chiefs and people held in his honor to commission some projects in the town.
It was reported that the chief got agitated after he realised that the structure that was going to be commissioned was not the same as the one on the artistic impression.
He flared up stating that the politicians had over the time been deceiving the people in his town without living up to expectation of what they promised.
After tempers were calmed down, President Akufo-Addo explained that the New Patriotic Party has not promised and failed the people in Kpone because, the people of Kpone have never voted for the NPP.
As part of the regional tour of former President John Dramani Mahama, he also visited the town to make his intentions known to them.
He said that if he wins the 2020 elections, he would fulfil all campaign promises he has made to the people of Ghana.
In reaction, Nii Tetteh Otu II underscored the need for Mahama to refrain from making extravagant promises, "and go by his promises".
The chief indicated that some political leaders talked the electorate into voting for them prior to the 2016 elections but after they were given the mandate, failed to live by those promises.
Nii Tetteh Otu II expressed displeasure at how some promises like the One District-One Factory (1D1F) and a host of other promised were being executed.
In other news, the National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, revealed that the next NDC government will recruit more youth into the Police Service.
According to Ofosu-Ampofo, John Dramani Mahama, would be recruiting about 8,000 Ghanaian youth into the police service, with 40% of that population being women.
In a report filed by Peacefmonline, Ofosu-Ampofo said that the flagbearer of the NDC is committed to increasing the police to civilian ratio in the country.
